It was hard putting this book down and I was always ready to pick it back up. An OK book, but Pyper tries too hard to be literary and poetic, with limited success. I still had a hard time with character development – many of them were just completely without redeeming qualities or purpose.
It is the story of Miles Mc Ewan, a man scarred and troubled by his past who has found refuge in this remote region as a fire fighter. Dream Theater Balances Consistency and Excitement xummary ‘Distance Over Time’ Dream Theater’s Distance Over Time is at its strongest when it feels improvised and energetic—not overly-planned, but rather like the gang holed up in a studio and decided to lay down some tracks.
Original concept and nice storyline, good characters. I may have enjoyed it more in the winter but ughhhh Dream Theater’s Distance Over Time is at its strongest when it feels improvised and energetic—not overly-planned, but rather like the gang holed up in a studio and decided to lay down some tracks.
He has never practised law. What follows is a tale of a fire with a mind of its own, a psychopath with a grudge, a hunting trip gone wrong, and a tragedy-prone bear. As the fire starts to smoulder, Alex appears with a daughter whom Miles has never met, while a hunting party heads out to bag a grizzly bear. This is a fine book for readers looking for something different from Connelly and his innumerable progeny.

Tthe he bends to his knees, cups his hands on the ground, and starts another. Even the grizzle bear is given human characteristics.
This is his best so far — Canadian, too! Elsewhere a killer is going about his work, quietly and ruthlessly. Like a lot of only children, I turned to the nerdier pursuits of books seasno writing and The plot was sluggish when it should of had some suspense to it!
Now seaspn called Pyper “a star because he writes so spectacularly” and The Daily Mail called the novel a “stunningly crafted, intelligent and moving horror story”. The Wildfire Season is a very complex psychological thriller, one with a touch of mystic and one with a lasting impression. Feb 06, Amy rated it did not like it.

Book review: Andrew Pyper’s *The Wildfire Season*
Alex and her daughter, Rachel, intrude, Alex on a righteous mission after five years of searching. I did not like the point of view of the bear at all and feel it could have been written differently and without personifying her.
Twenty years in the making, “Lincoln” solidifies how well Damien Jurado can still captivate his audience with no added frills. As the survivors of the hunting party are picked off one by one and fire rages through the mountains, Miles embarks on a desperate rescue mission, driven by love for a daughter who, until this dangerous summer, had been a perfect stranger.
