    One thought on “Blue”

    1. This is another tearjerker but it's sweet, too. Emotions came too fast, there was insta-love and abrupt change in how a character felt about something major, but the love was adorable. I didn't like the beginning; it was too slow and kind of dull. But I stuck with it and by the second chapter the plot started moving along and we began to meet the characters. Oh, yes, characters. There were so many that I took notes because I wasn't sure if I would need to remember all these people. It turned out [...]

    2. A very good, suspenseful/thrilling read - especially the last 50 pages or so - edge-of-your-seat drama The first part of the novel is tough to get through with the introduction of so many characters and several pieces to the mystery toss around until all begins to come together. I will definately look for more by Russ Gregory

    3. ~* 3.5 Stars *~Couldn't Put It DownEventuallyOn a hot, Austin night, the crack of a single shot echoes through the city streets and a young man collapses to the gritty concrete, bleeding, writhing in paindying. His death is agonizingly slow. He was gay. And he is not the first.Over twenty years ago a killer hunted his prey along these same city streets. All were young gay men, all were gunned down with a single rifle shot. The killer was never found. And now he's hunting again.Matt Bell had been [...]

    4. So much beauty, so many poignant moments in this debut thriller! The complexity of the novel kept me thinking about the characters, their lives, their loves, their hurts long after I closed the cover. BLUE is a welcome addition to LGBT lit in particular and psychological thrillers in general. Can't wait for Gregory's next work. Read this book!

    5. Geez louise. What in the heck was up with the first part of this book? I never stop reading a book but boy was I tempted to put this one down. Thankfully I kept reading and the ship finally righted itself. And the only reason I kept with it was after reading others' reviews saying what I found to be 100% true. The last two-thirds of this book truly makes it worth slogging through the muddled beginning. But I have to wonder, what was the point? Certainly there are other ways of starting the book, [...]

    6. The second half of the book is much better, but it's a real struggle to get through the start as there are too many characters and not enough exposition to explain them or their relationships to each other. I did, however, like the tortured hero, Thatcher.

    7. This book proved a very slow start read for me; I think largely due to the huge number of characters being introduced (both in the past as well as the present plot timeline) in the first chapters. I got disorientated and impatient and abandoned the read for a while. Going back afterwards (once the MCs got sorted out in my mind from the plethora of secondary characters), things got progressively better and more interesting. However, the multi-shifting POVs in each chapter did not sit right with m [...]

    8. I completed BLUE three weeks ago, and the story is indelibly left in my brain, which in my mind is the sign of a talented writer and storyteller. The story revolves around a reporter interviewing a 103-year-old resident of a nursing home, who holds the secret as to why gay men are being stalked and killed on the streets of Austin, TX.Gregory not only brings the story to life with characters to whom he dedicates their own chapters, he brings these people to life. In their invidivual scenes, as th [...]

    9. I really liked this book but the beginning was a bit confusing. Too many characters were introduced without much reason as to why. I started getting confused as to who was talking and who wasn't - even though the chapters indicated who was supposed to be talking there would be other characters voices thrown in. Gregory seemed to pull it together about a third of the way in and the book took on a life of its own.Who was killing the gay men in Austin? Could it be the gorgeous and broody Thatcher o [...]

    10. I picked up this ebook because it was advertised as a gay romance thriller. However, my thrill diminished somewhat as I read the book.I honestly found the characters to be very 2 dimensional caricatures. None of them truly felt "real" and it was hard to connect or sympathize with any one individual. Even the antagonist felt contrived, rather than tragic. The concept for the villain and their motive was great, I'll definitely give the author that, but all of the characters really needed to be fle [...]

    11. A disappointingly routine mystery that fails to generate any real suspense until the final pages. Mr. Gregory withholds crucial information until the end, which generates a momentary shock but no suspense.The characters are one-dimensional at best, and the plot isn't gripping enough to make up for the other weaknesses. Here's hoping Mr. Gregory does better next time.

    12. Agree with the other reviewers, the beginning was tedious and confusing but the end was worth it. I will be looking forward to Russ' next book to see how his writing evolves and improves. A promising career I think.
