I must confess I thought the story would be about a train. Then once the comic book references started I thought it might be another comic book themed work.
It is none of those things. It is a coming of age short story that reads fast and hard like a hailstorm on a hot summer day. There are those things worth saving and perhaps, as Summers’ protagonist learns, they are saved despite the ravages of time, if we endure.
This is a haunting book that delves into those small events in our lives that define who and what we are -- and what we can become.
Two thumbs up. This is a keeper
It is a story of a man finding a rare comic book. Well, that’s the basic storyline, anyway. There are no explosions, no alien encounters. But there is more to the story than you first think. Like any good fiction, there is the story, then there’s the story within the story. That’s the one that makes you stop and think. No. 38 makes you do that.
While not giving away the story, I can say this is as good as any other literary fiction I’ve read. What’s more is the limited words Kevin uses to get the idea across. Kevin G. Summers gained a new reader in me, and I look forward to reading more of his work.
There is an instance or two of cursing in the story. Otherwise, enjoy a quick, fun read.
