The Guide by Peter Heller is an exceptional literary thriller written masterfully. With regards to characterization, Peter Heller keeps it straightforward and trust you to feel the emotions between the lines. But, when it comes to the natural world at large. You are getting the sort of lavish, sensual portrayals that makes you feel. It makes you feel as if you’re in the middle of a river fly-fishing yourself. Feel like you are breathing in the mountain air and watching leaves fall into the water.
Jack chooses to put a hold on from working on his dad’s farm and accepts a short term seasonal work as a fishing guide at Kingfisher Lodge in Colorado. The hotel is for the privileged where visitors pay a high premium to fish along the immaculate river nicknamed “Billionaire’s Mile.” Jack’s expectation is that directing visitors in tracking down the best trout fishing possible will assist him with recover from awful events in his past. Once at the hotel, he realizes there are an abundance of rules, that the limits of where visitors are permitted to fish is strict, with one end monitored by an insane elderly person with a gun and the other by a pack of gatekeeper dogs, and he sees cameras all over. Jack is allocated to direct Allison K., a notable singer, for seven days of fishing.
Jack and Allison rapidly form a bond while fishing and soon after share their doubts that things are not as they appear. A significant number of the visitors don’t fish, but for what reason would they have a bandage on their hands following a spa day? While they are fishing and a shout is heard in the middle of the night, both Jack and Allison are dubious that something different is going on at the hotel and at the adjoining property.
The Guide by Peter Heller is a fast moving novel and the writer makes the two of his principal characters real and engaging. The book will keep you turning the pages late at night. I completely enjoyed the story and I’m so happy I read it. This is particularly recommended to any individual who likes reading about outsiders. It will make you feel like gathering your bags and getting back country! This writer knows how to write and it is so brilliant to read the work of somebody who chooses his words so cautiously.
