One of our fantastic readers recently recommended a book to me, The Pack by Jason Starr, and after checking it out on Amazon , I’m definitely intrigued. While it’s not usually the type of book I go for, it does sound like it could be a good read. Check out the plot description below and let me know what you think, and of course, if you have already read the book, feel free to share your thoughts on it.
‘When Simon Burns is fired from his job without warning, he takes on the role of stay-at-home dad for his three-year-old son. But his reluctance pushes his already strained marriage to the limit. In the nestled playgrounds of the Upper West Side, Simon harbors a simmering rage at his boss’s betrayal.
Things take a turn when he meets a tight-knit trio of dads at the playground. They are different from other men Simon has met, stronger and more confident, more at ease with the darker side of life- and soon Simon is lured into their mix. But after a guys’ night out gets frighteningly out of hand, Simon feels himself sliding into a new nightmarish reality.
As he experiences disturbing changes in his body and his perceptions, he starts to suspect that when the guys welcomed him to their “pack,” they were talking about much more than male bonding. And as he falls prey to his basest instincts, Simon must accept that werewolves exist if he is to turn the tides of his fortune…”
On top of being one of our reader’s picks, this book also has incredible ratings from others. Library Journal says, “Crime writer Starr succeeds in keeping readers on the edge of their seats….A great read; recommended for any paranormal suspense fan.”
It has definitely earned a lot of praise, but is it worth a read? What do you guys think?
