This story is not for the delicate of the heart. Suspenseful wild ride of the mind.,
This review is from: Shangri-La Trailer Park (Kindle Edition)
Shangri-La Trailer Park by John Zunski is a full impact story about a character searching for a lost part of his soul. He decided to hike the Appalachian Trail looking for salvation but does not know what direction to travel. He has visions which are directing him on his path; he had an accident and meets a stranger that brings him, actually holds him hostage in a trailer park. In the trailer park, he is slowly becomes part of their demented world of the bad rift raft. There are some serious graphic plot scenarios in this story. At first one could be offended but as the story unravels, these details are necessary to conclude like a surprise gift, the villain had to be described as the dark psycho as his is and his victims needed to suffer the toil of his wicked actions for the hero to be justified in his actions.
The author declares in the description of this story," Hop on board for a forty-eight hour ride through the world's most dysfunctional trailer park. WARNING! Don't read if your are: A) easily offended B) politically correct C) like everything nice or D) believe in the Easter Bunny!
As a reader I have read his other stories and know that he has a gift to create a story that captures an individual's heart and make one cry and this story captures an individual's morals and takes you on a wild ride into the dark side of the mind, leaving you breathless at the conclusion. This story is not for the delicate at heart. If you are a reader looking for wicked fun when the kiddies go to bed, then this is the story for the grown-ups in you who can tolerate a hard core tale to see the villain pounded and the hero relishing in his victory.

I just finished reading Shangri-La Trailer Park and I loved it. It doesn't need any more of a warning than the umpteen grisly murders and sex crimes that overflow our entertainment plate every day of the week. And the author brings a subtle artistry to the tale that is irresistable. Many authors find prose adequate to communicate the narrative. Only a few are able to make words sing together. I'm reading John's first book now, Cemetery Street. He shows the same fine ability as a word smith in a very different genre - a tear jerker.
@Dr. Sorrell, I just saw a tweet by Georgia saying she is working on reformatting for e-publishing right now. She was singing the praises of James Wallace Birch for his tutorial on the subject which is published on his blog at dttla.posterous.com/. I hope she has it done soon.
