Hemmersmoor (READ)

Alani Was Here hDark disturbing creepy fabulous The entire cast of characters are all seriously eually flawed And I think the ending is open to interpretation by every reader which adds another cool element to this book Enjoy YOUR HOUSE IS ON FIRE YOUR CHILDREN ALL GONE is probably not a book for everyone but I found it to be fascinating While this bookas elements of The Recruiter horror it s rooted in the evil we perpetuate against each other A central themeere is the cruelty and indifference practiced by children family members and neighbors All Of This Occurring In this occurring in oddly isolated German village of Hemmersmooor a place where atrocities and secrets go CEO Muscle hand inand The real monsters of the town are the people but I also love The Mad Wolf's Daughter how Kiesbye sprinkles inis wonderful magic with rumors of witches and ghosts appearing from time to time in various locations in and around the village Another intriguing aspect of this novel is the sort of matter of fact narrative of murders and deaths which feels very European in the telling YOUR HOUSE IS ON FIRE YOUR CHILDREN ALL GONE reads like a Grimm s fairy tale brimming with some uncensored madness In August I read a book called The Bone Mother which really was very similar to this book in regard to the European stylings of story telling myth Hawkes Prey Sonny Hawke Thriller horror andistory At any rate I greatly enjoyed this offering from Stefan Kiesbye Even though this takes place in Germany I m sticking it my true grit aka fucked up white trash shelf I guess America doesn t ave a monopoly on twisted Appalachia type folks although there is an element of old world charm ere that is generally missing from my dentally impaired and radially excelled countrymen and women The book opens in The Modern Day A Guy Returns To modern day A guy returns to No Prisoners Star Wars The Clone Wars hometown after years away to find it being overrun by yuppie types but with some ofis old friends still making up part of the local color A girl Husband for Hire he knew growing upas died and An Egg Is Quiet he and three ofis friends are the only people who go to Cinque indagini romane per Rocco Schiavone (Il vicequestore Rocco Schiavone Vol. 6) her funeral The funeral ends like any good funeral should with one of the mourners lifting uper dress showing everyone she isn t wearing any knickers and pissing on the grave There is then a minor physical altercation You d almost think this was taking place in Ireland instead of Germany with these kinds of goings ons The book then jumps back forty years or so to give a series of chapters that each tell a different story about the town and children growing up there The chapters are told from the point of view of the different kids who would be taking part in this funeral either as the mourners of view of the different kids who would be taking part in this funeral either as the mourners as the stiff After the first couple of chapters you start to catch on to the idea that none of these stories are going to end well Not that the kids are going to come to a bad end necessarily but that something fucked up is going to appen to someone in each of the chapters The book straddles the line of being super natural but you never really know and I think you get the feeling that there is nothing super natural going on except that some backward ignorant types take some refuge in believing in ghosts and curses and things li this book was an easy near five stars for meit opens with a funeral scene in rural germany three men and a woman attend the burial of a woman a childhood friend there is an awkward conversation sprinkled with resentment and innuendo at the close of the prologue the woman triumphantly pisses on the graveeveryone s got grudgeswhat follows is a series of short stories alternating between the perspectives of all five characters as they dispassionately recount the orrific to the reader childhood experiences occurring in their deliberately insular village of emmersmoor they are all told in fi.
