I truly enjoyed this one from Norman Prentiss. For whatever reason, it was not an easy read, although that had more to do with the way I read it (in bits and pieces), rather than how it was written. The story was original and refreshing. I wasn’t entirely sure where it was going, but definitely enjoyed the ride. Not particularly a horror read, which is my preferred genre, but this will motivate me to look up some of this authors other works. I have only read one short story by him in the past. Luckily, I have several NP’s on the tbr. They just got bumped up a few notches.
Solid characterizations and storytelling on display here. 4.5+ Stars and Highly Recommended.
P.S. I hear there is a sequel in the works, HAUNTED PLACES WITH YOUR OTHER FATHER. Nice!
I was lucky enough to read the entire book and help Norm Prentiss promote ODD ADVENTURES to the Kindle Scout program. I'm so happy to be able to now highly recommend it to all of you.
Those are the adventures I want. I know Shawn has more to tell of that wonderful year he and Jack traveled the country. There are also stories about how they created a loving home, and how Celia, their daughter came into their lives.
Yes, there must be more Odd Adventures, more normal adventures, and also more horrifying adventures too. I want them all.
Thank you Norman, thank you for creating Shawn and Jack and their daughter Celia. Thank you for sharing their odd adventures.
That is the kind of feeling I had while I was reading the Norman Prentiss novel ODD ADVENTURES WITH YOUR OTHER FATHER. He was telling one story on top of another story with a third story weaving in and out like cigarette smoke curling about the ceiling of a barroom. This is not a novel for an impatient reader. The story is complex and hidden and it slowly tells itself through a series of half-remembered adventures.
This is a supernatural yarn, with hints of H.P. Lovecraft as well as Seabury Quinn.
This is a beat novel, told upon the road, and I can hear Jack Kerouac's Underwood typewriter chewing through rolls of architectural paper at a 100 words per minute, pausing occasionally for a random bongo riff.
This is a story of two men who love each other and the secret ways in which they relate with each other, in the same private language that all true lovers construct between each other.
This is a story of bread crumbs blowing in the wind down a lonesome gray highway.
This is a story told in layers. Don't lose patience with it. You won't know nor understand its true innermost complexity until you read the last page. It is one of those frustrating novels that you have to really read and pay attention and when you get to the end you will feel laughter and you will shed tears and you will nod slowly and say to yourself "So that's what he was trying to say. So that was what he really meant to say."
See it out there, just ahead of you, a Volkswagen Beetle with one mismatched door, trailing down the highway.
Jump in and start reading.
You won't regret it.
yours in storytelling,
