This isn't a great book but, if I did the math right, Cave wrote this novel when he was 93-years-old. I like that.
I really wanted to like this book. I've read a lot of Cave's short fiction, and though it varies, I have enjoyed a lot of it. Alas, not so with The Restless Dead. The main characters were thin and uncompelling. Despite their reputation for profound menace, the evil Everol clan were too doddering and ineffective ever to seem like a real threat. And it never became clear what the monsters were, where they came from (and why), nor why the hero's magic symbols kept them at bay. Then there was the st [...]
After the disappointing Lucifer's Eye, honestly didn't expect much of this one and was pleasantly surprised by it. Not great and it wouldn't do to overthink the plot here, but solidly entertaining, Cave once again returns to voodoo with this story and the man is certainly qualified to do so having actually lived in the Caribbean for years. There are some genuinely spooky parts and the ending (ulimate revenge ending) is particularly scary. Very quick fun read. Any genre or voodoo fan would probab [...]
I hate to give a legend like Hugh Cave a mere 2 stars, but this one just didn't grab me. I'm not much of a fan of his voodoo stuff, which is really weird, because he actually lived in Haiti and had first hand experience on the matter. However, the idea for this book was really cool. The imagery was awesome. The execution didn't do much for me.
The voodoo angle was convincing and detailed, the story silly and not remoteley scary or horrifying. But, as another reviewer suggested, the book was written at the end of a prolific career when the author was in his nineties. The cover is the best part of the book, but the illustration and the back blurb are misleading.Pretty much a waste of time. Not recommended.
Read this too long ago to remember very much about it. Picked it up on a whim. Something with Voodoo? There was some violence involving a mother and son that really put me off and the writing on the whole was just okay.
I liked this voodoo horror story. I especially liked how Jeff helped the Everol family get rid of the creatures that were haunting there home.
