07 Dec First review!
I was delighted to see the first review for The Isle appear on Goodreads/Amazon this morning. It went like this:
A closed society. Secrets. Atmosphere you can taste. Names have power and John C Foster was wise enough to dedicate THE ISLE to the pair who came up with the historical names for this horrifying novel of one New England village.
Foster’s writing was beautiful and flowed easily from one page to the next. He took care to write conversation in the dialect of Maine, giving the book even more flavor.
My only complaint was the abrupt ending. Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed this truly dark book and am rounding my review up to 5 stars.’
