Review from OnlineBookClub.org
Opening with a stunning scene that drops the reader straight into the action. McDowell by William H. Coles promises to be an extremely compelling novel. The novel presents a unique blend of Nepalese mountain climbing, themes of misogyny, and an unforgettable protagonist. Focusing primarily on the titular character, McDowell draws readers in through its array of characters, clever dialogue, and underlying arc of redemption.
Coles’s analysis of McDowell’s character and motivation remained a constant source of intrigue throughout the novel. The author’s unique implementation of multiple perspectives allows his audience to feel as though they have lived McDowell’s biography; from the inner thoughts of his nemesis reporter to the devastating struggles of his most trusted daughter, nearly every point of view seems to have been considered.
