When I found The Enfield Horror, it was just one of the three books that makes this such a cool read. I thought it was just a horror story- but at the end, I found out, for a few bucks more, I could get the entire tale So I did. Ron Ripley is evidently known for throwing shorts together to make trilogies. The trilogy, was about 132-pages long and kept me, all the way till the ending...
I read other reviews on this book, because I was trying to decide if I wanted to purchase the other two books. Many loved Ripley's previous works but said something was wrong with this one. Since it was my first book by the author, I figured I had nothing to compare it to, so I'd not be disappointed.
Don't get me wrong, the story was very original. The Enfield Horror took place in a New England town, where everyone knows everyone. But no one knew there was a strange lodge hidden in the woods. Not until a storm came and opened up the area, allowing it to be spotted- but the lodge wasn't the problem. Well, not the real problem.
I really wanted to enjoy this story. It was different, it was filled with action and there was no rhyme or reason to any of it. It was funny from time to time and quite realistic when it came to the way the townsfolk and sheriff handled things. What I did not like was the ending.
Everything else was okay. It was a simple read- straight forward with nothing to really figure out. I felt like I was simply along for the ride. I was happy till the ending, where I was like: "Wha?" I literally shut down my ipad with yuck in my mouth (not bitter). Then to top it all off, I was offered a chapter or two that had been cut from the original publishing. Of course, like a fool, I had to sign up for the author mailing- no big, right? Well, I never even got the frigging thing!!! What kinda deal is that?
I didn't even send the website a message; I just let it go. I rated the story one spec less than what I'd originally thought to rate it. Some stories are difficult to close, I understand that, but the price the characters had to pay, made me pay too! And that ain't right, no siree Bob!
I'm on to the next book. 📚
