"In a lonely cottage overlooking the windswept Maine coast, Wilder Harlow begins the last book he will ever write. It is the story of a sun-drenched summer of his youth, and of the killer that stalked the small New England town. And of the terrible tragedy that forever bonded him with his friends Nat and Harper in unknowable ways. Decades later, Wilder returns to the town in an attempt to recount that summer's events in his memoirs. But as he writes, Wilder begins to fear his grip on the truth is fading ... and that the book may be writing itself."--… (més)

Like all of Ward's work, it's a Lot. But what lands, lands hard. Totally worth a look if almost overly metatextual queer psychodrama is something of interest. ( )

Another mind bender by Ward, although for some reason, I liked it less than previous books--perhaps the magical aspect of the plot didn't quite work for me. Though when I got to the end, and realized how I had been tricked, I wanted to reread it right away. Great characters, very evocative setting, nice insights into the act of writing. ( )

Thank you Netgalley for the ARC!!

Wow, what a trip. The back and forth and changing timelines and perspectives, what's real what's fiction, I'm going to need more time to fully digest this story, but I was totally hooked! ( )

I had a really hard time with this book. It jumped around so much, I found I was lost a lot of the time. At the end of the book, I thought to myself, "what did I just read?!" I was engrossed in it at first, but then right away there was a climax in the action, and I thought it was done. Unfortunately, it dragged on longer. I just couldn't get into it after that. I would write a synopsis of it, but I can't. I really have no idea how to. I'm just glad I'm done with it. ( )

After the death of Wilder's Uncle Vernon, his family decides to use Vernon's cabin on the shore of Maine's Whistler Bay for a much needed summer vacation. Wilder decides that he will make friends and maybe even find a girlfriend this summer. He quickly finds friends in local teens, Nat and summer resident, Harper. The group quickly becomes enamored with the local lore of drownings and the Dagger Man of Whistler Bay. However, the fantasy soon becomes too real as Wilder, Nat and Harper find the victims and figure out that the perpetrator is someone close to them. Still dealing with the impacts from that summer, Wilder sets off to college in Pennsylvania. Suffering from panic attacks, Wilder finds a friend in Sky, who comforts Wilder and has a special interest in his trauma. Years later, after Wilder attempts to put together his summer at Whistler Bay into a memoir, Sky publishes Looking Glass Sound, a bestseller based on Wilder's memories. Wilder makes his way back to Whistler Bay in order to confront his memories and set the record straight.

Looking Glass Sound is a story within a story within a story that bends, stretches and tests the limits of what you believe is reality. The three stories told in succession create an underlying current of unknowing, unease and suspense. With each of the characters warping slightly in each of the story retellings, I wasn't quite sure of who everyone truly was and it seemed like everyone was an unreliable narrator. Everyone's story seemed like an atonement piece to try to rewrite their past with small bits of their true selves coming through. While it seemed like the main character should have been Wilder, I think the real focus of the story was the first victim of the Dagger Man, Rebecca. I thought it was really interesting that Wilder interacted with the Dagger Man after he was caught, it was insightful to see the thought process of a murderer and how the meeting affected Wilder. With many secrets, twists and unknowns, Looking Glass Sound is a unique horror experience.

This book was received for free in return for an honest review. ( )

I'm looking at myself in the bathroom mirror and thinking about love, because I plan on falling in love this summer. I don't know how or with whom. Outside, the city is a hot tarry mess. There must be someone in New York who ... I wish I wasn't so weird-looking. I'm not even asking to be loved back just to know what it feels like. I make a face in the mirror, pulling my power lip all the way down so the inside shows on the outside. Then I pull my lower eyelids down so they glare red. -The Dagger Man of Whistler Bay, From the unpublished memoir by Wilder Harlow, June 1989
