The next chapter erased my concerns entirely. That was, in fact, just the voice of the character… And the ensuing chapters only demonstrate that Ms. Lee’s gift for channeling the voices of a diverse and motley cast of persons hasn’t diminished at all, but continues to grow not only more real and fleshy, but poignant as well.
In fact, it’s one of the chapters towards the end, in the voice of that self-same scholar, that is one of the more moving and tragic movements in the novelette.
The story itself is brilliant. This would make an excellent movie. The whole time I was reading it I couldn’t help but imagine it translated for cinema. It’s about a haunted house, packed full of ghosts from varying centuries, who struggle to adapt to a world overrun by zombies. Yes, you read that right. It’s inspired. So much has been written about mankind’s struggles to survive the zombie plague. Yet I’ve never heard someone tackle it through the perspective of the spirit-world. The characters themselves are almost archetypical and are given archetypical titles like “The Knight,” “The Child,” etc. But each one has an interesting, mysterious life story and a thought-provoking way of adapting to the “zom-bees,” “zomb-things,” and “the enemi, things from the old tales these.”
My only complaint is that this should have been a novel or even a series of novels. Ms. Lee has so many interesting characters here, and they’re thrust into such a fascinating, unique situation. The ingredients were there for a lot more than the constraints of the novelette allow for.
Well, maybe if enough people read this and want more, she’ll revisit this world, and these amazing characters.
