Kate Says: "Reading Is Fun!"

Like most of you I'm an avid reader. I'm hoping to re-connect with old friends, make new friends, and of course spread the love of reading and writing around to everyone!

Squid Pulp Blues

Squid Pulp Blues - Jordan Krall This book is pulpy goodness like when you accidentally buy high pulp orange juice instead of no pulp and take the first sip and choke on all the pulp because you're not expecting it but then you realize it's really good and you'll never go back to no pulp. That's how this book was for me.

I don't want to give too much away about this book because it's a must read for those fans of the bizarro and noir groups. However, I will highlight some of my favorite parts.

First of all, I throughly enjoyed all the squid connotations. The squid ashtray that kept popping up in every story, squid drugs, and stinky squid winds, were just fantastic.

Secondly, I throughly enjoyed the tale of the Longheads and the ending was really very creepy but really very good all at the same time.

Finally, and my most favorite part of the whole story was Little Bing Bong, The Apocalyptic Donkey. He just rocks in all his many forms he takes on throughout the three novellas that make up one smashing novel, but don't take my word for it. Get a copy for yourself today and give it a try. You'll be glad you did.
