revisionador creo que eligen un nombre al azar, pues la falta de letras es algo normal ya Se salva que es de gran tama o su ediciones, aunque en algunas que en este no es el caso ponen la letra tan chica para ahorrar p ginas que necesito mis gafas y una lupa para leer, pero a los 30m mi vista esta fatigada Like most of the young men in their twenties who are the protagonists of Tom Piccirilli s novels, Shad Jenkins receives visits from the dead In Shad s case the ghost is the mother he never knew She died shortly after he was born But a few days before Shad s release from prison, his father calls to say that Shad s younger stepsister has been found dead on Gospel Trail Road Her heart stopped It is as though she simply went to sleep The local police call it death by misadventure, but

to her aid He knows that when he returns to his Appalachian home, he has work to do November Mourns is not as good as The Choir of Ill Children, the Piccirilli novel that precedes it, or that which follows it, Headstone City Its Appalachian setting comes off as a cruder version of the Southern swampland setting of Choir Incestuous couple s and their deformed offspring share the stage with those so wasted on moonshine that their toothless mouths and bloated bodies might just as well belong to a corpse As in Choir there is one ancient conjure woman for the hero to consult, and both Shad and Piccirilli seem to like her But most of the other characters are sketched in as ignorant and gross Shad works to unravel the mystery surrounding his sister s death, but the sleuthing involved reads like a dry run for what will work much better in Headstone City That said, I have to admit that the snake handlers Shad spends time with are as weird, entertaining, and homicidal as you could hope for

it After screaming, Bad, bad, bad booktimes than I care to admit, I decided to just trudge through in hopes that it would get better It didn t The plot is original, intricate, and subtle So subtle, in fact, that it was essentially hidden What really hurt was the knife in the back twist at the end where you learn there is no point, where you find Piccirilli did not follow through on what was hinted to be a phenomenal story, and where my heart was broke and he killed what little hope I had for this book Now surely, when you think of Piccirilli , you think atmosphere, correct Well, if you want to keep those memories intact, just stop at this review and for Thumper s sake keep away from this book Rather than sketch a picture and have the reader use their imagination, Piccirilli runs rampant with the colors and then throws it in your face Except the timeframe I went through half of this book thinking it was set in the early 1900 s only to find out it was intended to be unfolding in the present Ta hell Does anyone still make moonshine Why is it illegal, didn t we discard prohibition Am I the only one in the dark about the boom of moon Beautiful and profound, Piccirilli s style of writing is simply sublime The man can string a bunch of words together and make your head spin It s when you expect those strings to fit together and make sense to tell a story, that they haunt your ever waking moment haunt it with frustration There s no depth to his words and no heart in his dialog, and this above else, will leave you wanting Writing in full circles, it s only at the end of the book that you realize you ve gone nowhere and his words were empty Take for example the main character Shad Now, while in his head he may have these astounding revelations every few minutes, when he opens his mouth he sounds as dumb as a rock Or take his Pa , a guy who is constantly teetering on the line between ignorant backwater bumpkin and Yoda you know, always possessing the one liners of wisdom Sweet mercy, someone get this bi polar cast some medication My rating I give it a 1 For those of you who are on the fence, RUN For those of you who ve already bought it, I mourn for your sanity As reviewed for Horror Web.com Okay Didn t hold my attention well Okay storyline of brother released from prison trying to figure out how his sister died Choppy and just odd Just wasn t that intersting I read it though It neededsomething More creepiness or something I did like how it didn t end all happy. Another winner from Tom Piccirilli If you enjoy his other books, you will love this surreal noir horror tale He is truly an original and I m sad I have read most of his books. Interestingly odd tale from Piccirilli centered around a man who returns to his small village town after serving time in prison to find out how his sister died while he was away The local characters are bizarre, to say the least, and the mystery as it unfolds is sometimes frustrating, sometimes fascinating, withthan a hint of the supernatural or otherworldly at play here The resolution is a bit murky but certainly fits the story and leaves the reader with something to think about, which Interestingly odd tale from Piccirilli centered around a man who returns to his small village town after serving time in prison to find out how his sister died while he was away The local characters are bizarre, to say the least, and the mystery as it unfolds is sometimes frustrating, sometimes fascinating, withthan a hint of the supernatural or otherworldly at play here The resolution is a bit murky but certainly fits the story and leaves the reader with something to think about, which is never a bad thing Not great but not bad either It s a short read so worth the effort even if not Piccirilli s best One of the things that I love about Piccirilli s books is the mood that he creates The atmosphere and pacing comes across so quickly you are practically breathing it in All thanks to Piccirilli s poetic words It s pulp noir poetry.In this book, he channels that poetry through an ex con who heads home to the Appalachian mountains Shad Jenkins is finishing his two year sentence in prison when he s visited by the ghost of his sister After the confirming phone call from his father, Shad heads One of the things that I love about Piccirilli s books is the mood that he creates The atmosphere and pacing comes across so quickly you are practically breathing it in All thanks to Piccirilli s poetic words It s pulp noir poetry.In this book, he channels that poetry through an ex con who heads home to the Appalachian mountains Shad Jenkins is finishing his two year sentence in prison when he s visited by the ghost of his sister After the confirming phone call from his father, Shad heads home with the very clear intention of finding the killer and bringing him to justice During his stumbling investigation, Shad discovers a new Moon Run Hollow Not really a new town but one filtered through different eyes and a new perspective.In my mind, that was the other half of NOVEMBER MOURNS There is the primary story of Shad coming back to find a killer and avenge his sister And then there is the coming home as an adult portion After being gone for two years, Shad is seeing Moon Run Hollow differently His visit stirs up the past, awakening old feelings, discovering things that weren t important previously All while also realizing that his old life isn t right for him any Unsure of what his new life would be, Shad must still get through the parts of his old life that are haunting him He must get past the ghost of his sister For us readers, it s that exploration of the story, the geography of the town and the past, that makes the book so enjoyable The book was off center at times but in a good way Kind of Twilight Zone including a twist ending I could attempt to summarize it as a loving, violent, tender, painful, haunting book it wouldn t do the book justice though Just go read it already and see what I am inadequately explaining
