Bearskin Reviews

  • Suzanne

    This was an awesome read. I live in Virginia so I had the added bonus that a good part of the book takes place there. I have had an odd fascination with bears. I actually self research interaction between bears and humans in my spare time because they fascinate me (I’m a research psychologist so I like to do research even in my spare time). So the bear aspect of the book was sad to read about (the hunting dogs also) but the different plots going on in Rice’s life really make this book. It was an ...more

    This was a lot more fun than I thought it would be - I picked it up just because it was available and I hadn’t reached my card limit at the library. It’s a debut which makes it even more impressive. It’s not easy to juggle the cartel, bear poachers, hostile neighbors, old growth forest that is decidedly creepy, feds running a sting operation, sleep deprived hallucinations that might be aided by suspect mushrooms handed by a mushroom picker who may or may not be a figment of said hallucinations, ...more

    This is a terrific debut thriller set in Virginia Appalachia. Rugged, ecological and well-written.

  • B.A. Brock

    Oof. That was a good book. I would have skipped my day job for that one, if I wasn’t so poor.

    A mix between Thoreau and Nevada Barr, ‘Bearskin’ was equally surreal and stone-cold present in the moment. In fact, I’m still not sure if our protagonist has a few screws loose or not. I’m thinking so.

    Rice was relatable, despite his toxic masculinity and stupidity (see toxic masculinity for source of said stupidity). I liked that he was half shaman and scientist, a source of his irreconcilable self. I

    The world around me disappeared as I read this book. I read roughly the first 20% on a Friday night and finished it in Saturday, primarily on my back patio on a beautiful summer day. Normally when I'm sitting out there, birds and squirrels won't come anywhere near me and yet I would occasionally look up, somewhat disoriented, and see them very close (at which point they'd run/fly away). I think they could tell I was far away (in a forest in western Virginia). So needless to say, Bearskin really ...more

    DNF at 35% Writing is good just having trouble connecting.

  • Krissy Neddo

    Reminds me of CJ Box and Joseph Heywood books and Nick Petrie's Burning Bright. The border crossing chapters remind me of Tricia Field's Josie Grey series. Not an edge of your seat thriller. If you want a backwoods thriller, read The Marsh King's Daughter by Dionne.

    Looking forward to the next book!

    My review for this book was published in the Feb. 15, 2018, edition of Library Journal:

    On the lam from a drug cartel after they killed his girlfriend, biologist Rice Moore has gone off the grid in Virginia, finding work as a caretaker at the secluded Turk Mountain Preserve. The forest is off-limits to hunters, and Moore's primary job is to monitor the vast acreage for disturbances. It's lonely and exhausting work but exactly what Moore needs, until he discovers a bear carcass left behind by poac
