    Well done, CJ Tudor!

    Excellent, suspenseful storytelling! The weaving of the events from 20 years prior and the present was very well done.

    Captivating Thriller

    THE CHALK MAN is a captivating thriller. With diverse characters, an interesting plot, and plenty of twists and turns, the story grabbed my attention from the very beginning and didn't let go until the final, surprising end. A worthy read for suspense fans. Disclosure: I won a free copy of this book in a giveaway.

    Couldn't put it down!

    I loved this book! Once I started reading this book, I didn't want to put it down. I ended up reading the whole book cover to cover in a single evening. This was a pretty fast paced novel that kept me guessing. I may have figured a few things out but there were a whole lot of things that really surprised me. I was truly impressed by this thriller. This book is told in two timelines, 2016 and 1986, so we get to see Eddie and his friends both as children and adults. Both of the timelines worked together to tell the story and I really enjoyed both of the equally. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough as I was incredibly eager to know what had happened when they were kids and what was happening to them in their adult life. I thought that the opening pages were incredibly strong and set the stage for the novel. I wanted to know how that body ended up where we see it at the start of the novel and needed to know its identity. When everything was eventually revealed, I found it to be a somewhat surprising and satisfying conclusion. I thought that the characters were well developed. The story is told from Eddie's point of view so we see everything from his own perspective. There are things that the boys do that made me cringe a bit but I thought that they all felt very realistic. This group of boys go through a lot together and it was interesting to see how some of those things impacted their relationship with each other over the years. I would highly recommend this book to thriller fans. I found this to be a really exciting read that kept me guessing. I am really impressed by that fact that this is C.J. Tudor's debut novel. I will be eagerly waiting for more books from this new author. I received an advance reader copy of this book from Crown Publishing Group via First to Read and Blogging for Books.

    Reminds me of early Stephen King!

    I really enjoyed this book because it was so reminiscent of Stand by Me and It by Stephen King, and those are a couple of my favorite stories by him. And although there are a lot of parallels between The Chalk Man and those two books, C.J. Tudor still puts her own twist on this novel. This was a great coming of age story that also shows the results of the children’s actions twenty years later. Tudor had me wondering for awhile if this was an unreliable narrator situation, and I was happy to find out it wasn’t. Tudor leaves lots of clues hanging around if you pay attention, but even with all the clues I didn’t see all the different threads and to where they were leading. I really enjoyed the ending and how it all came together and you realize everyone is twisted or has a secret. And the very ending with Eddie put a little smile on my face. His upcoming situation is horrific, but the story cycle will continue.
