One Bloody Thing After Another by Joey Comeau
I was able to read this book through ECW Press. I honestly don't know what to think. The book was convoluted and almost impossible to follow. I don't know what the author was aiming for, nor whether or not he attained it. The snippets of story left out big gaping holes and I felt lost the whole time. The story is set up in minuscule glimpses into the lives of three different characters who cross paths during the story. This story would appeal to readers who like horror, or gory stories told in a very unique way. Personally, this is not something I would read again. I don't absolutely hate it but I just felt like something was missing. It's probably from what I came in to the story expecting-a fully told story that has a beginning, middle and end. That's not at all what this story contains.
