Publisher Description

Castle by J. Robert Lennon

"Castle tells a terrific story, dire and confusing and convincing." —Scott Bradfield, The New York Times Book Review

Eric Loesch, a private man with a shadowy past, returns to his hometown in rural New York, where he purchases a dilapidated house that he begins to renovate with steely determination. The adjacent woods on his property seem to beckon him, and he soon discovers a Gothic castle at the center of his land that he appears not to own. Loesch looks for an explanation, and the reader is drawn into a "terrifying and psychologically complex mystery signaling an important American writer in full command of his powers."*

Fails to come together

I don’t get it. Furthermore, I served in Kuwait and Iraq and I STILL don’t get it. Just not sure what this book was about. I think he tries to weave two or three stories into one, and int he end losses all three. Clearly the author is a good writer, but it seemed to me the story rambled on with no destination in mind and culminated in a benign ending. I’m disappointed I spent so much time reading it rather than something that would have proven more satisfying.

Castle

This was the worst book I have ever listened to/read! I slugged through the first few chapters thinking it would pick up and it did and then it jumped to another country in the story, jumped back to the present and then just ended. I actually thought I had missed some chapters and went back through to make sure. Dont waste your money!
