it was amazing
Read from January 08 to 10, 2012

Wow. Fast paced at break neck speeds, “Termite Parade” starts with a visit to a dentist office and not a routine check-up, it’s unplanned , a visit to fix a mouth full broken teeth. Like he did with his first novel “SomeThings That Meant the World To Me”, Joshua Mohr instantly drags the reader inward to a moving, at times disgusting, dark and funny novel. This time around the novel is told through three different perpestives of a relationship that’s all sorts of messed up. Very few novels I have read are as daring and at the same time well grounded, if that makes any sense, as “Termite Parade” is. Grounded as in all the elements are there, that make for a great novel. Just read the damn book it’s fewer than 200 pages, is a quick and rewarding read. A read that leaves you wanting more while being satisfied, a read that will make you wonder if the most flawed of us and can be redeemed. Joshua Mohr so early in his writing career has found his own voice it’s one that’s fresh and will be heard by more and more readers, so read one of his books now before they become too hip for school.
