Gilchrist
Gilchrist | Christian Galacar
5 posts | 3 read | 8 to read
Two years after losing their infant son to a tragic accident, Peter Martell, a novelist with a peculiar knack for finding lost things, and his wife, Sylvia, are devastated to learn they may no longer be able to have children. In need of a fresh start, and compelled by strange dreams, the couple decide to rent a lake house in the idyllic town of Gilchrist, Massachusetts, a place where bad things might just happen for a reason. As bizarre events begin to unfold around them-a chance encounter with a gifted six-year-old boy, a series of violent deaths, and repeated sightings of a strange creature with a terrifying nature-Peter and Sylvia are drawn into the chaos and soon discover that coming to Gilchrist may not have been their decision at all. Set against a small New England town in the summer of 1966, GILCHRIST is a sinister tale about the haunting origins of violence, evil, and the undying power of memory.

In the town of Gilchrist, which is a little reminiscent of Stephen King's Derry, bad things happen. A couple grieving the loss of their son come to Gilchrist to heal, but the evil that lurks beneath the damp soil of this small town has other plans for them.

Yes, this book does leave some things unexplained, but it's a creepy horror filled mess all the way to the end.

I was immersed in the story from the get go. The writing had a very Stephen King feel to it, which makes me want to check out Mr. Galacar's other works. I felt the last ~100 pages of this 500 page beast didn't quite keep up with the same feel as the first 80% of the book. That's not to say it wasn't good, it just took on a different vibe; perhaps a bit more distant and immersive. I definitely recommend giving this a read! #horror #thriller

It was okay, but it leaves a lot of stuff unexplained.
