Blog Review For:  Great Minds Think Aloud

"Lost In The Bayou" by Cornell Deville was indeed a good  YA thriller.  I thought
the story was very well written with lots of fast paste action. "Lost in the Bayou"
was definitely a page turner in that I could not put it down until I was finished with
it.... with each chapter leaving you wondering just what was happening next.
This author did a wonderful job with this YA action thriller. 

 I found Robin simply amazing... along with her dear brother....Andy.  In the novel their parents had disappeared and along come this horrible person who is their fathers brother....Uncle Conrad with his metal prosthesis...... is now taking charge of them.  This uncle Conrad  was indeed a mean and very dangerous   person and I can only  say God help these poor children....for this  uncle even scared me! Was he really as crazy as he seemed to be? Just how will this  all work out? .... You must pick up this good read to find out what and how this will  turn out.

The characters really come out in making this a good read ......the author was able
to make you really be drawn into this storyline.  The children having been from a very
loving family...close to the servants and now ....then  this scary uncle who said things like:
"I'm going to kill you until you kill me first." What?

The ending of this novel will be very dramatic... with so many twist and turns so get ready.  If you are in for a good thriller in the bayou, crazy uncle, monsters, zombies, blueberries,
'The Lone Ranger,'  alligators, insects, bugs, and much more.... you will be in for a read that you will not forget.  I would recommend not only for the young but the adult will enjoy this good read too.


  1. Super review! For those who love a good book with a dash of Louisiana flavor, look no further.

  2. Congrats, Cornell, on a great review.
