Read full description of the books Arboreatum:I really had to bring this review out again for Halloween as this author currently has another book out. I think that Evans needs far more exposure and today seems right to me. So also check out Candie Apple: A Halloween Tale
Firstly, can you imagine not eating for several days and then being persuaded to eat clay just to give you bulk and volume? Secondly, can you also imagine being in a wagon train when suddenly a religious fanatic called Lemuel has a “revelation” and wants everyone to leave the established trail? Evidently Lemuel used to be normal but his “creeping mental shift had blossomed into a full-blown messianic delusion. No surprise there. He was always rambling about finding the Garden of Eden and other such nonsense.”
As soon as I read this, I became apprehensive. I’m not really into horror but I trusted Melki’s review. I hate it when I get frightened and I don’t want to turn the page, however, this happened rather frequently in this very unusual book.
The wagon train continues on its way without listening to family man Lemuel and he persuades his good friend Samuel (strange rhyming of names here) and all of his family to follow his “revelation”. God indeed was telling his to do this and yes, they do indeed find the Promised Land. For after travelling in the “wilderness”, this magical place dramatically appears like a mirage on a ridge in the distance. Four individuals are standing there and Lemuel has his gun ready. No spoiler here.
A verdant-looking valley, with enormous trees and three houses could be seen. This was heaven for teenager Micah, Samuel’s son and also Anna, Lemuel’s daughter. They find everything is provided for them: food, water, comfort, a fully stocked smokehouse. As soon as I saw the large apple trees with their fruit, well the story then gets well and truly underway.
This is a very fast moving, beautifully described book but it is still horror and you, the reader, will get a really good taste of it. The word is “gripping” here.
I wouldn’t have missed this book for the world and I recommend it for all ages.
