    REVIEW The Monsters Lament 107 The Monsters LamentThe novel centers around petty thieves and a particularly shady historical character The Second World War is coming to a close and everyone is wheeling and dealing in an effort to make the transition economically and emotionally sound At first look the characters and plots appear not to tell a cohesive story but as you are drawn in the author does a good job on intersecting these disparate elements The characters are well drawn and I was compelled to turn the pages which is one of the main criteria I use to judge a book

    REVIEW The Monsters Lament 107 The Monsters LamentInteresting bookour for mewhen you take a time you've read so much about ending of the war throw in a character you are vaguely familiar with Aleister Crowley and a whole heap of other ch

    REVIEW The Monsters Lament 107 The Monsters LamentUnimpressed to be honest I like other books by Edric The Sword Cabinet and The Book Of The Heathen The story seemed fascinating following Jake Arnott's outstanding novel The Devil's Paintbrush also featuring the notorious Crowley But this book is populated by too many cardboard cutouts Crowley talks a lot as one might imagine but there is no sense of menace little depth and not much happens More plot fewer POVs and less dialogue would have

    REVIEW The Monsters Lament 107 The Monsters LamentIt's 1945 near the end of World War II in Europe and this novel is set in the licentious criminal underbelly of London Aleister Crowley is a character and a sub plot and this element did not resonate with me — the voice felt off and his character two dimensional Otherwise the novel is well populated and the setting convincing

    REVIEW The Monsters Lament 107 The Monsters LamentI have enjoyed most of Edric's work and this is no exception The story takes place in London as WW2 is ending and Underworld gangs a reorganising themselves for peacetime There is also an aging mystic who somehow thinks that the death by hanging of an innocent man will help achieve some sort of immortality As with most of Edrics work there is no real plot or satisfactory ending but the uality of the writing keep you engrossed with the characters The ending is somewhat over long but I was happy to mark it with 4 stars because of the vividness of the characters within their scenes

    REVIEW The Monsters Lament 107 The Monsters LamentI can understand why some would not like this book as it follows several seemingly separate stories that are intertwined but the eventual outcome is neither conclusive or possibly even that palatableIt took a couple of chapters to get used to the writing style but once I did I enjoyed reading the story and felt that it certainly emulates life in that a book can really only be a snapshot of life or indeed many lives and the story oftens starts before and ends after the snapshot is takenNot recommended for those who like neat

    REVIEW The Monsters Lament 107 The Monsters LamentHaving read several of Edric's books and really enjoyed the uality and the variety of subject matter I was disappointed with this novel Set at the end of WW2 it creates a reasonable impression of London at that time but the characters are two dimensional and are inconsistently drawn alternately all knowing and ignorant while the inclusion of the real Aleister Crowley is rather a red herring


  • Louise Miller

    REVIEW The Monsters Lament 107 The Monsters LamentI honestly was fairly disappointed with this book The reviews on the book cover portrayed it as well frankly a lot better than it was The premise of the story was good but I felt that it was a bit flat There wasn't really much substance to it No real bite The blurb gave the entire story an air of mysticism and suspense but none of that really came through on the writing I don't like giving negative reviews but this book simply disappointed me

    REVIEW The Monsters Lament 107 The Monsters LamentI don't usually read noir or crime but hey throw in Aleister Crowley and you have me by the balls WWII is just about to end and Crowley is searching for immortality; it depends on the death of a boy condemned for murder on spu

    REVIEW The Monsters Lament 107 The Monsters LamentWhat a bore The gangster stuff was just one big cliché and the stuff with Aleister Crowley a complete damp suib Wont be reading anything else by this author
