Through Library thing I was asked to provide my opinion on an ARC of Cemetery Club by JG Faherty, I'm not to familiar with Mr. Faherty's work so I gave it a try. The author writes in a style similar to King in that he exposes you to his characters warts and all. The story centers around four friends who share a secret that has one of them institutionalized, another so haunted by his nightmares he becomes an inconsolable drunk, another is moved away by his parents (no doubt to take him away from his hooligan friends) and the other, a poor girl from the bad side of town. Finds her solace in a man she steadily grows to hate. Twenty years go by and the friends come together to save the town from disaster and needless death. I really don't want to reveal any more than that.
All that being said, I have to say that I that I loved every bit of this book, I can easily see this in movie form. Mr. Faherty gets you so involved in the characters struggles, it turns into a real page turner to make sure no harm has come to the main characters
