The other remarkable thing about Connolly's characters is that they are ordinary men. Charlie Parker, and his friends Louis and Angel. What incredibly creative characters with such fascinating back stories. These people wrestle with very human emotions. I can't say enough about this author. Just when I thought I had read some of the best, I discovered John Connolly. I do plan to down load all his Charlie Parker books now.
That isn’t a bad thing really but it made this book feel different to me that than the ones in the series. In The Black Angel, Mr. Connolly provides a history of the source of evil that has permeated the first two books and fills out a mythology of sorts to explain it all. In the first four books we are certainly aware of another plane of existence that keeps bleeding into the real world or at least Charlie Parker’s real world, but the style was mainly gritty noir. The supernatural elements were given a lesser stage as mainly it was the unavenged dead that sought him out and plead to him to bring justice to their killers. Later, once he learns of and starts to travel The White Road creatures less (or more?) than human noticed him and began to seek him out. Well, in this installment they find him and he realizes that his mission might be much bigger than he thought.
I am not sure what this means for the rest of the series. I have no intention of stopping, that is for sure.
Ever since I first started reading this book I have had times where I have wondered about what is real and what is fiction in my daily life. I have had taken nightly walks under the darkest of skies after I have read a few chapters, and I've wondered about the shadows that I've seen at the edges of the forest near my home. More than likely it's just my mind playing tricks on me but I nonetheless am always left with that feeling "what if?."
The overall premise of the story (for me anyways) is the struggle between a person(s) and evil. The nature, origins, and motivation behind such malevolence is often a very dark & contoversial debeate. A debate that should be left to experts because it's a subect that's very serious and dangerous.
Mr. Connelly has written a wonderful and awe inspiring story. As I sit here writing this review, I wonder about the dark.
