Blacklands Characters Î PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Writing Steven has a flash of inspiration Careful to hide his identity he secretly pens a letter to Avery in jail asking for help in finding the body of WP William Billy Peters So begins a dangerous cat and mouse game Just as Steven tries to use Avery to pinpoint the gravesite so Avery misdirects and teases his mysterious correspondent in order to relive his heinous crimes And when Avery finally realizes that the letters he’s receiving are from a twelve year old boy suddenly his life has purpose too Although his is far dangerous. I was actually uite disappointed with Blacklands I thought that it was a good story but was very short and this could have been the reason that it didn t involve me as much as I felt that it should have there was just way too much missingIn the blurb Belinda Bauer says that she wrote the book as she was moved by the story of a mother whose child had been murdered many years before and she was curious about how that kind of event would affect a family long termhowever that is exactly what I believe was missing I felt that the mother and grandmother were really weak characters that I had no empathy for at all even though I felt some amount of guilt as I knew that I SHOULD feel it They just didn t seem real to me at all they were very one dimensional The only reason they even seemed to have one dimension was because of their relationship with StevenSteven felt like a real 12 year old boy and I did care about him Uncle Jude s character was also appealing but that was probably just because of the change in Steven when he was aroundStrangely I also didn t feel much hatred towards Avery he felt a bit of a cartoon villain to me rather than a paedophile serial child killerAlso although the story is set in recent years the idea of the family being oh so very poor makes it feel like it s been set in the 70s and for some reason just doesn t ring trueHowever it was an entertaining enough easy to read filler book I can actually see it as making a fantastic film In the UK we can make brilliant gritty dramas making characters very very real with a host of fantastic actors that can make bleak tales SO amazing anything with Paddy Considine for example and we re great for gritty film noir child actors I d certainly watch it and I think an adaptation would really bring the story to life and make it believable no matter how uncomfortable the subject matter may be

Blacklands Characters Î PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook A taut and chillingly atmospheric debut that signals the arrival of a bright new voice in psychological suspense and a brilliant analysis of an exceedingly twisted mind Chicago Tribune Eighteen years ago Billy Peters disappeared Everyone in town believes Billy was murdered after all serial killer Arnold Avery later admitted killing six other children and burying them on the same desolate moor that surrounds their small English village Only Billy’s mother is convinced he is alive She still stands lonely guard at the front window o. Posted to The Literary Lawyerca A Chilling Story of Innocence vs Evil 35 Stars This marks the third book I have read by Belinda Bauer A few things have become abundantly clear She is very skilled at writing young and innocent characters Blacklands is no exception Her novels are coming of age stories wrapped in violence and the loss of innocence Although this novel receives my lowest mark to date it is still an exceptional novel and confirms her status a new favorite author Plot summary Steven is young man with a strange and slightly disturbing pastime Eighteen years previous and before he was born his uncle Billy a child himself went missing At that time many kids had gone missing and Arnold Avery a notorious serial killer admitted to many of their disappearances Billy s disappearance was never solved As it was always believed that Avery had taken Billy young Stephen spends his free time digging holes in the area where Avery had buried the bodies Stephen believes that if he can find the remains of his long missing uncle that the scars his family carries around will begin to heal The story takes and unexpected turn when Stephen begins a series of correspondence with the jailed killer In his uest to solve the mystery Stephen learns lessons about family love friendship and fear The Good I really do enjoy the young characters that Belinda Bauer creates She has a keen sense of the mind of the young and it is intriguing to see how she uses the innocent and often flawed thought processes of her characters Her stories would not work with adult characters at the centre No one would believe a grown man without mental illness would spend his days digging for a dead body yet it is utterly believable when it is a childThe reader must know in advance that a child protagonist does not mean the story is childish This is most definitely not for children The antagonist is a dark and disturbing character He is a paedophile who has murdered a significant number of young boys Unlike her later novels Bauer also delves into the mind of the killer and let me tell you the thought process of a person like Avery is not at all pleasing The Bad Having read Rubbernecker and The Facts of Life and Death I found myself comparing this to her recent works It is likely that had I read this one before the other two mentioned I would have given Blacklands a higher rating As a first novel this is an exceptional effortAs with the other two book of hers which I have read this is a character novel It is the characters of Avery and Stephen that are the focus of the story and their thought processes their actions and the reasoning behind their decisions that make the story My major complaint is that the characters were less developed than her later novels It may be that the focus on two points of view in this novel detracted from the overall developmentStephen often came across as rather flat While I think I understood his motivation for wandering the land and digging holes I did not feel that it was fully developed It seems that all of my recent reads have been character novels and I fell this is a bit lacking overall Final Thoughts It may be that I am being a bit hard on the author given my enjoyment of her most recent work In fairness I would expect to see improvement in later novels Overall I did enjoy this story It was eual parts disturbing and intriguing While at times Stephen was flat Avery was always creepy and disturbing I think that Blacklands is best enjoyed before Bauer s later offerings This novel displays enough of her skill for the reader to enjoy the story and her later novels will allow you to enjoy her maturity as a writer Content Advisories It is difficult to find commentary on the sexviolencelanguage content of book if you are interested I make an effort to give you the information so you can make an informed decision before reading Disclaimer I do not take note or count the occurrences of adult language as I read I am simply giving approximationsScale 1 Lowest 5 Highest Sex 2 There is a flashback in which Avery exposes himself to a child The subtext to the story is that Avery sexually assaulted young boys That said it is only inferred from the story and there is nothing explicit Some readers will find the inference to be disturbing but there is no graphic content Language 3 As in most of Bauer s novels the young characters use age appropriate language On a few occasions the characters use the f word and there is some low usage of mild obscenities Violence 25 Violence is a backdrop for the story There is a series of child murders but they are not discussed in any detail The disturbing part is the fact that Avery continues to think back on the events as it bring him pleasure There is one scene of violence that is mildly graphic but moderately disturbing
