    BFF We all think we will have best friends for life, but what does that really look like Well, here is your chance to see Noah and Charlee know what it is like to have your back They are married, but not to each other They have been friends since childhood when they formed the Bigfoot Hunters club They have rules that they live by and roles to fulfill in their separate families And they have each other, the one person they know will never lie to them When life gets hard the Bigfoot Hunters find out what real friendship means But be forewarned, after you have read the first chapter, you won t want to put it down until you have finished

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.In Kate E Thompson s debut novel, Bigfoot Hunters Never Lie, Pastor Noah Cathcart struggles to find happiness while doing everything he believes God wants him to do I enjoyed the story, for the most part, but did have a few problems with the style, which I ll explain later Bigfoot Hunters is a typical mid life crisis story, despite it happening at a relatively early age for Noah He s thirty five with a young son and a beautiful, Pastor perfect wife, and stands to inherit the kingdom, so to speak, from his father the heavy handed evangelical head of the Rolling River Church Throughout the novel, author Thompson does a nice job of pulling the reader down into Noah s conflicted sense of self, trying to do what he believes is right against what his wife and father tell him God is calling him for Noah s desire to preach to and help the unfortunate through a message of Christ s love and compassion for all is at grave odds with his father, who preaches fire and brimstone, and his wife, Grace, who has no room in her heart for the dirty, drug addicted homeless.Every relationship he has outside of his father s and wife s plan for him pits him against the will of the Rolling River congregation His best friend, Charlee with whom he developed the Bigfoot Hunters code when they were children, which becomes Noah s guiding principles toward the end is either atheist or a non practicing Christian His brother Anthony is homosexual and wants Noah to marry him and his partner The various characters of his street ministry demand his time and attention and end up getting him in trouble with the law on than one occasion All of these conflicts continue to eat away at Noah and drive him and his wife apart throughout the story, which ultimately drives the novel to the climax Noah s eight year old son, Gabe, runs away one stormy morning because mom and dad are always fighting.Noah s struggles generally resonate true and are easily applicable to most people s lives He is a relatable character We ve all had to deal with well meaning family and friends constantly pulling us in the direction they want regardless of how we want to live our own lives His seeming complacency he barely ever puts up a fight masks a depression that is eating him up Bigfoot Hunters is definitely an engaging story, and Thompson takes us through the whole range of emotions Happiness when Noah is happy with his street ministry, sad when it all falls apart, frustrated that he can t catch a break from his own family who claim to be Christians Noah struggles with his faith far than you might think a Pastor should, yet he s the only one in his God fearing family actually trying to live by the Gospel All of these themes should resonate with any average person.I loved the relationship between Charlee and Noah Thompson seems to really understand how to write two best friends It s believable and satisfying Unfortunately, all of the other characters were a bit thin and predictable, and with them went the plot To be clear, it was a page turner sometimes and I liked it, but I never had any doubt as to how everything would play out That comes from the light character development One line of description of Noah s and Grace s marriage and I knew where things were going For example technically, this isn t a spoiler, but you ll figure it out Grace is on a committee where she has to have all day meetings and nights and weekends with a wealthy real estate mogul This is in chapter two, near the very beginning Can you guess what happens Really, though, the biggest problem I had with this novel was that it was written in first person present I wish this trend would stop It can be done, but out of the hands of a literary master it never brings the reader fully into the story One of the joys of reading is putting yourself in the shoes of the main character, or multiple characters when the point of view changes With the present tense it is impossible, because while the author says I am putting the dishes away, you re thinking, No, I am reading a book If you told me I put the dishes away yesterday, then I m a believer In this case, it sometimes made for choppy dialog, and often read like a draft The I thought about it, the I believed that every part would have been better in the past tense Better flow, better connection with the character.Another problem I think this style caused was some time flow problems Present tense sometimes doesn t lend an opening for descriptive narrative, and many times I had trouble figuring out when things were happening Things that I thought were at night were actually in the morning, and scene transitions that should have been the next day were several months later It was confusing Bigfoot Hunters Never Lie is a touching story, and I did enjoy it I think anybody that is torn between what they want and what others want from them will find something here that makes them root for the good guy While the writing style wasn t so enjoyable for me, the story itself kept me engaged enough that I can easily say, I liked it.

    Here s the thing that I ve found happens with me when I m reading a book that I m going to review for the site I think if you look hard enough, you can find something to be critical about in everything So for this book, for Bigfoot Hunters Never Lie by Kate Thompson, I found a couple things I could point out to critique There were a couple typos here and there, and I found that it was a little bit of a struggle occasionally to deliver exposition in a way that could be cited later Like, we mention a specific birthday where a certain thing happened, and then a couple of pages later cite that story for laughs But how else do you tell stories about your characters that they can reference later that give you some insight into their character It s better than I d be able to do it, I m sure So, I could find things to nitpick about if I wanted But the truth is that I wasn t really very interested in nitpicking this book Bigfoot Hunters Never Lie is a great novel about a man who is living life, and life can be a pretty dramatic experience if you really find yourself in the throes of it That s what Noah does he finds himself in the middle of a really, really tough year, and we get to take his path with him to find out what exactly a Pastor does when he finds himself struggling with his faith, his family, and with what he thinks is wrong and right.My favorite thing about this book is that Pastor Noah is at the forefront of it and religion is a huge part of his life, but I never felt like I was being preached at I m not a religious person in the least, but I really enjoyed watching how Noah navigated his struggle with what God wanted from him and what he wanted from himself, in addition to what his family and the community all expected from him I think it s an extraordinary feat to keep someone who isn t interested in religion intrigued in the lives of people who are so focused on it, but Kate Thompson did it flawlessly I felt hungry for this novel once I got into it I was dying to find out what was happening with everyone.Another of my favorite things was that I didn t really like any of the characters And I know that sounds like a negative thing, but I think for people, for all of us, when we re thrown into situations that bring out our struggles and our flaws, we aren t always likeable, and I felt that way about most of the characters here They do things that are not admirable and react in ways that aren t honorable and that s a true testament to writing a real person I know I certainly don t behave favorably all the time either, and especially when times are as trying as the experiences Noah and his comrades are experiencing in a world where profit is important than spreading God s word, and appearances are important than truly doing things that make your heart happy.Overall, I ll give Bigfoot Hunters Never Lie a solid 4.5 5 butterflies I recommend it to anyone who s interested in reading about, well Pretty much anything There s not a lot better than being able to be intrigued by another human s experience Amanda Scott

    Full disclosure the author is my mom The other reviews are accurate If you take the book s chapters like a journal, where the writer sometimes picks up the very next day, and sometimes weeks later, you will not be jarred by the scene changes I wouldn t say it is a bad narrative style, just that it is different and took a few chapters to get used to.What the author does very well is draw you into the story You want to know what is going to happen next I normally read books from Stephen King, George RR Martin, and the like, so the fact that this subject drew me in is a big credit to the writing You don t have to have grown up in a church going family to relate to the themes here I was very impressed with this first offering, and look forward to her next subject.
