    Man of the Year

    Man of the Year is a novel by Caroline Louise Walker. I received an early copy of this story to review. I really enjoyed parts of this book. I found some parts maddening. "The Man of the Year" is the main character and mostly told from his point of view, but there are a few chapters that are voiced by others.

    Psychological Suspense at it's best.

    The outstanding, suspense novel, Man of the Year, catapults the reader into the dark, paranoid mind of Dr. Robert Hart (Bobby). Caroline Louise Walker writes in a sophisticated style that that lures the reader into the storyline, then adds masterfully developed, devious characters that make this debut novel a pleasure to read. Man of the Year is a slow burn that kept me wondering what the heck I was reading. Be warned there is little to no real action in this book, but something far better and more challenging to achieve, pure suspense. The author gets the reader deep into the inner workings of the mind of the main character, Bobby but also his wife Elizabeth and his son Jonah. The first part of the book told from Bobby’s point of view where Walker uses a series of internal monologs that exposes just what an egotistical, paranoid person he truly is, thus setting him down a path of self-destruction. Bobby’s paranoia has him seeing faults in the people he once loved unconditionally. Walker also gives the reader a glimpse into the minds of Elizabeth and Jonah. We get to know their innermost thoughts, secrets, and of course, the lies and they harbor. When Elizabeth suggests that Nick, Jonah’s best friend, spend the summer with them, this propels Bobby’s mind to imagine situations that may or may not be there. There are multiple twists and turns, lies, and hidden feelings from all the characters that explode into a domestic fray that has the ability to take down the whole family. The one thing that you can expect from this book is that everyone in this book is lying and has a hidden agenda. You will not know whom to believe or whom to trust. So my advice is to trust no one, assume everyone is lying, and expect the unexpected. I was utterly blindsided for most of the book, and the ending was phenomenal. I will be looking forward to reading more from this author. ***I kindly received this galley by way of NetGalley/publisher/author. I was not contacted, asked, or required to leave a review. I received no compensation, financial or otherwise. I have voluntarily read this book, and this review is my honest opinion .***

    Interesting

    Dr. Hart is a distinguished, important man in the Sag Harbor community. As he wins Man of the Year his life begins to fall apart. He sees things that aren’t as they seem, he hears things wrongly, and he acts on all of these things. I started this book expecting a thriller. It was not a fast start and I began to wonder when the story was going to pick up when the story was going to start moving. About 1/3 the way through it picked up. The characters started acting out, the storyline got moving, and I couldn’t stop reading. I liked that the majority of the book is told from Dr. Hart’s point of view. There are a few chapters mixed in told from the other characters that added just the right mix to the book. The ending is interesting. I couldn’t wait to see how it would all come together, I couldn’t wait to see how Dr. Hart and Mrs. Hart would find their happily ever after or if they would find it. I read the last page, closed the book, and thought that the ending wasn’t quite what I expected.

    Ok read

    This is a long labored, kind of “who done it”. I lost interest about half way through. The story line was good, but kept getting lost in the words. I found myself saying “get a move on” and had to make a real effort to finish. Ok read, just not for me.
