Jun 27, Arun Divakar rated it really liked it In hindsight, the title for this book was rather apt. While I did not think about it at the time of reading, all the stories here are ones where the night is dark and full of terrors. There are things here that go bump in the night and the night itself gives you the biggest bumps of them all. Connolly was not an author whose books I had read before and he did turn out to be good in the early Stephen King kind of way.

Shelves: story-collections , netgalley John Connolly is a man who has the nearly unattainable ability to give "life" to each and every character he creates. The stories in this collection left me literally gaping at the sheer genius of their construction. Regardless of the length of the tale, Connolly is able to create an entire "world" with the strength of his words. I can point out many authors who have written a handful of extremely memorable short stories, but very rarely have I encountered such a discovery in a single collection John Connolly is a man who has the nearly unattainable ability to give "life" to each and every character he creates.
I can point out many authors who have written a handful of extremely memorable short stories, but very rarely have I encountered such a discovery in a single collection of modern works! Just about everything in this collection will mentally take you away and deposit you into their unique "virtual reality". John Connolly is a true artist at what he does. The exquisite language used in this story really transports the reader into a world where virtually anything seems possible.
I found this one beautifully haunting and poetic at once, and it is tied with one other story for my favorite in this collection. This is the other story I consider tied for my personal favorite in this book. Although the material this tale is based upon contains a completely different set of emotions and circumstances, it is one that caught me thoroughly off guard, and I am still unable to get it out of my consciousness.
Before becoming a full-time novelist, he worked as a journalist, a barman, a local government official, a waiter and a gofer at Harrods department store in London . Writing career[ edit ] After five years as a freelance journalist for The Irish Times newspaper, he became frustrated with the profession, and began to write his first novel, Every Dead Thing, in his spare time he continues to contribute articles to the paper, most frequently interviews with other established authors . Every Dead Thing introduced readers to the anti-hero Charlie Parker, a former police officer hunting the killer of his wife and daughter. Film and television adaptations of his works are currently in development; the earliest to appear to audiences was partially based on the short story " The New Daughter ", and starred Kevin Costner and Ivana Baquero. Connolly also tours to promote the launch of his books. Louis and Angel are an unlikely couple whose quibbles and good humour are sometimes the source of comic relief.
