After much reflection on this story I have come to one conclusion I am conflictedTerribly conflicted I m still thinking about this story But that s a good thing There s nothing worse than reading something spending your time getting to know characters and a storyline and when it s all over and you ve put it down you ve forgotten it That cannot happen with Just Past the Trees What I loved about this story was the narrative The narrator draws you in from the very beginning with his casual and often witty take on life and the people around him This is the type of narrative that I have only seen done this well in a handful of books all of them by best selling Big Six authors In this vein Mr Ratliff could easily be among them EasilyWhen I started this story I had no idea what I was in for and was looking forward to the journey Fresh engrossing and compelling it moved uickly and when it was all over I had to sit back look at my e reader and go What Not what I had expected given the path I was forced to takeMr Ratliff s voice is far beyond this simple tale and that s what I found disappointing Don t get me wrong this is not a negative nor a criticism of the author In fact it s the opposite What I wanted was for this voice to take me into a complex storyline and lead me through page after page of this artfully crafted narrative only to end up in a satisfying thrilling read But that s not what this story is about And it speaks to the talent of Mr Ratliff that he made me want that Made me want a plot that would hold its own against the power of the narrator s voice This is not a fault of the author This is his brillianceThis story is about the narrative the journey of thought inside the mind of the main character And what was written was for lack of better words really good For me the last third of the story where things unfold seemed to be just a foil for the author to bring things to a close Another reader may disagree perhaps the author himself but this is what I took away from the storyI flipped pages with ease absorbed into the voice of the main character A voice that was vivid and clear and reminded me of the first person narratives of Greg Iles in Blood Memory and Dead Sleep Engaging and gripping I wanted I wanted of Mr Ratliff s perceptions and I wanted them entwined deeply into a story that was much longer and detailed This is the kind of voice that could make any genre into a great readMy conflictions are my own and should in no way be interpreted as negative The only issue I had was that the overall story needed a tighter edit There were one or two grammatical mistakes that actually jarred me out of reading because of the obvious error However that will not affect my rating simply because what I loved outweighs them by a mile Had it been any other story the rating would have suffered Another testament to Mr RatliffShould at any time in the future Mr Ratliff decide to pen a tale that is both longer and complex you can be sure it will be at the top of my reading list I suggest you put it on yours In the meantime grab up your copy of Just Past the Trees and congratulate yourself You ve just discovered an author you will be following for years to come

Just Beyond the Trees is the story of a lawn moweremployed gopher with larger aspirations who one days stumbles upon a horrific tragedy From there we get a story of two young men bonding trying to make sense of their present circumstance and their futures The story is filled with relatable characters such as the religious prude boss uinn The other co workers are well done too as their dialogue is easily compared to normal everyday conversations Best of all is the imagery and the one lines Prominent example include the initial description of the setting which is portrayed with total clarity without taking too much away from the story nor boring the reader Some turns of phrase that struck a cord with me rather for their humor or ability to create tension include perpetual motion through redundancy and caused my heart to leap into my mouth I could practically feel its beat on the back of my tongueWhile I did have flaws I mentioned when I read a previous book by Ratliff this time I have none The flaw I mentioned in the other book I read by him was in regard to redundancy of certain phrases but that certain wasn t a problem here Each emotion experienced by the main character is fresh and described in a way but witty way This story is a pleasurable although at times suspenseful read that I would recommend to anyone

This story has been uite enjoyable to read I don t really read horror stories but I liked this one uite a lot Why Because you have the elements of horror but you don t actually see them straight away There is nothing gory or too bloody The prose is excellent and the story flows so easily that hooks you almost immediately It is a very clever and witty story about urban legends writing and publishing that won t disappoint you However I would have loved it to be a bit longer to see things developed a bit further I really recommend it
