Review The Elephant Tree

Menting his income with a small scale drug dealing operation Angela is an attractive 23 year old raised by her father a career criminal and small time drug dealer who supplies Scott with cannabis This is a chilling tal My only fault with this book is that I simply didn t want to put it down in between sittings which was a tad problematic at bedtimeit wasn t a book I had chosen myself to read and probably wouldn t have if it hadn t been recommended to meI can honestly say it has set the bar for my future expectations it has all the aspects I crave from a book good characterisation with a punchy storyline and disappointment of the last page perfection I have to say though for a first published novel I am amazedand am now than looking forward to reading stuff from Mr Ronald And I highly recommend it

brother and supple When I was first offered The Elephant Tree for review I didn t uite know what to think I really liked the cover and I thought it might be interesting but that s about it Then I started reading and it s mostly about drug dealers and that s not really up my alley given my prudish upbringingTurns out I m really glad I read itThe Elephant Tree is Ronald s debut and I have to say I m really impressed That s not to say this was a perfect book It is a little disjointed in parts and some of the foreshadowingset up is a little confusing and the blurb on the back is kind of misleading It talks about a character that has maybe 5 pages total involvement as if he s a main characterOther than that I was really attached to the actual main characters Scott and Angela and the plot definitely threw me for some loops Scott is a drug dealer with bigger plans but stuck in a rut and Angela is a drug dealer s daughter who s lived with it all her life They both want from life but don t uite know how to get thereThe majority of the book we follow Scott around through his life He smokes weed smokes a cigarette drinks a pint smokes weed rinse and repeat This goes on for uite a while and I hate to bring up another negative point because I really did like this book but it was a bit ridiculous how much of a focus this book has on the above Then again that s a culture I m completely unaware of and I have to admit it gives you a good sense of the lives of these characters and what they revolve aroundScott has always been talking about leaving the drug dealing life and moving up and finally he s offered a chance to do just that His friend Twinkle nickname has an easy job lined up and it would make them a lot of money Of course this gets them in with a boss in town and that kind of relationship is not too easy to breakThe Elephant Tree is definitely worth the read There are great characters a great plot and everything just fits together in a great timeline with a great paceWhy Should You Read The Elephant TreeOur society is very interested in drug culture Almost every movie you watch has at least a reference to drugs if not the plethora that actually revolve around drug dealing Blow and Half Baked are the first that come to mind The Elephant Tree was written by someone who has experienced this it was mostly written from prison and after reading it I feel like I have a much better understanding of what goes on Recommended35 out of 5 Stars Beautiful Torment Beautiful 1 profile city centre nightclubs Scott is a dejected 24 year old struggling to make

R.D. Ronald Å 9 Review

E spanning a few months in the lives of Scott and Angela where realizations about the present combine with shocking revelations from the past leading to an apocalyptic climax where they no longer know whom they can tru Initially I wasn t sure what to expect from The Elephant Tree and only bought the ebook because it was cheap but how glad I am that I did I think this is the modern day euivalent of the bargain bin books I used to find hidden gems in when I was a kid It s difficult to describe the certain elements of intrigue in The Elephant Tree without giving away any spoilers but I will say that this is far than your typical case of crime fiction police procedural coupled with predictable clich d romance then tied off in a bow at the end There is a lot of depth to the character arcs and better plot development than you d expect in this type of novel The interwoven storylines get better still as you progress through the book without ever feeling contrived as an excuse to sueeze in chaptersI m not typically someone who is drawn to this kind of book but I did love this and will seek out by R D Ronald in the future I d certainly recommend this to fans of crime or thrillers in general but don t expect the same ride that you re used to Full marks from me for daring to break the mold on what I had considered to be a bit of a stuffy genre
