Morning Is Dead [Paperback] Review

Morning Is Dead [Paperback]I've read about 4 of Prunty's books so I'm pretty familiar with his writing. One reoccuring theme in Prunty's work seems to be the fear and paranoia of losing a spouse. Another theme is the heartless consumerist society taking over. Jack and Mr. Grin took on the first theme in a close, personal way. Market Adjustment had to do mostly with the second theme and had a larger, almost Lovecraftian approach.

Morning is Dead is somewhere in between.

It deals with the fear and paranoia of losing your wife to someone who looks like you (but more attractive) while also dealing with criticisms of society, law enforcement, and so on. It's a downer of a book. It's not a feel good book by any means. But that's not a bad thing.

Morning is Dead is an emotionally devastating descent into bizarre horror. If Philip K. Dick wrote horror, I imagine he'd write something like this. It's the book to read when you want to feel paranoid about your marriage, your work, your neighbors, your town, and your life in general. Don't worry, though. You'll enjoy every second of it. This is a creepy page turner.

I suppose every honest review needs to have some bit of criticism so I'll try. Honestly, I can't think of anything real negative about this book except that maybe it could have had a few more pages in the beginning to set everything up a little better.

A bonus is the great cover art and the fact that this is number 000 from the new publisher Grindhouse Press. Get this while you can.

Product Description:
Things went wrong for Alvin and April Blue. In a hospital at night, April sits next to Alvin, bandages covering his burned skin, listening to his heart beat on a monitor, and wonders how they ended up here. But she can never imagine the world of insanity, drugs, and crime that Alvin has fallen into. A place where fetuses are used to create simulacra, radiation victims prowl the streets looking for sacrifice, houses are arbitrarily detonated, and the police force is more like a marauding gang of thugs. A place where it's always dark and morning is dead...
