    Very dark, angst filled story.Robbie and Carlo are life and business partners They meet a young man and invite him into their home When the guest becomes too drunk to drive home they invite him to spend the night While they are sleeping the guest commits a violent act at their home.The ensuing story istrue to life docudrama than a mystery or thriller It made an impression..

    Peter Gadol s sobering novel, Silver Lake, is a profound meditation on long term relationships and a grim portrayal of one couple s instability in spite of their longevity.Carlo and Robbie met in college and have been together for twenty years Partners in business, as well as in life, their architectural company, Stein Voight, is showing signs of failure, and the underlying financial stress has carried over to their life at home in Silver La

    Too many pet peeves for me to enjoy this book at all From comma abuse, to run on sentences, to a false ending oh, please never do this , to misplaced words and phrases, to rambling descriptions, internal monologues, and side trips that had little to nothing to do with the main story, I couldn t stay lost in this tale The first rule of a good book in my opinion is suspending disbelief, and that simply wouldn t happen with Silver Lake.I must say, I do

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here If you like a straight forward thriller with likable characters, this is not the book for you I really didn t like the two main characters Robbie and Carlos at all They ve been together for 20 years, but one couldn t tell it from the way they behaved.Plus, the narrative was all over the place, moving back and forth in time, changing point of view, and telling several stories at

    This novel took me by surprise It had this ominous modern noir feel to it, while remaining decidedly literary I loved how Gadol really pulled the loose string on the protagonists relationship and allowed himself to pull it very slowly, so that the unraveling would be tense and gradual I picked up the book from my library s local fiction shelf, because it is set in the neighborhood in which I have lived for the past dozen years It added even an extra element to imag

    A meditation on what it means to fear loneliness, even in the comfort of a solid relationship What happens when our most loved one becomes our most mysterious I was often reminded of Kundera s The Unbearable Lightness of Being while reading this quiet, wintery book.

    What an odd book The main theme seemed to be that couples hide things from each other and those secrets sometimes come back to haunt them.


  8. Bob Redmond Bob Redmond says:

    Peter Gadol writes what he calls moral thrillers a lawyer is involved in a hit and run, for instance in his book THE LONG RAIN The lawyer is then called on to defend the wrongly accused What does he do In books reminiscent of THE TALENTED MR RIPLEY Patricia Highsmith or THE ICE STORM Rick Moody which is to say, precisely written and forcefully paced Gadol writes across genres of literary fiction and noir, making his novels mean something, but not at the expense of a good read.In SIL Peter

    Got this as a Christmas present Finished it by the time I went to sleep Christmas Day.A couple, Robbie Carlo, befriend a fellow gay man, Tom, who is scattered, interested in all sorts of things and nothing He plays tennis with Robbie, cooks dinner for the two of them, drinks a ton, and then when he is supposed to be spending the night in the guest room, hangs himself and commits suicide Was it really a suicide, or something else Carlo apparently has met Tom before, but where, and in what c Got th

    The most literary page turner or the page turningest literary novel I ve read in a long time Silver Lake is the story of two men who have been together for twenty years, most of which have been devoted to making a good life even better They have a house with a lake view, a semi successful architectural practice and their weekends are devoted to tennis and expensive cheese But while the core is not exactly rotten, there are definitely a few loose threads in the fabric of their relationship tha The most li
