Just finished this book and I’m totally in love with it. It is passionate and mysterious. Her language is so lovely. It comes out April of next year so keep your eyes out for it. You’ll enjoy it whether you’re a fan of Wuthering Heights or not.
The moment I saw Poe’s name I was intrigued. Mr. Wilson did not disappoint. If you are already a fan of Poe you will enjoy this alternate history of Poe as a hero. If you don’t have the slightest clue who Edgar Allan Poe is then you will be seduced by the magic and mystery of the tale. I have already recommended this to people who know and love Poe. I am confident they will love it as well. My only issue is with the prose as it tends to overflow in some passages but I think that is a problem with the reader and not necessarily with the writer. I am just one who prefers a simpler style. However fans of Hardy or James will really appreciate the long, detailed sentences. Overall I gave it 4 out of 5 stars. But a very high recommendation for all to read it.
We celebrated Indies First Day in both Brooklyn and Jersey City (at our WORD on the Street table) with some of the area’s loveliest authors — all of whom, we are pleased to report, have excellent taste in books!
My fantastic bookstore. I’m already in love with it. Yay Indies!!
I finished this book a few days ago but put off doing a review because I wanted to make sure I was being honest and not just being influenced by the hype. And there was a lot for this book. But I’m ready. I really enjoyed Reno. I liked her more than most female characters. She was tough but vulnerable. It’s something that didn’t happen very often. She seemed real. Not in one category— this is good girl vs this is bad girl. Overall the story was only ok but I think meeting Reno was with it.
I just finished this and I’m a bit aghast. It’s weird. It’s gross. It’s bizarre. But I couldn’t put it down. I think it’ll stay with me for a while and I’ll find myself recommending it to people who can handle it.
Just when I think I can’t love Neil Gaiman anymore he comes along with this book. It’s like a dream remembered. It’s a book that I would recommend to anyone— young or old. Among my favorite books of all time, instantly.
