From the beginning of time the subject of angels has inspired
mankind. In this new collection of stories, Steven Savile
surrenders to their inspiration and invites them to lead him
- and us - into the most haunting reaches of the imagination...
Road is indeed a 'different' kind of book. A collection
of stories, all with a basis around angels in some form or
other, it is a kooky and often downright creepy set of tales
with very dark undertones.
likes to market itself as a Lewis Carroll-esque title for
the 21st century, but it's very much an adults book rather
than for teenagers or kids. Truly haunting at times, the author
delves deep into a dark world offering sad love stories, morbid
tales and touches on occasions on the themes of God, Heaven
and Hell. Its not all religious undertones though, there is
also a gory aspect which personally gave me the creeps, and
the main theme is twisting the idea of the fairy tale on its
head. Think of the Grimm brothers then really make things
can't describe Angel Road as a happy read, and not
all its stories are amazing, however some do grip you and
make you read onto the end even if you aren't provided with
a happy ending. One of the best points were that some of the
stories tied together; not all, however some characters will
pop up from time to time, which definitely adds something
to this set of macabre stories.
not a personally appealing book, but if you like the downright
strange, creepy, and gothic, then you might want to check
this title out.
