The small town of Dunnville is no stranger to fear  . I absolutely loved Gord Rollo's last book, "The Jigsaw Man", and recommended it to all my friends, but I thought his latest book, "Crimson", was a considerable step down. Granted, those were mighty big shoes to fill since Jigsaw was one of the best books of that year, but had I not known, I never would have guessed this book had the same author.

He's got a unique story telling style that is somewhat like Jeff Strand with descriptive actions, except he's both somewhat more gory and less at the same time.

While Stephen King's "It" is absorbing from the first paragraph, I found myself having to put too much effort into enjoying this book. While King beautifully develops his characters and makes the reader interested in the everyday lives of the children of the book, Rollo simply can't seem to match up. The parts that I read weren't SCARY per say, they were disturbing in a disgusting way. Somehow King has his "monster" horrendously kill a cute little boy and it isn't disgusting, but Rollo has his kill a baby and it IS disgusting. Don't ask me what the missing element is to Rollo's novel, because I can't put my finger on it.
I recommend Joe Hill's "Heart Shaped Box" instead. Excellent read, I guarantee that you will be creeped out by just reading the description.

Reminiscent of King's "The Body" and "It" and Malfi's "December Park", "Crimson" is a coming-of-age-type book about 4 young boys who come face to face with pure evil when they resurrect a supernatural creature by mistake in a small Canadian town. The boys are sure that the creature is the disembodied spirit of Old Jacob Harrison who killed his entire family decades earlier. What they find is far more than any evil spirit that they could image. As the creature gets further and further inside the minds of the boys, they soon realize that they are unable to fend the creature off.

Parents and friends are of no use because only the boys can see the creature. Hopelessness and despair follow the boys as they age into their teens. The will of the creature comes and goes as he plays with their minds and emotions.

Rollo, author of the outstanding, "Jigsaw Man" does a credible job ramping up the horror and suspense throughout the book as the boys battle for their survival against the seemingly invincible creature. The book is primarily plot driven because there are fewer characters than one would expect in a story such as this. Moments of pure horror do pop up at different times throughout the story as the plot lumbers to a rather unexpected ending. The book drags a little in spots, but did have enough plot twists in the last third to keep me turning pages.

While I didn't find this book as engaging as "Jigsaw Man", I will certainly put Rollo on my list of authors to read again in the future.

Crimson is a tough one to review for me. After reading Rollo's fantastic The Jigsaw Man, I couldn't wait to dive into this one. Out of all the great books that I read in 2014, Jigsaw Man was tied for my absolute favorite. The writing was crisp, the characters were three-dimensional and fully fleshed out, and Rollo made an unbelievable story completely believable. Jigsaw Man was also his second novel. Crimson was his first and it shows. Gord's fantastic writIng style is still there. But, you can tell he was still cutting his teeth. The characters didn't feel fully developed and the story had the feel of a puzzle that was put together with the wrong pieces and were made to fit even when they didn't. Don't get me wrong. There are still some great ideas explored in Crimson. Unfortunately, all of those ideas didn't make for a great, cohesive story. I'm going to chalk this up as Rollo learned many things between writing Crimson and Jigsaw Man. If the progression between #2 and #3 as it was for #1 and #2, then the third story of his should be lights out.

The cover of the book says in a review by Horror Web "Crimson is Stephen King's IT's superior in every possible way." They could not have been more WRONG. This book has a good story idea. I have read IT & also Boy's Life by Robert McCammon & this book in no way compares to either of them. I was very sorry because I was hoping to find a new great horror writer. Didn't happen! I didn't even get to page 100 before quitting. There was very little character development - just quick descriptions of each boy & a tiny bit about their backstory. Nothing else. I hate to write bad reviews but had to for this one. So sorry Mr. Rollo.

As a big fan of Jigsaw Man, I expected something more than what I got. I read the back and fell for the comparison to the book It, however, and that got me going. I figured G. Rollo to be someone that might be a nice craftsman in that regard and, honestly, I wanted a new It because of the impact that book had. The delivery was anything but what I expected, and I think that made me a little bit frustrated as I forced myself to go on.

I've read a lot of horror and I know when I am bonding or when I am being forced to stomach a character. Topping that part off was also the length of the book itself, which came in at a little less than 300 pages. Considering the book it sought to try and be like was over three times that size, it is easy to see how characters might fall short and how the character could also fall somewhat short as well.

When the bok came out it seemed to have a lot to offer. It seems seductive still, sounding really nice but not really coming across like you would want it to. If you feel that you might find something in it and this is wrong, you can always sample a little piece of it and see what everyone else sees. That said, I am giving this 2/5 stars and I rarely do that. I simply recall what the author is capable of doing and, well, this is not a great or even modest showing.

Sad. Really sad.
