it was amazing
bookshelves: owned-books, horror

"He has a thousand names, and each one catches but a part of him.....He is the Harvester, the Sickle Man. The Night Walker and That Which Devours. The Skullsie Man, the Star Reaper, the Grinning Bone Dancer. He is the Black Rider, the great beast below all and beyond all......Death? Death is but a term."


Three things I loved about this book.

1. The writing - you know it's good when you forget you're actually reading.
2. The era and place as a secondary character - dustbowl America, feel like I've been there now.
3. A satisfying but somewhat interpretive ending - I know I'm going to be thinking about this one for a looooooong time.

Well done Mr Bennett, I'll be back for more.
