Konn’s writing style is a richly colorful as his storyline. To wit, ‘Eventually I spotted Skip at the tail end of the huddled people. He was easily noticeable as the only guy who had a mohawk; with no gel, it simply appeared as strands of long black hair parted to one side with a shaved undercut. Plus, Skip also wore a hoodie vest with a tank top. He was a little more punk rock than the rest of the crowd that night. I strolled over to him. He was chatting up a girl who could pass for a high school student. Thinking optimistically, though, I hoped she was just a freshman university hooligan out to party, not someone underage. Skip was probably nearing eight years on some of these girls, but like me, he was single. Unlike me, though, he was easily lured in by girls wearing skimpy outfits and fluttering their eyelashes.’
Konn’s main character is Logan who narrates this memoir like tale, reduced in the synopsis as follows: ‘WARNING: DO NOT CONSUME.
If you’re reading this, then you did not take the above warning seriously. In that case, you’re probably as stupid as me. I’m Logan, by the way. I didn’t pay attention to any warning signs either. Being an unemployed deadbeat in Edmonton with no family and getting dumped by your girlfriend for her best friend can wear a guy down. All I had was my cokehead buddy, Skip, to cheer me up. Surprisingly, my precautionary tale was not caused by either Skip or the drugs. Let’s just say a drunken make-out session with a pale girl by a dumpster, who was supposedly pronounced dead earlier in the evening, can leave you mentally jumbled up. A good motivator to figure this scenario out is having robed cultists stalk you, asking where the girl is. Is this an ill twist of fate? Did I bring this on myself? Is there a reason behind my misfortune? Is the moral to not make out with spooky girls behind dumpsters? Hell if I know...’
Strange – very strange - and very engrossing, especially for those readers who dote on sci-fi and fantasy. Konn Lavery has it down - a fast and fascinating read. Grady Harp, September 16
The book is easy to read, captivating, and although the plot is less realistic but the reactions of characters seem real and that’s what I liked about the book. The scary and creepy scene descriptions brings out the creativity of author quite well. You can read this in one sitting and its gripping enough to be tempted to do so. All in all, the book is itchy and filled with some suspense, flows well with respect to events and plot is engrossing!
