    One thought on “Morning Ran Red”

    1. Morning Ran Red is extremely turbulent. There were points where I felt like this book was a 1 to 2 stars and other points where I was loving this book. As some other reviewers have commented, there are absolutely plot twists and surprises that seem forced throughout the novel, most notably in the first half. Some of the obscure ones were corny, like one of an old, cheesy soup opera's "dun-dun-dun" moments. You just have to push through it honestly, and it does indeed get better after most of the [...]

    2. I picked this book as one of two choices for a category in a reading challenge. I'm abandoning it because it's terrible. While Truman Capote's In Cold Blood is reputed (I haven't gotten to it yet) to be a great example of a novelization of a crime, this book is akin to trawling the dregs of a fanfic community. Every character is the worst version of themselves, and not because they were inherently bad people, but because that was the only thing Mr Bowman wanted to write about. It felt like the a [...]

    3. Mostly dumb. It did not need the Villisca murders as a jumping off point. Were it not so poorly written with a ridiculous plot and cast of characters it could be its own story. Convoluted with forced twists and plot points, the book is in desperate need of a good editor and proofreader.

    4. Interesting fantasy about the Villisca Axe Murders. I have been fascinated by the actual, unsolved murders for years. I was looking forward to reading this fictionalized account of what could have happened. The actual description of the murders was well written. The author was able to bring forth a vivid description of them that makes it difficult to forget. I felt like the author was trying to hard to make me believe the story. I was left feeling the ending was a forced wrap up so I was not sat [...]

    5. While the story is interesting and I saw it through to the end (having family in the area of Villisca, I was very interested in reading this story), I found the abundant typos very distracting. I read this on my kindle and am hopeful that the printed version has less. I'm not sure if this book was ever edited. It looks like someone took a hand written copy and then was unable to read certain words and made their best guess. Other typos made no sense at all including the number 1 in the middle of [...]

    6. I am quite intrigued by this 98 year old unsolved crime, and I had hoped this was going to be a nonfiction book. Initially I was bummed it was fiction, but I'm happy I read it. It's a pretty good book.

    7. So disappointed. Stephen Bowman took the true crime, changed names, the town name. The book was disjointed. There were so many typos/misspellings, it distracted from reading it. Would never recommend to anyone.

    8. I liked this book overall, but I was slightly disappointed. From the synopsis, I got that it would be more fact-based, and instead it was a completely fictional account of the real events. There's not really anything wrong with the book, just wasn't what I expected.

    9. For some reason I can't recall now, I read about the murders in Villisca online and became interested in them.

    10. Good read, but I couldn't help thinking the whole time that it was a fictional account of a true story, the Villisca axe murders. The ending left me feeling unsatisfied.
