    ?This town?s full of sorrows, isn?t it?? it sure is. this return to cataract city is nothing but heartpunches, one after another. it?s only about 250 pages, so it won?t take you long to read, but it will stick to you for longer than many thicker books, if you?ve ever b...

    Like the derelict buildings that were never torn down, the abandoned shopping carts that rusted away to atoms, and all the other monuments to the city?s general apathy, the car in the oxbow had become an accepted part of the scenery. ~The Saturday Night Ghost Club I?m calling it ri...

    I picked up Craig Davidson's new novel, The Saturday Night Ghost Club on a lazy Sunday morning and literally couldn't put it down until the last page was turned. Yup, that addicting. Our protagonist is Jake Baker - we meet him as the adult neurosurgeon he is today and the young boy ...

    I really loved this book. For one, I grew up in St. Catharines (like Davidson himself apparently), and frequently visited Niagara Falls. It was where you went when your friends first got driving licenses and you wanted to feel like an adult doing adult things. Davidson perfectly captu...

    This book has so much that I love. Canadiana, 80's pulp culture, and the unexplained. It also has an amazing story about memories and the power of our minds to create their own realities. I highly recommend. ...

    The Saturday Night Ghost Club was a wonderful coming-of-age story. It tells the story of a neurosurgeon, Jake, who is looking back at the summer that he was twelve. It was an amazing and bittersweet time. That summer, in the Niagara Falls area, Jake meets his first real friend, falls...

    Have you ever read a book that you loved so much that you feel as if any review you wrote could never even begin to do it justice, so you feel stuck and unable to articulate anything? That's how I feel right now. This is my first book by Craig Davidson, but I've read all three of th...

    4.0 Stars This is such a wonderful coming of age story filled with nostalgia and beautiful imagery. Davidson is an incredibly talented author with some mad writing chops! While reading, I found myself constantly highlighting passages in this novel. This is the kind of literary fi...

    to call this novel a horror story doesn't describe what it is. to summarize at as a ghost story seems to be an incomplete description. the Saturday Night Ghost Club contain elements of those descriptors. yet at its heart it is a coming of age story wrapped in urban legends and ghost st...

    This story is an examination of how the brain comes to build a belief system as well as its emotional circuit-board of responses and attachments, and I cannot imagine how anyone could read this novel and not give it 5 Stars. The writing is outstanding from every angle; there is not a s...

    This is only my second Craig Davidson book which is great because that means I have so many more to read. The thing about Craig Davidson is that his writing is so buttery and beautiful that you find yourself wanting to highlight so many passages but you end up highlighting none because...

    Phenomenal read! Anyone who grew up in the 80's will love the nostalglic bits. The coming of age adventures is very comparable to Stand by Me as described by reviewers, with a dash of mystery, and paranormal flare, sheer perfection. Each year I have one book that's my favourite. I'm th...

    Haunting, tragic, beautiful. I'll leave it at that, and end with the author's words as I can't say it any more eloquently: That magic gets kicked out of you, churched out, shamed out?or worse, you steal it from yourself. It gets embarrassed out of you by the kids who run the s...

    "Ours was a small, contained universe and I was happy within it." I've been waiting for a book like this. It's small and familiar, like briefly visiting points in my history. It captures that age so well, where the world is trapped in a sphere brimming with imagination and hard trut...

    I was skeptical when going into this book. Despite the excellent reviews it has gotten, it had two strikes against it, for me: Craig Davidson is the author behind the Nick Cutter name, and I am not a Cutter fan. As well, I am more than burned out on the ?80s nostalgia trope that is s...
