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.
.....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?
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.Read more ›
