Murmuration by TJ Klune

About the Author
When TJ Klune was eight, he picked up a pen and paper and began to write his first story (which turned out to be his own sweeping epic version of the video game Super Metroid—he didn't think the game ended very well and wanted to offer his own take on it. He never heard back from the video game company, much to his chagrin). Now, two decades later, the cast of characters in his head have only gotten louder, wondering why he has to go to work as a claims examiner for an insurance company during the day when he could just stay home and write. 
 
 He lives with a neurotic cat in the middle of the Sonoran Desert. It’s hot there, but he doesn’t mind. He dreams about one day standing at Stonehenge, just so he can say he did.

In the small mountain town of Amorea, it’s stretching toward autumn of 1954. The memories of a world at war are fading in the face of a prosperous future. Doors are left unlocked at night, and neighbors are always there to give each other a helping hand.
 
 The people here know certain things as fact:
 
 Amorea is the best little town there is.
 
 The only good Commie is a dead Commie.
 
 The Women’s Club of Amorea runs the town with an immaculately gloved fist.
 
 And bookstore owner Mike Frazier loves that boy down at the diner, Sean Mellgard. Why they haven’t gotten their acts together is anybody’s guess. It may be the world’s longest courtship, but no one can deny the way they look at each other.
 
 Slow and steady wins the race, or so they say.
 
 But something’s wrong with Mike. He hears voices in his house late at night. There are shadows crawling along the walls, and great clouds of birds overhead that only he can see.

5++ Outstanding good!! Murmuration by TJ Klune

TJ's own words 'A love letter to the 50's'

I always have to prepare myself before for reading a Klune because....its a Klune....and that means no superficial read but a through and through developed book. You can expect everything...

Mike lives in Amorea and loves Sean. Yeah he is mesmerized by Sean
and Sean.... he loves Mike. Only somehow they never put it in words.....

"It has only ever been Sean. It will only ever be Sean"

It's a s l o w b u r n one very slow and easy progress but....with none dull moment.

With every page there is a sneak preview. More and more getting clear

Mike has a gap in his memory, has somewhat déjà vu moments, he sees and hears things....and where they from.....I can't tell...

I really can't tell details that would give this beautiful story away but if you are familiar with Klune's writing you know you can expect something amazing. You won't believe your eyes.

Amorea a lovely village with meddling people (but just because they care and can :)
Amorea a little slice of heaven....I think a sort of Utopia....
And there are inexplicable things happening and inexplicable forgetfulness.

It's mysterious, fantastical....like with a bit from beyond....like from another dimension... ....but.you.never.know.for.sure.....it will make you so curious how and why things happen as they happen. It is becoming increasingly oppressive......It's utterly confusing (in a very good way)

Mike loves Sean and Sean......he loves his big guy Mike... yeah....!
'There will never be a time when Mike Frazier doesn’t want Sean Mellgard'

The power of observation breathe through the pages in an amazing way.
Its delicate and detailed written. The little things, the strings through all the sentences what's makes this story big-bigger-biggest

A strong written book with an amazing storyline that let you jump from one feet to the other. You never know where you are at the moment. It will blast you away!!

..........it’s not about the length of time you have, but what you do with it."

--Deep bow for TJ Klune--
