Tizzy heard the sickening snap of Matthew's spine, then the echo. Then the teeter-totter tottered up and down. The bonfire burned. The schoolhouse was singing, laughing, clomping. Under the great pilgrim oak, the Preacher's wild eye nailed Tizzy hard. So did the back of his hand. Oh, there's no doubt. Tizzy needed an angel to save her. Enter Matthew Birdnell, whose main goal in life is to rise to the top of the F. He gets a chance to do just that when he takes off with Tizzy on a crime spree throughout the surrounding area.
Fleeing the law, the young outlaws take refuge in the home of a strange mountain man and his daughter? It doesn't take long until they both realize they may have traded the frying pan for the fire when some sinister goings-on are discovered.

Despite the violence and adult themes, there's sort of a Hansel and Gretel in the deep, dark forest feel to this that I enjoyed. The mountain seems to be some sort of enchanted though not in a good way place that time forgot. Thornhorn's voice is creamy smooth, a good aged bourbon, laced with just a hint of arsenic. Though some readers may be put off by the amount of sexual experimentation going on between two thirteen-year-olds, the only thing that bothered me was one scene that hinted at the supernatural.

This was never returned to, and I would have preferred it had been omitted. Real life on that mountain is creepy enough. If you like riddles than this book may be one for you. I love riddles but the problem is, I'm not much good at them. I loved this very very weird, strange haunting tale but did I figure it out?
Did it make me enjoy it any less? The story almost felt like two books in one, before Riddle Top and then the arrival at Riddle Top. Yeah, I don't think that's a very good description.

I would find it hard to express the gratitude I feel toward Randy Thornhorn for giving me the chance to meet Matthew and Tizzy. And to follow their journey. This book is a triumph of artistry that never, ever bogs down into the expected or the trite or the banal.
Matthew and Tizzy — the central characters — just want to run away. Poor souls. That is what makes it such a compelling and obsessive read. The pages fly by and as you near the end — you do not want the story to stop. You want to see more, know more - glimpse into the dark woods upon Riddletop again and again. But the places you go. The things you see. What you hear. All are of a piece and yet unraveling at the same time. You will want to read it and then read it again. It is that good. You will find yourself wanting — almost aching — to talk with someone about this book.

It speaks to us all — but in ever different voices. A must. There is this special place in the South you can only get to if you take a left off the main road about three miles out of town. The air is different there. The sounds and tastes have a flavor mixed together from potions handed down. Mysteries and song live together there and give themselves shape in the mist. This is the place Mr. The dirt is beneath his nails.

I made it back from Riddletop, but just barely.

It did not disappoint, and added to the mythology of the strange world Mr. Thornhorn has imagined. I don't really think it matters which one you read first; each enhances the other. Wicked Temper is situated in the wooded mountains of Appalachia - well, sort of! It's the story of a young hoodlum couple on the run from police.

They are taken in by a strange man who is tantalizingly familiar to us. Both charismatic and brutal, the man, who shall be nameless, carries with him an aura of evil. This novella is written in such a way that one needs a few pages to settle into the language of it. But settle in, you will, as the words sing off the page. Don't miss this one! Although this book confused me like none other, which I am sure is intentional, it was a great read. I was drawn in and fell in love with Tizzy and Matthew from page 1 and was absolutely fascinated by where the story took me.
