May 1 – The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson

As gruesome as his descriptions of being a serious burn victim are, I still enjoyed Andrew Davidson’s novel The Gargoyle tremendously. Not only is it well written, but the unexpected story told by Marianne and how unreliable both his narration and hers become. It is at once a psychological thriller, a moral novel, a love story, a novel about art and sculpture, about religion and faith, a fantasy, historical fiction, a story about addiction and recovery and a story about hope – but more than all of these combined – an extremely well written novel.

I hope that Andrew Davidson has more for us, because I am ready and waiting for his next!
