One thought on “Gilchrist: A Novel

  1. Lena

    Nothing about a real vampire is elegant An ancient darkness revels in its influence over a small town There is no waiting for the action to begin murder and mayhem are long term bedfellows of Gilchrist, the Derry of Massachusetts.This was everything I wanted out of Ghost Road Blues, and never got, with a dash of The Shining Fast paced, satisfying, and dark Occasionally too dark I took off a star for the animal abuse Yes, it draws a straight connection that people who hurt animals hurt people too [...]

    I like reading horror My grandfather introduced me to Stephen King when I was 10 11 years old I was an advanced reader and had run out of books to read while at my grandfather s lake house I guess I was annoying him because he shoved It in my hands, told me to read it and to leave him alone My mother wasn t thrilled but she allowed me to read Stephen King novels I have been a fan of reading them ever since.I am originally from the North Shore of MA I grew up and lived there for 37 years, before [...]

    I received a copy of this book in a giveaway I enjoyed this much than I expected to It reminded me very much of early Dean Koontz I m not often haunted by books, but this one kept me thinking about it throughout the day, when I wasn t actually reading I had dreams about it once or twice It definitely stuck with me, and probably will for quite some time It s scary without being overly bloody for the most part and it doesn t come across as cliche or like a rehash of anything I ve read before I de [...]

  4. Hmmm

    The most frightening thing about this book is how many people are giving it good ratings.What a shame I didn t absolutely hate it but I certainly didn t like it Its as if this story had good bones but a terrible execution I honestly did not enjoy any of the characters and there was not even a single one that I liked I wasn t moved to care about what happened to any of them The entire book was sloppy and somewhat disjointed and not just because of the shifting narrators perspectives Which I often [...]

  5. WordsAPlenty

    Gilchrist by Christian Galacar is terrifying Stephen King made his readers afraid of clowns, cars and so much Christian Galacar WILL make you afraid of small towns and memories Peter Martell and his wife start anew in small town Gilchrist to recover from the death of their son What they don t count on is the unseen evil that lives just below the surface of the town, just barely out of sight but horrifyingly and dangerously real Nothing is coincidental in this town and no one is safe I LOVED thi [...]

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review, which follows The story starts out with ordinary sad and a bit desperate, but ordinary people doing ordinary things A sense of foreboding and evil builds slowly through the book until it bursts forth in earnest A horror story, to be sure, that is populated with people who are normal until it becomes clear that most of them are anything but normal And what happens in very far from normal.In the early going, the book kept me interest [...]

  7. Connie Rocke

    I enjoyed reading this classic horror story A bit hard to relate to in the beginning, but then it became a real page turner I thought for sure this was a Stephen King pseudonym because it read like his earlier works The premise was good and the monster was good I did think this author, Christian Galacar, could have made two or three books out of this one some great ideas here could have been developed and concluded For example, expand the famous writer concept and end the story with that writer [...]

    A little bit king, a little bit koonzStarted slow, built up the characters He could have had some help with that and a bit about the monster to A little drawn out but if it lost a few pages that would be ok More monster development, what was it and why He has the makings of a good horror author He just have to find a bit of his own style and form After saying all that, you did ok I take a chance on another one or your books.

  10. Brian S. Shipe

    InterestingVery good read,but a few sidelines.I thought about all the deaths going on where really not needede church ordeal was a bad chapter,and found it out of place actions of people are always a burden upon themselves.evil is a wicked tool,that unfortunately,only GOD himself can stop.

  11. Randy

    AwesomeThis was a complete surprise and I m so glad I read it An incredibly good book, it made me wonder if Stephen King, or even Robert Macmmon had written it under a pseudonym A small town under the influence of something ancient and evil, this was old school horror at its best I hope this isn t the last we hear from Mr Galacar This is great stuff
