I don't know how to write this without being hyperbolic, but I absolutely was floored by this book. I felt like I was reading the work of a new literary great. I don't want to get too much into the plot because it's a mystery and I'm terrible with accidentally giving away spoilers, but the plot itself--you the reader are trying to uncover what has happened to this woman who you don't even know is dead or not--is surprising and suspenseful the entire 300+ pages. I never wanted it to end. But the most exciting discovery here is not the answer to the mystery, but the unique voice of the author. I haven't been this excited for more work from someone since I saw Bottle Rocket by Wes Anderson. I am not comparing them in terms of tone (so if you don't like him, don't let that deter you from reading this) but in terms of uniqueness. It is funny, descriptive in the most surprising ways and suspenseful as I said earlier. I feel like I can't do it justice by describing it, you just have to read it. Needless to say I haven't felt motivated to write a review like this before, and I probably won't again until her next book!

The style is so rich and original I hadn't even noticed I was halfway through - and suddenly a surprise floored me. How did I not see that coming? How did Bahr write this truly original, gripping, imaginative piece?

Do you read this book or just the reviews? If you read the reviews and decide not to read this book can you claim to be a reader of great books? Do you trust John Skipps new imprint Fungasm press and there first book or do you just buy something from a more experienced publisher. Will you talk to the cute girl at your job or just dream about her? This book is a twisted trip into a choose your own adventure vibe but never fully dives into that scene. You never really know whats going to happen next here and thus its tough to stop reading it. Just a great book that leaves you wanting to read it again to pick up new clues to see what really is happening.

Read this book. It will trip you right out. In a good way. You probably haven't read a book like this before. I hadn't. Not really... there is something reminiscent about it, Vonnegut, Robbins, Bukowski with a vagina? But ultimately, the style is pretty unique.
It is funny. Laugh out loud funny, and creepy and ethereal and weird and lyrical and savvy and dark and fun. Sometimes, I was turned on and creeped out at the same time, sometimes I was laughing so hard I had to read passages a couple of times because I felt like I was watching a movie where when you laugh too hard you miss something - and then I'd remember I was reading a book.
I don't want to give anything away, but when Ms. Bahr starts talking straight to you (read it and you'll know what I mean) you suddenly can't wait to find out who you are.
Do yourself a favor. Melt your mind with Haunt.

I am an avid reader and collector of horror fiction. If it's out there, I figure I have read it. Haunt is a fabulous, trippy, joy ride that will take you places you never knew you should probably avoid (and if you know what I mean by that, this book will be right up your alley). For genre fans, suffice to say that John Skipp developed a new imprint to ensure this book would get out there. I will not do it justice if i tried to descibe it. It is a sexy-creepy-ghost story-mystery. It is an out of body meditation on obsession. It is a great read and it is a fun read. Get it. Read it. Spread the word.

"Haunt" by LLB.......

.....MESMERIZING.......did you believe the answers were the key to understanding? When it was the questions that mattered.............

TANTALIZING.........one should always have something scandalous to read on the train.

CAPTIVATING........how do you connect the dots.........when the dots keep moving?

........ and DEVASTATING.......because you've reached the final page, haven't you?

..........or have you just begun?

LLB - OMG! WTF?

I have a thing for experimental forms. From Mark Danielewski's House of Leaves to Salvador Plascencia's The People of Paper, nothing gets me more excited about a book than when I see strangely placed columns, random font changes and blacked out sections that contribute to the overall thematic power and weirdness of a literary work. I like to think my love of meta-fiction and the trappings thereof were fostered in my youth with the Choose Your Own Adventure Series. Those books allowed the reader to choose directions and actions at certain points of action within the narrative, which led the protagonist (ostensibly, the reader) toward either victory, or (much more frequently) their untimely demise.

In her debut novel Haunt, author Laura Lee Bahr explores the form of Choose Your Own Adventures but like Samuel Beckett cutting sound or lighting or actors from his plays, Bahr subverts the form by removing the element of choice. What do you do, as the hero of the story, when those vital choices are wrenched away from you and you're forced to live each of the possibilities in a schizophrenic pastiche of probability?

There are three characters of note in Haunt, all of whom are given plenty of time to shine. Simon is the dashing (sometimes) insane (sometimes) journalist who may or may not be involved in the mysterious death of me (Sarah) the ghost haunting your (Richard's) apartment. There's also a couch (which is yours, but did you bring it inside? Or did you leave out in the cold? Or did you do both? Or neither?) What's under the cushions? Who is that singing? And what happened to Sarah to make her dead? This is a rare novel that brings up far more questions than it answers, but Bahr uses tricky plotting and exciting prose style to pull you along through the mystery without question.
