    1. When I first started this novel, I thought it was just going to be another apocalyptic novel like Domain by James Herbert This is absolutely not a bad thing I love apocalyptic stuff, but Kenyon takes the apocalypse to a new level of horror The nuclear blasts are just the beginning For a group of friends in their late teens, luck could not have been kinder to them, for they had decided to get high in a bomb shelter when all hell breaks loose Then, things start to get very strange and unexpected T [...]

    6. First off let me say that I really wanted to love this book because I got it free from the author like a lot of other people.That said I have to say that I only thought it OK.I have a hard time caring for characters who I don t really like very much and I didn t like the main character much.Yes,at times,I did feel compassion for him because of what he went through with his family before the big event but that doesn t mean that I thought he was a very worthwhile individual.And the big Oh.So that [...]

    9. Sparrow Rock is a post apocalyptic tale that incorporates a nuclear attack and a biologically enhanced second wave I ve read a few post apocalyptic books and this one seems to capture the essence of what it would be like given the circumstances.The characters are teens who go off to get stoned in the newly finished bomb shelter The parents of one of the teens had it built If fate was a lottery, these kids hit big at least to begin with They close the hatch and wait it out for a month In that tim [...]


    10. I read and enjoyed Nate Kenyon s Sparrow Rock Maybe after reading John Ajvide Lindqvist s Let the Right One In, and Mark Z Danielewski s House of Leaves, I have come to expect much from the horror genre than another horror pulp I do find them addictive like Brian Greene and could see the appeal of being told what to feel and think in books like his and Nate s Right now, it seems that he relies on the side twist plot of the narrator s mental illness and hallucinations, and the fear of the return [...]

    13. After reading the first view pages I was not very enthusiastic to continue reading The plot sounded too familiar and used to me But, as a rule, I read every book to its end, and Sparrow Rock is one of those books that reward the effort and get better with every turned page Step by step, the story reveals depth and complexity and proves that it is far than your average day after monster horror scenario As we get familiar and sympathetic with the narrator, his background, his thoughts and feeli [...]


    14. Very quick, enjoyable read left me wanting Is there going to be a sequel I certainly hope so My only gripe is that the cast of characters are teenagers, but that s a personal bias of mine and has nothing to do with the author Very well written, I never suspected the twist at the end, which was quite refreshing With a little meat I would have rated this higher I give it a 3.5 stars I highly recommend this author and look forward to reading his other books.

    20. 4 AND 1 2 STARS Sparrow Rock is one of top releases in horror for 2010 It has crawled its way into my top 5 books for the year and is, so far, the crowning achievement of author Nate Kenyon While Kenyon s past work was always technically well written, I always thought his weakness was the story, which for me, is the most important I was thrilled to discover that the story of Sparrow Rock succeeded on almost every level With tremendous conviction, originality, and chock full of scares, author Ken [...]


    21. Post apocalyptic novels have come a long ways since the 50s and 60s The writer can no longer get away with just one of two nuclear bombs In the early 60s we were naive The schools were still teaching duck and cover when On The Beach, Fail Safe and Alas Babylon were published Nowadays those novels seems as naive as duck and cover Little did we know that we really should be worrying about zombie epidemics, bio chemical holocausts, and mind controlling insects.Nat Kenyon s Sparrow Rock starts out l [...]
