Mockingbird

( 15 )

Overview

Miriam is trying. Really, she is.

But this whole "settling down thing" that Louis has going for her just isn't working out. She lives on Long Beach Island all year around. Her home is a run-down double-wide trailer. She works at a grocery store as a check-out girl. And her relationship with Louis—who's on the road half the time in his truck—is subject to the piss and vinegar Miriam brings to everything she does.

It just isn't going well. Still,...

Overview

Miriam is trying. Really, she is.

But this whole "settling down thing" that Louis has going for her just isn't working out. She lives on Long Beach Island all year around. Her home is a run-down double-wide trailer. She works at a grocery store as a check-out girl. And her relationship with Louis—who's on the road half the time in his truck—is subject to the piss and vinegar Miriam brings to everything she does.

It just isn't going well. Still, she's keeping her psychic ability—to see when and how someone is going to die just by touching them—in check. But even that feels wrong somehow. Like she's keeping a tornado stoppered up in a tiny bottle.

Then comes one bad day that turns it all on her ear.

    If a nasty, foul mouthed antihero is who you're looking for-- that's what you'll find in Miriam. There's no moral to the story, no shiny vampires or love stories, nor filler pages of sickening sweet sucrose description of how the world was made a better place because of something that happened in fiction fiction land-- No-- It's more of a shoved up against the wall with a tongue down your throat after a few drinks on a really bad kind of day kind of book, or a after fight sex workout and eat ice cream in bed feeling... Awesome. Can't get enough. Not always meaningful, but worth it. Delicious...

    The novel itself was an enjoyable enough read, but the ebook formatting was atrocious. So many grammatical and spelling errors, not to mention one passage which seemingly contained actual editing notes. It seems that the ebook version was lifted from an early proof version on the author's computer. Very disappointing and frustrating.

    I suggest purchasing the paperback copy.

    Not as wild a ride as the first...

    But still an awesome book. Think what I really missed was Miriam out on the road, those were the bulk of my favorite scenes from Blackbirds. Also miss the way the time/flashbacks were done. Solid plot, but a bit too murder mystery for me. Hope there is a third though, with more of Miriam's on the road adventures. Style still kicks ass.

    If you'd like to read a tightly plotted noir thriller, and strong language doesn't curl your hair, allow me to recommend this book. The story grabs you from the first page, and fans of tales with a twist will enjoy the screaming left turn that happens about two thirds of the way through. It's a great read and the time you spend with Miriam Black will stay in your brain after you've closed the book. Highly recommended read.

    Horrible would be an over reach for this hatchet job of a "story". I may be under reviewing this so called book because I threw it away after getting half way finished. In 50 years of voracious reading this is the first book I have thrown away in the middle of reading it. (I have thrown a few away after finishing them, even ceremonialy burned a couple that were particularily offensive) But this is a first for me. Shallow, thin, characters in a ridiculous plot. It's a perfect low budget horror movie vehicle that would go straight to streaming. (No one would pay to print DVDs)

    A high-octane thrillride that burns with Bukowskian poetry and won't let you go

    It's impossible to stop reading this book. It sinks its talons in and won't let go. Really. I stole every minute I could find to get back to it and finish it.

    But better than just being thrilling, the book builds upon and deepens the themes of its predecessor, Blackbirds. There's a resonance to this book that's both haunting and beautiful, and at times Miriam Black's thinking slips into lines whose profane beauty could easily fit into a poem by Bukowski or, more appropriately, Crow by Ted Hughes.

    But Wendig is such a disciplined writer that such moments of wordy goodness never slow the narrative or even pull you out of the book; they simply deepen Miriam's character and make her even more compelling.

    This is a unique mix of Urban Fantasy meets Pulp Noir built with a superbly crafted plot. Read it. It's a blast.
