    _The Silver Bough_ is one of my favorite books read in recent years It s the story of a small town attached to Scotland by a thin thread of land When a storm makes the only road to the town impassable, strange things start happening The town begins to slip into the mists of Faerie This is one of those books where describing the storyline itself is not enough Lisa Tuttle s description in this book is incrediblethe town takes on a life of its own like few authors can successfully do This _The Silver Bough_ is one of my favorite books read in recent years It s the story of a small town attached to Scotland by a thin thread of land When a storm makes the only road to the town impassable, strange things ...

    Much better than The Mysteries, but still not something I d really recommend to someone unless they were really in the mood for light and fluffy which isn t me, very often This read to me muchlike a romance down to the gushy description...

    I looked forward to reading this I loved the cover and found the blurb on the back interesting When I started reading I couldn t quite get into it and found it difficult to keep the characters apart There s this peninsula that used to be an island according to legend Maybe even Avalon Now it s called Appleton, although the legendary apple orchards are gone Ashley comes to visit her relatives and search for her roots, her grandmother ran away from Appleton Then there s a landslide and the I looked forward to reading this I loved the cover and found the blurb on the back interesting When I started reading I couldn t quite get into it and found it difficult to keep the characters apart There s this peninsula that used to be an island according to legend Maybe even Avalon Now it s called Appleton, although the legendary apple orchards are gone Ashley comes to visit her relatives and search for her roots, her grandmother ran away from Appleton Then there s a landslide and the town becomes isolated Strange things begin to happen Phones and internet no longer work As the tension builds, you d think something interesting would eventually happen I waited in vain There is a twist at the end which left me perplexed, perhaps because I skimmed a bit too much during the last hundred pages Final judgement this is really boring There is only one fascinating scene in this book and that involves very old, translucent great grann...

    If you are looking for autumnal comfort reading with a magic sheen look no further Tuttle s charming tale of an enchanted Scottish town the invented near island of Appleton has a strong sense of place, some distinctive characters, and a clever blend of Celtic mythology and apple folklore Tuttle slowly builds up a painstaking level of detail in the town s idiosyncracies architectural, topographical and human thus establishing some verisimillitude, before the magic starts ...

    A slow burner of a novel, set on a peninsula at the Scottish coast One by one, a number of characters are drawn there, each seemingly driven by loss of some sort Except the librarian Then, this island of apples seems to drift into amythical state, with fairy tales and myths of Avalon just beneath the surface.The myth bits sound like just the sort of thing I d love, but sadly the novel feels quite flat Each character gets an introduction, and it takes a very long time before the story m A slow burner of a novel, set on a peninsula at the Scottish coast One by one, a number of characters are drawn there, each seemingly driven by loss of some sort Except the librarian Then, this island of apples seems to drift into amythical state, with fairy tales and myths of Avalon just beneath the surface.The myth bits sound like just the sort of thing I d love, but sadly the novel feels quite flat Each character gets an introduction, and it takes a very long time before the story moves in any discernible direction Most of the characters are sadly not very interesting Many mope All the women get stabs of lust around specific male characters All the way to the end, the chapters are interspersed with supposedly academic texts and fragments...

    This is an interesting novel and an interesting idea However I found it difficult to read in places because it seemed to have an identity crisis.I wouldn t call it magic realism because of the fairy myth legend aspect I also found the sex references just weird Every female character all American instantly fall in lust All the Scottish male characters are a bit loopy and it s only the male incomers that have sex appeal An awful lot happens to 3 women who are in many ways so alike that I fo This is an interesting novel and an interesting idea However I found it difficult to read in places because it seemed to have an identity crisis.I wouldn t call it magic realism because of the fairy myth legend aspect ...

    This is a beautiful read.This story starts out as if it s a contemporary tale, but slowlyandmagical elements appear, until at one point I was just as creeped out as one of the lead characters by the strange things that happened.The story switches between several viewpoint characters, and I liked most of them The one character I couldn t relate with was Ashley, she was too self centered and hostile at times I think Nell was my favorite character Sh...

    This is the book that got me out of my month long fiction slump, and I am full of affection for it.It isn t really anything new, but it s a lovely, cozy warm book, with occasional eerie moments and a deft handling of folklore Three very different American women college student Ashley, middle aged librarian Kathleen, and young widow Nell, are drawn to the small Scottish village of Appleton, each seeking escape from a personal loss Appleton is rich...
