5つ星のうち 5.0 Compelling Characters 2014/6/29
投稿者 KhayaR - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
It's been long since I had a book hangover. This is what the book did, it kept me awake late at night because it was so difficult to put down. Let Sleeping Gods Lie is a page-turner, I was absorbed from the beginning till the end. Dianne Gray certainly knows how to tell a story, and as the title suggests, there are layers in the story that keep revealing characters in a new light.

The setting of the story is well accomplished. It captures not only the place or landscape but people in that environment, and how they change as the story unfolds. As I was reading the book, I felt like I know these characters, I've met them somewhere at some point. They behave exactly as you would expect them to and yet they are capable of surprise. The “real-life” characters and their emotions I could relate to, were the highlight for me. They stay with you long after you've finished the book.

Personally I think it's a bit unfair to ask a writer for a sequel, more especially if the ending is satisfying but this is one of those books I wouldn't mind a sequel of.

5つ星のうち 3.0 Similes and metaphors everywhere... 2014/12/16
投稿者 Lynxie - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
Let Sleeping Gods Lie is the fourth of Dianne's books I've read, and I'd have to say my least favourite.

It wasn't because the characters were bad, or the story uninteresting. No, the issue I had was with the overuse of similes and metaphors.

Some of them were so bad I actually cringed when reading them. Arms like burnt chicken wings, a face splitting like a can of beans... it was a bit much. Which is why this book has obtained my 'editing required' shelving tag. I think removing some of the random details would make it crisper and a lot nicer to read and most certainly would bump up my rating to at least 4 stars.

This aside, I loved the characters, even the bad ones. I felt that they all played their parts really well. The story flowed nicely and kept me interested. I liked the variety of characters too, we weren't left with cookie cutter families, I liked the messed up family unit of the Landau's, I mean I wouldn't for a second want to meet them, but I liked the complexities of their family unit.

When you add to this story the questions around religion and beliefs, it just all came together in a gnarly mess that somehow just seemed to work.

A decent book if you can overlook the weird similes and metaphors, and by a fantastic Aussie author to boot.

5つ星のうち 5.0 A dark and elegantly written read 2015/7/13
投稿者 Carrie - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
A man raised in a strict, religious family and community--a cult really--flees at the age of 15 only to return ten years later at the request of his family. He knows something is up but isn't sure what. Needless to say, they don't have his best interests at heart. Meanwhile, a woman seeking answers about her mother returns to the same community, and with the help of a local resident, she discovers some disturbing secrets. This is a dark and elegantly written book, and I enjoyed how all the elements weaved together into a satisfying ending.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Fast Paced, Action Packed, Suspense Filled 2014/6/22

Dianne Gray knows how to write a story that makes readers want to get to the finish line to see what happens . . . but also makes readers wish the story would go on forever.

A sequel to Let Sleeping Gods Lie might be just the thing.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Superb writing! 2014/7/21
投稿者 C.Stastny Books - (Amazon.com)

Wow! That’s all I can say. The language and metaphors in this story stunned me. Dianne Gray has a gift for description and showing normal, bland everyday scenes in new ways that make them come alive. Every paragraph made me smile and think, “That was a good way to describe a river…or a mountain, or a man’s smile.”

This story deals with a girl who is honoring her dead mother’s last wishes to sprinkle her ashes on a hill she loved as a child. But what Ali gets as she travels back to her mom’s past will change her whole future. Great story with colorful characters that make Australia come to life.
