Mannheim Rex

Ons of his own Gavin joins Finn on his perilous uest to slay the nightmarish leviathanAn homage to the blockbuster Jaws and the classic American novel Moby Dick Mannheim Rex is a deep dark thriller that switches seamlessly between heartwarming friendship and heart stopping actio. You want to know the best thing about lake monstersRobert Pobi s second novel Mannheim Rex falls firmly within the territory of a literary genre I coined I call it trashy underwater fiction TUF and have ever since I was the editor of a magazine for scuba divers There are many subgenres of TUF killer marine life mermaids talking dolphins undersea city etc Mannheim Rex is of the lake monster subgenre And I ask you how can you go wrong There s a lake and you have a monster It almost writes itselfWell let s give credit where credit is due I think Mr Pobi had a hand in this After the reuisite mysterious fishing death the novel opens in the New York apartment of a hugely successful horror novelist If you stretch your imagination you can probably think of a real world counterpart Not yet forty Gavin Corlie has realized the kind of success most men only dream about but that can t bring his wife back Unable to move past his grief he knows something has to change Almost on a whim he buys a house upstate on Lake CaldasacThere Corlie begins to find some measure of peace and begins to make friends first with Finn a handicapped thirteen year old boy and then with the local doctor treating him But Finn also introduces Gavin to the mysterious goings on at the lake The two of them join together on a uest to uncover the truth and to hunt a lake monsterNow this is all pretty familiar territory to aficionados of TUF but Pobi s having fun with the genre tropes He ll win no literary awards but I ve seen writing that s far worse The plot was fairly predictable especially the identity of the mystery monster but some scenes like a certain basement seuence elevated the material briefly The characters were a mixed bag Corlie was enjoyable enough but Finn drove me nuts I wanted to punch that little handicapped kid He was so annoying Also in addition to the threat in the lake the novel features a second antagonist This character was COMPLETELY over the top It was actually a little hard to believe what I was reading at times The novel s pace was okay a somewhat surprising fact given the book s inflated 540 page lengthMannheim Rex isn t literature but if you re reading this review I don t think that s what you re looking for You want to know the best thing about lake monsters They can turn out to be almost anything I d not encountered this culprit before and despite some predictability Mannheim Rex is a welcome addition to my trashy underwater fiction shelves

Free read Mannheim Rex

Recently widowered and grieving Gavin flees New York City for the uiet of the country His new home on Lake Caldasac has surprisingly few visitors and the author soon learns why a suspiciously high number of people have gone missing in the small town The deaths have all been rule. Gavin Corlie is a famous horror writer who loses his wife in a traffic accident and spends his days in a drunken stupor considering suicide Eventually realising he has to change his life he buys a house in New Mannheim on the banks of Lake Caldasac where he retreats to the country to lick his wounds Once there he meets Finn Horn a young handicapped boy who enjoys fishing on the lake and the lovely Dr Laurel Their lives intersect and together Gavin and Finn begin to hunt the creature which nearly killed Finn out on the lake For there is a reason that nobody fishes on Lake Caldasac and why it has than the usual number of boating accidents and unexplained deaths and that is the monster that lurks in the waterThis novel reminded me of a 1970 s disaster movie but in the nicest way On one level it is a basic story about Gavin and Finn both damaged in some way and their hunt for the creature that will continue to kill unless it is caught Yet it also has great characters and a heartwarming message about friendship and acceptance as well as the second monster of the storyline the psychotic Sheriff Pope who haunts the pages of the novel with a malevolence and violence which makes him almost as scary as the creature in the water I think this book could easily become a pretty average tv movie which personally I would avoid I can say with certainty that the novel is much better than anything a scriptwriter could make of it I really enjoyed this it was the first book I have tried by this author but I am sure it will not be the last I read by him
