Description

The village of Saint-Ferdinand has all the trappings of a quiet life: farmhouses stretching from one main street, a small police precinct, a few diners and cafés, and a grocery store. Though if an out-of-towner stopped in, they would notice one unusual thing - a cemetery far too large and much too full for such a small town, lined with the victims of the Saint-Ferdinand Killer, who has eluded police for nearly two decades. It's not until after Inspector Stephen Crowley finally catches the killer that the town discovers even darker forces are at play. When a dark spirit reveals itself to Venus McKenzie, one of Saint-Ferdinand's teenage residents, she learns that this creature's power has a long history with her town - and that the serial murders merely scratch the surface of a past burdened by evil secrets.

Ce que les critiques disent

"Move over True Detective. A rich, gothic story of murder and mystery, A God in the Shed is quite possibly one of the most enthralling novels I've read in the last 10 years. Dubeau is a force to be reckoned with." (Jerry Smith, Fangoria Magazine and Blumhouse.com)

Didnt see that coming.

Ill be honest, I’m not much of reader but was certainly intrigued by this book having heard the author talk about it on various podcasts. I chose the audiobook route because I have a terrible attention span. About 10 chapters in I was hooked and knew it was well worth my time. Hoping for a sequel and also excited to check out JFs other books!

Starts off great, but ends rather flat.

I won't spoil anything, but the book looks really promising at first. As things go on, the plot becomes rather hokey, and the charm was lost.

Dark and wonderful!

This book was wonderful from beginning to end. From the very start this book had my attention and I couldn’t quit listening. David Marantz did an exceptional job with the narration, something that I sometimes struggle with. This book was dark and gripping, I haven’t enjoyed a read this much in a long time!

Wonderful and dark.

Human darkness manifested. What happens when you discover the God of your own making. This brings into perspective the idea that we create our own demons and hell.

Nice and creepy, but begs a sequel

a great little gothic creep-and-gore of a mystery story but feels unfinished, leaves unanswered questions.

entertaining

This was a good rainy day book… not necessarily scary but intriguing and entertaining. It’s always a point scored by the author when I find myself rooting for a character, hoping they get a happy ending.

There were some annoyances… like overuse of the phrase “the big farm boy”. But those didn’t distract enough from the story to make me stop listening.

An Utter Disaster and Disappointment

This book had so much promise and the narrator was so good; I was really looking forward to what Dubeau had in store... Unfortunately, what the author had to offer was super boring and a waste of my time.

In the 1800's, a man named Nathan Cicero and his friends discover a strange deity living in a cave in the woods. At first, the deity is childlike and the boys play with him, using certain rules (the most important of which being that the players cannot move while there are eyes on them). This is what became known as Cicero's Curse--the God could not move as long as there were some form of eyes on him. Years later, we meet Venus Mackenzie, who sets up a digital video camera in order to document the hatching of a nest of birds. What ends up happening is that the God, summoned by the promise of the bird meat, is drawn and therefore trapped by the camera.

Throughout the story, the reader meets a TON of characters, which I find to be Dubeau's downfall. You have all these people with various motivations and secrets and no time to put them into a logical order. Unfortunately, this book is a train wreck and I, always hopeful of a gruesome scene, found the ones in the book to be boring and lazy.

Overall, I think Dubeau had a superb idea and definitely tools to do it with...he just didn't. If I'd read the physical version, it would receive one star from me. The only thing that brings the score up a tad is the incredible performance by David Marantz. He was able to capture so much and the only creepy moments I found were when Marantz was doing the voice of the god.

So, book gets an F grade from me and narrator gets an A-.

Harrowing, disturbing, and twisted.

This eerie tale of murder and supernatural revenge recalls touches of Stephen King's It and The Last Stand, cast over the sacrifice of a still living soul to a cruel and twisted god with a pinch of magic tossed in for flavor. With a wide array of believable characters, this conflict between the natural and supernatural realms rages across time on a small Canadian town, the battlefield on which humanity and a demon god struggle for existence. Overall, an engaging tale with just a few tropes common to the genre, but none that detract. I can promise you I won't be watching the TV series of this tale. I like to sleep.

Third Rate

The positive reviews of this book completely misled me. I suffered through the first couple hours and could not force myself to finish it. The story was dumb, the writing was stilted and the narration was sub-par. Whenever an author uses phrases like "she used the forest foliage to conceal her presence" rather than "she hid behind a tree", I know the author is trying too hard. This Stephen King wannabe needs to go back for a few writing seminars.
