The Man by the Sea (Jack Benton) Book Reviews
UnexpectedThe chapters are short, and I was just getting engrossed with the story when it took an unexpected turn.Score: 5/5
Great book!I read a lot. Like, a lot. And so many books have the same plot. They’re so predictable I can call them pretty well (I read mainly thrillers, psychological and love stories lol.) This one was different. It was interesting and kept me guessing. I really enjoyed reading it..Score: 5/5
A haunting thrillerA shivery tale of obsession and murder. Highly recommend!.Score: 5/5

The Man by the Sea brings you there!This story draws you in and is a true mystery throughout. As an avid reader of all genres, I love a good story that brings me with it and so appreciative of a better level of writing then so many so-called 'gripping' novels that devolve into gore and slash..Score: 5/5
Really enjoyedWhat a roller coaster! I couldn’t wait to find out how, what, where, why, and who! I kinda suspected but wasn’t sure till the end. Slow in spots but a great mystery..Score: 5/5
Interesting, but left much to be desiredFun read if you don’t think too much about the plot holes and random jumps in conversation and thought processes. The synopsis had a lot of potential and I believe characters could’ve been fleshed out more but I was left wondering if Slim had learned anything; I mean, he felt for Emma despite everything she did that was messed up, but not even fully explored or explained. The writing style was a pleasant surprise..Score: 2/5
Good bookTook me awhile to figure out who done it.Score: 4/5
Seaside mysteryThis was an interesting twisty story, partly due to the detective constant tippling, hard to keep a story straight when you are not!.Score: 4/5

The Man By The SeaA fascinating read! With so many twists and turns,it’s not too surprising that the ending is a situation never thought of..Score: 5/5
IntriguingI’m fighting Parkinson’s and read when I can to help with cognitive skills. What I like about this book is that it play out as a movie as I read it. It very draws you in right next to the main character..Score: 5/5
The Man by the SeaThough the story line was interesting and thought provoking the main character was wholly unlikable. Alcoholics are just not pitiable no matter how they got there. I can honestly say that the killer evaded me till the end. That doesn’t happen often to me. Most surprising and hard to put down despite my own issues. I may have to read more to see if Slim ever gets himself together. But then that would defeat the story line I guess..Score: 4/5

Unpredictable(Great to find an online book with very few typos for a change.) This book is spooky and the author keeps telling me it you guessing until the very last page. Slim is a likeable and reluctant alcoholic detective who sacrifices everything to solve a mystery. Well written and amusing. I will look for more from this author..Score: 5/5
