The following is my October 20, 2012, 4 Star Review:
Book: Where The Dead Go
Author: E.J. Harrigan
Length: Approximately 255 Pages
I was intrigued when I read the prologue for WHERE THE DEAD GO by E.J. HARRIGAN. I had no idea what to expect when I picked this book up. The first chapter was a little confusing to me because the author introduced so many characters in it, but by the end of Chapter one, I was in the author's writing flow and had difficulty putting the book down. When I did have to put it down, I found myself looking forward to picking it back up. I love it when a book keeps me interested like that.
I'm a little perplexed on how to write this review because this book was so different than anything I've ever read before. I hate it when spoilers are contained in reviews, so I'm not going to even attempt to summarize the book because I don't want to give any of it away. I want the reader to be just as captivated as I was at what the author had written. I've never attempted to write a horror novel, but I'd have to imagine it must be difficult especially when the author has a way of introducing bust your gut, laugh out loud humor to it so successfully. E.J. Harrigan wrote some things in this book that were so unexpected, either humorous or freakishly twisted, that I found myself snorting trying to contain my laughter and gasping out loud many times.
If you like the horror genre and enjoy some really great creative writing, you have got to pick this book up. I highly recommend it.
