FREE READ Ghost Road Blues 107 Jonathan Maberry Î 7 FREE READ Ly desecrated bodies Inexplicable insanity And an ancient evil walking the streets drawing in those who would fall to their own demons and seeking to shred the very soul of this rapidly fracturing community Yes the residents of Pine Deep have drawn together and faced a killer before But this time evil has many faces and the lust and will to rule the earth This struggle will be epi. Ghost Road Blues was a great book to read during the month of October as part of my 4th Annual October Scare fest I love that spooky mood that comes along with the fall when the days get shorter the nights longer and the weather cooler hopefully Although this novel was very good and well written I have to put in in the liked fairly well as opposed to loved or really liked category Let s talk about the stuff that didn t uite work for me I think that this story depends a bit too much on the human evil uotient for my tastes That doesn t make it bad at all However I like supernatural horror and inhuman monsters I know all about the evil that men are capable of Just turn on the news or check Yahoo s home page and you will get your fill of that For this reader when I pick up a fiction novel in the horror category I want to see some nasty unreal supernatural baddies who scare the heck out of me but hopefully get thoroughly vanuished by the good guys Yeah whatever the cynics will revile me for my hopelessly optimistic nature That s okay Life sucks We all know that But hope is what keeps us going Hope makes the heart keep beating Reading about horrible people and their horrible acts on others doesn t do it for me In this case Maberry takes the supernatural and wraps it around a whole lot of human darkness He does it well I can t deny And he doesn t make this book overflowing with gore and gratuitous violence which is a plus However reading about view spoiler an evil waste of skin stepfather nearly beating a kid to death a psychopathic criminal abusing andor murdering numerous people a racist mob beating a black man to death is a lot to handle and let s not forget a religious fanatic who hears the voice of God in his head and commits unspeakable acts in God s name it s a bit much for me even if it ties seamlessly into the story hide spoiler

FREE READ Ghost Road Blues 107 Jonathan Maberry Î 7 FREE READ Harvest began a time when a serial killer sheared a bloody swath through the uiet Pennsylvania village The evil that once coursed through Pine Deep has been replaced by cheerful tourists getting ready to enjoy the country's largest Halloween celebration in what is now called The Spookiest Town in America It Just Grows Stronger But then a month before Halloween it begins Unspeakab. I should begin by saying that I like horror movies I m usually too scared to watch them completely at least when I m alone which I usually am so I hide my face behind a pillow or something but I like them And I always liked October and Halloween and Friday 13ths This year there even is a Friday 13th in October which makes me especially happy I can t tell you exactly why The day isn t any special as an atheist I don t really believe in magic unless we re talking about the magic of reality But I like the atmosphere and decorating the house reading by candle light while listening to the noises the old wooden house makesNaturally this means that I like to read horror novels too Sadly not one horror book has managed to actually scare me yet but I think it s because of the medium because it can t be the writers Hence every year I like to pile up some spooky books for October This particular book was a buddy read with Brad who introduced me to it and its authorThe story is about a small rural town in the US There are corn fields all around scarecrows and night birds hardworking folks and cops who usually spend their time giving out parking tickets life is simple not necessarily in a bad way The special thing about Pine Deep the town in uestion is the hay ride which has become famous thanks to Crow the main character who is a goofball par excellence and loves to scare the shit out of anyone daring to go on the hay ride He was endearing from the get goHowever as these stories go there is a very dark secret in the past of this town and probably not the one readers of this first volume already know about And as it was said many times in this novel evil never dies it just goes away for a while or sleeps but it always comes backWell it s back alright and you can imagine how it works its way into the hearts and minds of peopleThe problem I had with this book was that it s all over the place The author also seems to try to channel his inner Stephen King what with the structure of the book and the kind of characterizations of the people But he never uite manages He s always a few sandwiches short of a picknick Like the scarecrows in the fields the storm overhead at night and the constant mentioning of night birds for the scenery Or the bad guys not only being wife beaters and kid beaters but also white supremacist so everyone will understand that they are really BAD Or Connie being an almost stupidly sweet woman who of course likes to cook and be the perfect little wife to the son of a farmer The evil actually being German apparently I don t need a costume for Halloween I just celebrate in the US and let people know I m German that will suffice Overly simplistic The supernatural element is also too much at once Maybe it ll get explained better in the other two volumes but view spoilerwe have a werewolf that gets killed 30 years ago is then buried in the swamp which kinda conserves his evilness and that suddenly gives him the power of Satan hide spoiler

FREE READ Ghost Road Blues 107 Jonathan Maberry Î 7 FREE READ Winner of the Bram Stoker Award for Best First Novel From a new master of horror comes an apocalyptic showdown between the residents of a secluded rural town and the deadly evil that confronts them wherever they turn Evil Doesn't Die The cozy little town of Pine Deep buried the horrors of its past a long time ago Thirty years have gone by since the darkness descended and the Black. I am going to be the party pooper again Many of my friends enjoyed this story but as much as I tried and boy did I ever try I could not fall into this book Part of the problem was the narrator His voice was gravelly and deep and it suited some of the characters but it grated on me Sorry but it s true It s a personal thing and I know this You may love his manly voice but it didn t do it for me His female voices were nothing short of atrocious and unnatural and I am not apologizing for that But the other part of my problem was the story itself I can usually get past a not so fantastic narrator if the story grabs me but try as I might I could not stay focused on this story of violence mainly perpetrated by awful men Spending time in the heads of these despicable fellows was not a fun time and I guess I just wasn t in the mood for it because I found it slow and uninteresting and I didn t find it even a wee bit scary I enjoyed the small town setting but the awful things going on and around there just left me kind of numb and very bored I didn t care for any of the characters and that is always a big problem for me so I than likely won t be continuing on with the series2 12 Stars
