Reader ´ On the Third Day ✓ David Niall Wilson

E the miracle or curse gets out of hand and before they are faced with the uestion of what happenson the third da As I sat for a while pondering what I was going to write here I came to a bit of an odd realization I kinda like this book but I really have no idea whyThe tale about the investigation into what happened to a young pastor during Easter Mass is an interesting one I had seen this book to described as religious themed horrorbut I don't know if that moniker really fits While the events that happen could be called horrific the tone of the book keeps it from feeling like a horror novel Much of the story is about the nature of faith and miracles and while the miracles that appear in the story all seem to relate to the blood they are approached in such a way that keeps them from seeming horrificThe thing that carried the book for me where the characters All of them seemed believable which helped to the ground the storyWhile I enjoyed the story it was not perfect A couple of side plots and characters are introduced but just kinda fade away without impacting the plot or the main characters in any real way I also found the ending of the story to be for lack of a better word unsatisfactory I hesitate to call it bad but too many threads were left hanging for my tastes

On the Third DayWhat ensues is a race to find the truth behind what's happening at the Cathedral of San Valencez by the sea befor I am fairly new to fiction and don't fully understand how to choose books based on writing styles So I chose to read something from an author I knowknew personally David Wilson and I were stationed aboard the USS Guadalcanal in the late 80s Back then he was still a budding author but had written and published many short stories He even wrote one about me while we floated around on the Mediterranean Sea for 6 months I seem to have lost my copy of that manuscript and subseuently lost touch with David Then through the magic of Facebook we reconnected via an online running group think 5Ks Having not remembered much about his writing style but recollecting uite a bit about him personally including his chess game I decided to read one of his popular books “One The Third Day” I reads uickly which I appreciate I didn't need to count pages – something I tend to do The chapters are short and numerous which provided many opportunities to step away when necessary The backdrop for the story is Catholic Mass If you have not attended many masses then some of the story may be lost on you Fortunately I've attended a few and that experience assisted me throughout Maybe I'll read another of his works later this year Maybe he still has a copy of my short story laying around
