The Point is a dark thriller that will allow you to witness a truly dangerous sociopath wander through madness guided by a treasured family heirloom, and a pensive young woman find her way after discovering, that which doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger. With echoes of the Coen brothers’ Fargo, the folksy town of Iron Bay and the nearby north-woods community of Deer Lake are the destinations for Mr. Buchman’s many misdeeds.
Our Book Review
A very hard hitting dark story with explicit descriptions of a sexual nature as well as the dark side of a person's mind. The story revolves around Dane Buchman and his desires to take what he wants using any means possible, his actions impact not just on the people he hurts but the town he lives in as well.
The results of Dane's actions lead to a very good insight to how victims minds are affected by tragedy. The author portrays a story of innocence against evil and how difficult it is to get to the truth and prove it when it is one persons word against another.
I found this book to be a very gritty and enthralling read. I think the author was very brave in their writing and should be applauded for following their instinct to give the reader a real insight in how sociopaths think and react, this adds flavour and content to a good read. Due to the use of the explicit descriptions, which are essential to the story, it will not be to every readers liking.
On the other side of the tale is Dane's victim and the author again illustrates how with a lot of love and caring people around you and with their patience you can pull through life's trials and tribulations and live a normal life.
The Point is a dark thriller which will take you on a journey which will open your mind and want the bad guy to be caught and put your arms around his victim and protect her.
