Publisher's Summary

Something is happening to the children of Morgantown... One by one, they are claimed by a strange illness that cannot be identified. Night after night, they are haunted by terrifying creatures that invade their dreams. Moment to moment, they dread the final hours of daylight. When the towering mountain called Thunder Rise casts its shadow over the town. When childhood innocence surrenders to primal fear. When evil reaches out-and into-their minds.
©1989 G. Wayne Miller (P)2013 David N. Wilson

Decent thriller, but dated and awkward.

What did you like best about Thunder Rise? What did you like least?

I did like the performance by Mr. Richards. He seemed to be able to accurately portray the characters he read, no matter how poorly written they were.

Would you ever listen to anything by G. Wayne Miller again?

No. I found his writing style awkward, portraying adults as having horribly immature thought processes, and portraying the children as having more grown-up thoughts and imaginations than they should. The only character that seemed 'real' was the protagonist, and that was an evil spirit. Another thing that put me off was how dated the book was. There is a difference between a book that becomes dated, and a book that holds true, even when set in a different time.

Have you listened to any of Joel Richards’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't heard any of Mr. Richard's other performances, but I look forward to doing so. His pacing was perfect, and portrayal of character was well done.

Did Thunder Rise inspire you to do anything?
