InQ Episode 64: "This Book Is Full of Spiders"

Lovers of, this book is for you. Funny, gory, silly, completely off the wall, and of course… full of spiders! This sequel to “John dies at the end” is as funny as the first one but with a different plot all together. Yes, we are dealing here with… zombie apocalypse, spider style!

Two overgrown teenagers, John and Dave, have been transformed forever after taking the “soy sauce”, a very black (and alive!) drug that gives you abilities, but at a price. Sure! now you can see things and other creepy crawlers from other dimensions. But when they start invading people’s mouth and you are the only ones to see them, there’s a problem, especially since the government believes the only way to get rid of the problem, is to nuke the whole town of Undisclosed.

Fan of Men and Black you will love this book. Definitely different, very comic-bookish and amusing. You just need a pretty strong stomach!

InQ Episode 63: "The Tangled Bridge"

This sequel to “A twisted ladder” is just as good as the first novel.

The reader gets reacquainted with Madeleine LeBlanc, with Zenon, with Chloe and the Briar. This time, the novel does not play between psychological abilities and madness, letting the reader wonder how the main characters can do what they shouldn’t be able to do. Rather, it focuses on the briar itself, its intricacies, its depth and the creatures that inhabit it. We meet Maddie’s family and, like in the first novel, the story oscillates between New Orleans of the past, and Louisiana in the present, until both intersect and clash, leaving the reader wanting for more and hoping a third novel will answer all the remaining questions.

A great read, full of mystery, dark and misty, perfect for a good Halloween scare, woodoo-style! :)

This is one of the most intelligent books out there. Creepy but amazing!

If you are looking for a story with a clear beginning and end, don’t bother! This book is more question than answer, more quest than resolution.
It’s an exercise in deconstruction, in reader-response, it’s a labyrinth, an essay on space and time, an exercise in narratology with a voice within a voice within a voice. It is absolutely brilliant!

When Navi and his wife move into their new house, little did they know that said house had a mind of its own… literally!!
