    1 thought on “The Hauntings of Hood Canal”

    1. Jack Cady was a natural born storyteller, his voice both down to earth and wonderfully lyrical, weaving a dark tale of how a single violent act can send ripples through the lives of those both directly and indirectly involved. Ripples that ultimately draw the attention of a supernatural force.His characters are characters, in the best possible sense, the kind of loveable eccentrics one finds in out of the way places, the odd ones who make their own way in the world, with their own crosses to bea [...]

    2. Some books I just don't want to end. This was one of them. The characters were so torn, and playful, sad, and fun.

    3. I've decided to quit and return this one to the library today. I'm just not enjoying it well enough to continue. I'm about 150 pages in, and every time I set it down, I just don't want to pick it up again. The characters are okay, but something about the way the narrator tells the story seems off putting. Cady's writing style just doesn't appeal to me, its too slow and some of the words he uses to describe his characters emotions feel awkward. The one example that comes to mind is,the fisherman [...]

    4. This book was ridiculously harder to read than it should've been. I got suckered in by thinking this was a horror story as indicated by the dust jacket, I was hustled.This could've had a great story line with the little offshoot story lines but it just didn't happen. The author felt the need to repeat things the reader is already aware of. How many times do we need to know that Bertha is Norwegian and beautiful? I also swear there were some spelling mistakes at least 2 or 3 within the book that [...]

    5. Nice piece of dark fiction. It's not a horror story in the typical sense although characters are often horrified, it has more of a mythical feel. It all starts with a piece of street justice in the form of a murder of a guy who deserved it, and the repercussions both from the world and psychological. The supernatural events are mirrored by the actual bad happenings of small town, non wealthy persons being displaced and attempted to be hustled by their richer counterparts who feel just superior e [...]

    6. This was really more of a 2 for me, but it gets extra points for the folky style being very well done. If the story hadn't doubled back on itself by constant repetition, it could have been a solid 3. If there had been less pool hustling patter it might have made it to a 4. I enjoyed the quiet horror story aspect and the casual acceptance of everyday magic. Being someone who sometimes travels through out-of-the-way west coast towns, I appreciated the aspects of a small town class system: the home [...]

    7. I wanted to like this book more than I did. To me, the rhythm of the prose was off, almost dub-steppy at times. I nearly abandoned the novel in the first two chapters but the characterization really is quite good.Unfortunately, the story petered out by the end and all the talk of hustling made me tired.The epilogue was outstanding, however. Maybe 3 1/2 stars overall?

    8. It took me a long time to get through this book, I'm not sure why. I enjoyed it quite a bit - maybe my reading of it simply matched the writing style which was rather unique and understated. I don't know that I would qualify this as horror, not sure that it fits any neat little category. It's simply a really entertaining fable.

    9. This book was okay. Not really dull but a little hard to get through. I'm not someone who can leave a book unfinished however so I waded through it.
