Rated 5 out of 5 by from "The Gargoyle" Great book! I have to agree with the first post. I love reading books, I read about 4 to 6 books every month, and the Gargoyle is one of my favorites. Beautiful story!

  • Reviewer: Janet Maslin, (New York Times)

    "A transportingly unhinged debut novel....[THE GARGOYLE] incorporate[s] a wild, seemingly random array of tricks and tangents. But Mr. Davidson binds them together with vigorous and impressive narrative skill."
  • Reviewer: Roz Kaveney, (Independent (London))

    "This is an insane but well-crafted book, as grotesque as its heroine's carvings....Some novels about love's pains and rewards move far beyond common sense....One reason why poets have been so keen to send lovers to the pains of death or hell is that these are the things we feel love is like. Andrew Davidson does this, and more: his first novel is a fever dream of passion which does not have to make entire sense, because it is a powerful metaphor for deep emotion."
  • Reviewer: Ron Charles, (Washington Post)

    " can assume about this spectacularly imaginative journey will help navigate its twists and turns....I dare you to read this without flinching. It's as engrossing as it is gruesome, the kind of horror you watch with one eye closed....[T]his is undeniably a hot book, one likely to ignite the passion of anyone who loves a mix of romance and the macabre."
  • Reviewer: Sheryl Connelly, (New York Daily News)

    "[Davidson] gives us a story that sweeps us in with no protest. You want to be lost in its pages, immersed in the unfolding tale of the human gargoyle and a flesh and blood wraith. In the final analysis, the real tragedy of this book is that it ends."
  • Reviewer: Chuck Leddy, (Boston Globe)

    "[A] page-turning adventure that will keep you reading well past bedtime....Andrew Davidson's sometimes cringe-inducing yet spellbinding debut novel...mixes medieval symbolism, Christian allegory, and a Dantean journey to the underworld in order to tell a transcendent love story."
