    like a 4.5 or so I hate star ratings Based in part on an old Catalan legend, this novel is set in 1918 as the Spanish Influenza is raging across the United States The action takes place in the very small town of Incarnation, Texas, where a young boy has been left alone for various reasons and finds himself facing a legend come to life He has seven nights to guess the real name of this horrific cre

    Interesting labyrinthine tale that suffer from a clumsy immature first person narrative perspective and an unsuccessful attempt at dialect The entire novel is a framing story with seven tales that may or may not be real I found the first person perspective, the clumsy plotting at times and the dialect distracting Certainly Beelzebub can come up with somethingclever or profound than Close only counts

    Intense, labyrinthine and frightening story with a real soul to it I ve red it 5 times cause I m working to adapt it as a concept album with my band and each reading has made me discover new links between all the seven tales and the main story This is great art if you like horror stories with real depth Highly recommanded

    2.5 starsThere are some intriguing ideas in this unusual horror novel set in early 20th century Texas during the first World War and the worldwide outbreak of Spanish flu, but the execution is so amateurish, the dialogue so laboured and sometimes laughable, that it s hard to get beyond the words on the page to see and feel what the author is trying to convey The first half of the book is considerably be

    I bought this on the strength of the author s superb debut novel The St Perpetuus Club of Buenos Aires which is an excellent, superbly constructed and very gripping read, too This story is steeped in traditional lore and dreams, it glistens with atmospheric detail and it certainly didn t disappoint It s not visceral horror thank god but a slow suspenseful very unsettling strange tale It s not light entert

    I found the author s writing quite poor and the story simpler than I was expecting The tales told by the Muladona were, as another reviewer mentioned here, ofteninteresting than the story itself Towards the end of the book though I found it overall to be improving, and thus my rating is 4 and not 3 stars.
