Book Review: Clown in a Cornfield by Adam Cesare

Clown in a Cornfield


  • I appreciated the pacing and suspense present right from the beginning.
  • There is so much mystery, and Cesare creates a vivid picture that adds to the horror. The action and fights are well choreographed and add to the thrill.
  • The characters are well-developed, and even the annoying and unlikeable ones have a clear purpose in the story. I also like that fear is the first response rather than immediate heroism and bravery.
  • The breadcrumbs are sprinkled in to the story well so that the reader can understand how everything turned out the way that it did. Even so, I didn’t predict the twist. It was AMAZING!
  • Like the last book I reviewed, this has a seamlessly bisexual character in it, which, I love. Normalizing sexuality and gender diversity is excellent.
  • And of course, the commentary on lack of understanding between generations was poignant!
  • Overall, this was a masterful, well-crafted novel. I would honestly read it again, and that isn’t something that I do often.

Least Favorites

  • I’ve mentioned it before, but I don’t really like much description on appearance. This book has more than I need in the beginning, but that’s totally personal preference.
