I heard about Plebs, and once again I kept hearing the Laymon terminology being thrown out there, and I was a little intrigued. Then I had a chance to talk to Jim on Facebook, and this guy is a bigger Laymon fan than I am so I had to read Plebs. Plebs could very well be a lost Laymon novel. Yes, it’s that eerie similiar. There are also a lot of other influences running throughout the book and fans of not just splatterpunk but horror can easily find them and this is part of the appeal. This is a novel that contains a lot of what I love about a great horror novel. Plot, pacing, and characters that are flawed and on their own quite uninteresting, but through the course of the novel you see them change and become stronger. It’s a novel that you become immersed in, and when you read a great horror novel you can feel yourself being pulled in. Goforth has that ability.
Plebs is a huge book, clocking in at close to six hundred pages, but the book never loses its momentum. This is where Goforth shines. Like Laymon, Goforth is very detail-oriented but unlike, say, Stephen King, he never rambles or makes you feel as if you can skip a few pages and not miss anything. A book this large usually contains a great deal of filler, but Plebs doesn’t suffer the same fate. Goforth makes everything simple, and yes, it does contain a bit of violence which any decent horror novel has. This is one of those books that old school horror fans will truly enjoy simply because it’s a reminder of classic horror that’s edgy and entertaining. This is the future of extreme horror, kids, and I think we’ll be seeing a lot more from Jim Goforth.
Jim Goforth has a funny and fearless voice, and takes you on a wild ride in this, his debut novel. If you like the old grindhouse stuff like i do, this is it- in literary form. Check it out.
While having to deal with the various horrific and life threatening situations, Corey finds strength in himself that he didn’t know he possessed. Goforth has developed the character of Corey from a bystander in the cool crowd, to the person who is able to take charge when the need arises.
Interwoven is the bittersweet love that grows between Corey and Desiree, skillfully woven, and beautifully written while never straying from the plot of the story. You are rooting for them and hoping they make it out alive and make it together
And as a final twist, we understand the Plebs! (I don’t want to add anything further here and spoil the story for others.) An engrossing story of horror, secrets and ultimately vengeance! This book had me up most of the night and I had to sleep with my light on for the rest of it Five stars all the way! I hope we hear more about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse!
