OK, Karen! I just finished getting caught up on reviews so I could justify reviewing this one.

Many of my followers likely know of my love affair with [a:Jonathan Carroll|23704|Jonathan Carroll|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1222900262p2/23704.jpg] books. His writing enthralls me, his imagination consumes me, and his creativity and utterly shameless writing style are something I aspire to. Every world hat he creates is something wholly new and unexpected, yet at once so familiar as to be slipped into like a separate skin. Reading his books is an experience, and an addiction. For those who his writing works for, it's a love that will last for a lifetime. Otherwise, you likely despise him. He's a polarizing author.

[b:Voice of Our Shadow|42147|Voice of Our Shadow|Jonathan Carroll|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1386925378s/42147.jpg|968926] is a very strange book. It lures the reader into a false sense of security with its initial linear narrative, its logical, if surprising conclusions. This solid foundation serves as a firm jumping off point. Potential murder, madness, a tantalizing love affair, death... It all winds together and when you look at it sideways, falls into place. Could the ending have been anything but what it turned out to be? No, not really. The more I sit with it, the more sense it makes.

It's like a magic trick. Here is one way to look at things, and now it's a metaphor. But wait, there's more. Have you considered this? Everything is based on the opening chapters, and it's brilliant. [a:Jonathan Carroll|23704|Jonathan Carroll|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1222900262p2/23704.jpg] is one of the strangest authors I've read, but also one of the smartest. He forces you to see through his eyes and to follow his singular footsteps into his dreams. They're odd dreams, frightening dreams, but unmistakably beautiful dreams all the same. ( )

Joseph Lennox is a young, successful writer who is emotionally haunted by a childhood incident in which he somewhat accidentally caused his older brother's death. Against the backdrop of Vienna, the lonely young man meets an older couple with whom he develops an obsessively immersive friendship... I don't want to give too much away, but the scenario (about half way through the book) develops into a fairly tense and horrific ghost story. (although the book cover bills this as fantasy, I would definitely describe it more as 'literary horror'). However, I figured out the 'twist ending' fairly early - and although I guessed at it, I don't think it worked very well. Not all of the events and emotional turns of the characters' relationships make sense with the ending.
This was the second Jonathan Carroll book I've read, and I haven't really loved either of them, although he's quite critically acclaimed. What can I say? (I also read Bones of the Moon) ( )

This may be my least favorite Jonathan Carroll book ever. The whole book seemed like it was getting really interesting, going in a really interesting direction (though ignoring the plot synopsis on the back), and then in the last five pages, he brings it around to a conclusion that makes very little sense in the context of the story. This was only his second book, but it reads more like an early effort than his first (Land of Laughs, which is actually one of my favorites) did. ( )

[Three and 1/2 stars]
Another swift and interesting read from Jonathan Carroll, with another self-centred, intelligent, not-entirely-sympathetic-but-all-too-human protagonist. Not as polished or creepy as Land of Laughs, but with the same facility for description and nuanced study of character and the permutations of relationships. But most of all, I'm actually still trying to digest that ending! I can't decide whether it's as abrupt and out of the blue as it feels (just as the character has no room to think in those crucial last three pages, neither does the reader), or if it makes sense thematically. A bit of both, I think, and the whole book now definitely requires a re-read. ( )
