    This book should really have been exactly what I like but somehow for me it never quite gelled I became impatient half way through with the excess of everything endless somewhat odd metaphors, outrageous characters and silly plot lines The mystery was actually obvious and I had picked the truth of the story very early on Just my opinion here though as the book gets good reviews from other people.

    Let Sleeping Gods Lie is the fourth of Dianne s books I ve read, and I d have to say my least favourite It wasn t because the characters were bad, or the story uninteresting No, the issue I had was with the overuse of similes and metaphors Some of them were so bad I actually cringed when reading them Arms like burnt chicken wings, a face splitting like a can of beans it was a bit much Which is why this book has obtained my editing required shelving tag I think removing some of the ran Let Sleeping Gods Lie is the fourth of Dianne s books I ve read, and I d have to say my least favourite It wasn t because the characters were bad, or the story uninteresting No, the issue I had was with the overuse of similes and metaphors Some of them were so bad I actually cringed when reading them Arms like burnt chicken wings, a face splitting like a can of beans it was a bit much Which is why this book has obtained my editing required shelving tag I think removing some of the random details would make it crisper and a lot nicer to read and most certainly would bump up my rating to at least 4 stars.This aside, I loved the characters, even the bad ones I felt that they all played their parts really well The story flowed nicely and kept me interested I liked the variety of characters too, we weren t left with cookie cutter families, I liked the messed up family unit of the Landau s, I mean I wouldn t for a second want to meet them, but I liked the complexities of their family unit When you add to this story the questions around religion and beliefs, it just all came together in a gnarly mess that somehow just seemed to work A decent book if you can overlook the weird similes and metaphors, and by a fantastic Aussie author to boot

    I think I d like this bookmuch if there weren t so many metaphors I m not a big fan of metaphors, and this book had way too many for my personal taste And some of them didn t make much sense to me For example She negotiated the stairs quickly with her match thin legs, opened her arms like burnt chicken wings as if she were going to embrace him Why does it have to be burnt chicken wings And another Large eyes like grapes in cracked stone What does that mean Why would there be grape I think I d like this bookmuch if there weren t so many metaphors I m not a big fan of metaphors, and this book had way too many for my personal taste And some of them didn t make much sense to me For example She negotiated the stairs quickly with her match thin legs, opened her arms like burnt chicken wings as if she were going to embrace him Why does it have to be burnt chicken wings And another Large eyes like grapes in cracked stone What does that mean Why would there be grapes in cracked stone I liked the storyline itself It s about a woman and manone a stranger to the town and one not They re both dealing with a family of religious fanatics

    Dianne Gray s novel Let Sleeping Gods Lie fascinated me It first grabbed me with the best landscape descriptions I ve read in a long time The story takes place in Australia, specifically, Far North Queensland Spindly trees stretched high above, veiling the creek with a thick green canopy nurturing native orchids, staghorns and a congregation of screeching birds The description continues An old flame tree had fallen into the river Its limbs, once home to finches and swifts, had become sn Dianne Gray s novel Let Sleeping Gods Lie fascinated me It first grabbed me with the best landscape descriptions I ve read in a long time The story takes place in Australia, specifically, Far North Queensland Spindly trees stretched high above, veiling the creek with a thick green canopy nurturing native orchids, staghorns and a congregation of screeching birds The description continues An old flame tree had fallen into the river Its limbs, once home to finches and swifts, had become snags for perch and penny turtles Who wouldn t want to move into this territory for the duration of the book The book is a bit of a mystery, but also an exploration of the human heart within a culture and setting I found both exotic and familiar at the same time The main characters Nick and Ali are well drawn and unique Their antagonists are less complex, but sufficiently frightening read dangerous to keep up the level of suspense One of the ways Gray increases suspense is how she weaves together a few threads in short bursts in the latter portion of the book It really kept me on my toes, and although it sounds a clich , I couldn t put down the book Another strength of the book is also the only criticism I can make Gray s lyrical language filled with imagery and metaphor is gorgeous She really pushes the envelope, and that is the only way prose can rise like poetry off the page But occasionally the metaphors are pushed too far and could be pruned A small nit considering the beauty of the novel Although I finished the book a couple of weeks ago, I am still feeling its moody power I won t forget this book for a long time Nick, Ali, and Australia have become part of my life

    Wow That s all I can say The language and metaphors in this story stunned me Dianne Gray has a gift for description and showing normal, bland everyday scenes in new ways that make them come alive This story deals with a girl who is honoring her dead mother s last wishes to sprinkle her ashes on a hill she loved as a child But what Ali gets as she travels back to her mom s past, will change her whole future Great story with colorful characters that make Australia come to life.

    Intriguing characters, hypnotic prose, and a tightly woven plot kept this reader turning pages until the last was deliciously inhaled I rooted for Nick, Ali, and Col, but couldn t resist the temptations in their way, a family of religious fanatics willing to pull out all the stops Once again Dianne Gray spins another highly recommended tale.
