Available for the first time on Amazon Kindle, Kealan Patrick Burke's Bram Stoker Award-winning coming of age story The Turtle Boy.

School is out and summer has begun. For eleven year old Timmy Quinn and his best friend Pete Marshall, the dreary town of Delaware Ohio becomes a place of magic, hidden treasure and discovery.

But on the day they encounter a strange young boy sitting on the bank of Myers Pond, a pond playground rumor says may hide turtles the size of Buicks, everything changes.

For it soon becomes apparent that dark secrets abound in the little community, secrets which come cupped in the hands of the dead, and in a heartbeat, Timmy and Pete's summer of wonder becomes a season of terror, betrayal and murder.


"..takes the small town setting of Delaware, Ohio, and imbues it with just enough wonder to evoke Bradbury and early King and even a dash of Mark Twain circa Tom Sawyer." -

"If you have a young child, or remember when you were one yourself, The Turtle Boy is a book you don't want to miss." - The Midwest Book Review

5.0 von 5 Sternen Read this book!! 29. August 2011

The Turtle boy sounds like a sweet innocent story about a boy and his turtle right? Wrong!! Sure the story starts out innocent enough, two young boys playing outside while on summer vacation, just a lazy day trying to figure out what to do. That is until they decide to make their way to the pond, and that is where it begins to get a little disturbing. Once they meet the turtle boy their lives will change forever!

This book was such a great intro to Kealan Patrick Burke and his work. I am of course planning on reading the rest of the series, and anything else I can get my hands on by this author. This book isn't going to hit you over the head with graphic violence and gore, but is instead geared for those who appreciate the subtle eerie nuances that can make for an interestingly creepy read. There was a point in the book towards the end when something was revealed (not going to say what beside that it involved a single flicker of lightning) where my mouth literally fell open. For anyone who is debating on whether or not to read this book, stop debating and READ THIS BOOK!

I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Minor gripes do not effect a great little story! 20. Oktober 2008
Von G. Guthrie - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This is an interesting and fun story that tried to cram in a ton of explanations and speculations in the last 15 pages of the book. The story's protagonist is an 11-year old boy named Timmy, who along with his friend encounters a horrific child at a local lake that he ends up calling The Turtle Boy. Timmy has unknowingly come upon a secret involving the boy and his neighborhood, and the story unfolds as Timmy's actions force the secret of the Turtle Boy back into the open.

It's really hard not to give away spoilers here as this is a novella. But the story builds up slowly and then at the end you get slammed with the answers, and even more than you were expecting or needing. I think some of this could have been spread out through the story rather than crammed in at the end. It felt like there was a narrator telling you what just happened, like we really needed all that explanation. *shrug* Regardless, this was a very entertaining story, effortless to read, and left the reader wanting more, which the author helps with by leaving open speculation about his father. This story is easily recommended.

The Turtle Boy meanders like a lazy summer afternoon that soon turns itself inside out. With frightening speed that warm afternoon is ripped away to reveal a night sky, razor shredded by lightening. Images back-lit, sickening and unexpected crawl off the pages and carve their way under your skin like so many demonic chiggers.

This story was awesomely disturbing. The beginning had a bit of a To Kill a Mockingbird/Stand By Me vibe. The pacing was perfect as this creepy little tale whipped itself into a horrifying frenzy. The images jump out, stick there and simmer, brewing `til you try to sleep. Buckle up, Skippy, the nightmares are going to be intense.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Awesome! 21. Dezember 2004
Von Abigail89 - Veröffentlicht auf

I read recently a review in which the reviewer compared THE TURTLE BOY favorably to such classics as Stephen King's "The Body" (from DIFFERENT SEASONS--filmed as STAND BY ME) and Robert R. McCammon's BOYS LIFE. After reading this novella, I have to agree. At turns heartwarming, terrifying and funny, this creepy little story will get under your skin and stay there. It may also serve to remind you of your youth and when you first realized magic can end.

Highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Short but oh soooo sweet 19. August 2011
Von The Sassy Lady - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I must admit the second biggest reason that I got this book was because it was free, but I have to say it great. The langue is stunning and the story compelling and creepy. I know that one person didn't like it because they didn't seem to get that this is a ghost story. If you are the kind of person that has been ruined by instant gratification, buckets of gore, and are a fan of the Saw movies then don't waste your time. But if you have imagination and are looking for something more than your typical vamp book then this is for you.
The only problem that I had with it was that it's too short, I wouldn't event call it a novella. It's not even a terribly long short story, but I will definitely get the next in the series, I'll event pay for it!
