Set in the 1700s, Jack Wolf's 'The Tale of Raw Head & Bloody Bones' is a masterpiece. It tells the story of Tristan Hart, a young man who faces a struggle between two personas. One rational, logical side that craves for knowledge on the human condition, and one darker, crueler side that wants nothing more than to inflict pain and fight the Goblins and Gypsies that haunt him constantly. Wolf's knowledge of the era was deeply impressive, and his characterisation (which I have found complaint about) was spot on for me. A great read for anyone who wants to read something a little more unique and has a taste for Gothic literature and the macabre, as it is quite morbid. I loved it!

Quotes Katrina Liked

“It is in that visionary Madness of the Mind that permits a Madman to perceive Truth in extremis, when all else had seemed lost. Mercifull, indeed, is this worldly Existence, and cruel; and beautifull; and vile, and filled with Pain and greater in its Scale, and in its Depth, and its Complexity than mere Men can ever hope to understand; and profound wonderfull in its Capacity.”
Jack Wolf, The Tale of Raw Head and Bloody Bones
