Thank you to Nikki at ECW press for sending this copy for review!
It's been a long time since the last line of a book had me laughing so hard I was crying. Flat-out howling with laughter--so hard I couldn't catch my breath.
Granted, it could have been because I was overtired--I WAS up until 4am reading this book. Yep, it's THAT good! (And also short.)
One Bloody Thing After Another is weird and wild and just plain awesome.
I can honestly say I've never read such a touching, horrific book....It was a pleasure to do so!
Jackie was a fascinating character. Insane, sad and REAL, but Charlie and Mitchie were my favourites. That old man and his old dog wormed their way into my heart at the word, 'ghost'. ;)
This is my first Comeau book, and now I'm dying to read more. His writing is wonderful. Evocative and slightly twisted.
Perfect for me, really.
Of course, I'm a strange person, so this book won't be for everyone. If you like weird, off-beat horror/humour with a touch of LGBT romance, this is right up your alley!
