Sunstruck


Polenth has published a book that I really enjoyed. It's a paranormal story, a cop buddy story, and a mystery story all rolled into one but somehow she's made it more than any of those. She's taken the legend of Bigfoot (which I would never have guessed could be interesting) and created a culture for them that that I found intriguing and convincing. It read to me like good science fiction where we see ourselves through the eyes (and in this case nose) of an alien, although in this case it's a terrestrial alien.

I liked the really quirky characters a lot and I enjoyed the exchanges between Ari (the Bigfoot) and her OCD human partner Ben. There is a plot but for me this was the least important aspect of the book. I just thoroughly enjoyed stepping into Ari and Ben's world and I can't wait for the next book to come out so I can join them there again. I think you might like it too.

First, anyone with a name like Polenth is A-OK with me!! Polenth! That's brilliant!

Second. Big Foot!! Am so annoyed with people trying to fight/locate/hunt/kill this creature that any literature where he or she! could be the hero and maybe turn the tables on stupid humans is fab! Yay!

Take care

Kitty, Polenth has done a really good job of telling the story, too!

Hmm.. I'm not sure whether I'd pick up this book, but when you told about the quirky characters, I became quite attracted.. Thanks for sharing!

Lily, I was so not interested in Bigfoot until I read this! I found it a bit densely written and slightly confusing at first but still entertaining and it got better as it went on.
