An oncoming tour bus gradually slowed to a crawl on approaching Jonathan's buggy. Ephraim looked up to see walleyed Redcoats staring down on them. One of them slammed his head to the tinted window in mute incapacitation. The driver's voice came over the intercom: "Don't worry folks, these people are guaranteed nonviolent. Just try to remember: The camera steals their souls. So, if you must, try and shoot on the sly."
Flashbulbs exploded. Ephraim winced. He singled out one of the cameras and pointed. The Redcoat blinked, apparently startled. Ephraim threw him a middle finger and whirled on Jonathan, agitated, motioning: "Where's the stereo?" Jonathan glanced over one of his shoulders, into the boot. Ephraim followed his gesture and, presently, pulled up the battery-powered player. Then he inserted Reign in Blood.
Jonathan reached for the stereo, desperately trying to silence the roar.
But Ephraim, inwhite-knuckled rapture, blocked his attempt with a sweep of one leg and then went on, much to the shock of surrounding motorists if equally geared to the protesters' cheering to tighten the reigns, angle the buggy out into the oncoming lane, and charge.

I tried so hard to like this book! I was more confused than entertained and so bogged down in really useless details that I simply didn't get it. I think I know what it was all about, but again, I'm not sure.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Like Lord of the Barnyard, Egolf¿s brilliant first novel, Kornwolf could be argued to be autobiographical. It has been said by some who knew Egolf, that he contended with a demon constantly - depression. In May of 2005 the demon won. In this novel, the kornwolf is such a demon. It is a demon that empowers its host with enormous power and vision - but at a cost. As a reader of Kornwolf, I have experienced the full force of this power and vision. Tristan Egolf has paid the cost.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
