The Electric by Andrew D. Barker, a short review
The Electic is a great book. Most of you know of my love of action adventures and violent thrillers. I love reading them, and I certainly enjoy publishing them. So when I met Andrew last year on a photo shoot with his lovely wife, it was great to meet someone who’d moved in other genres. I learnt of his love of movies and of things that go bump in the night. Plus, he was a fellow author working on his first novel.
It was then, over a beer in Paris, that we delved into his passion for the movie business. It’s no surprise then that “The Electric” has a strong movie theme, with ghosts from the silver screen, all underlying his knowledge and love of the topic.
What I wasn’t prepared for, was the great story about three teenagers (the main characters) who visit an old abandoned movie theatre in the woods.
It’s a story of ghostly nostalgia which brought back great memories of my childhood. All the angst of teenage crushes, exploring decaying buildings and wondering what I should do with my life, flooded back. The novel is perfectly paced and keeps you engaged with the characters who grow as the story develops and it has a wonderful ending.
Where you can get The Electric
I highly recommend this book for a great read. The Electric on Amazon.
