Out Behind The Barn - John Boden and Chad Lutzke
Updated: Jan 7
This collaboration between John Boden and Chad Lutzke is a match made in heaven. Having read John’s “Jedi Summer” recently, and commenting early in my notes that he had a wonderful flowing narrative voice that reminded me of Chad Lutzke when I saw the collaboration it was an instant buy, and I couldn’t wait to dive in.
What can I say? The opening chapter is so well put together, straight away you are thrown into the bizarre world the characters inhabit, the mystery of what is happening engulfs you automatically, and the eminently readable voices of Chad and John soothe you into happy tranquility – you know you are going to be entertained, you know you are in the hands of masters of their art, and you have complete faith that the story is going to maintain its gripping narrative. It’s really like coming home. Kudos to both of you (the authors) that you had me from the first paragraph.
I can’t discuss the story because the mystery makes the book, and the book is woefully short at 100 pages, but each of those pages reads like a dream you never want to leave, and the book is over in the perfect amount of words and timing, you don’t feel cheated – this really is entertainment for the time you spend in it. It’s definitely one I am going to revisit, all of the characters are wonderfully fleshed out, the situation is fantastic, and the authors' voices are – well – outstanding.
One of those books you wished you hadn’t read so that you could read it for the first time all over again.
John Boden, Chad Lutzke, you continue to have a fan in me, and I can’t sing this books’ praises loudly enough.
Go buy this book.
