prose is vaguely reminiscent of The book of Jonah The bible story describes Jona being swallowed by a is vaguely reminiscent of The book of Jonah The bible story describes Jona being swallowed by a all in one sentence In the same way Jones can say they are now living underwater in the pipes and make it completely believable and compulsive to read That s just how it is There are no uestions askedAt first glance the book may seem to be a story about a man who s mind is stuck in between reality and fantasy but after cracking open the book the reader will soon discover that the novel is actually a story about Daniel s wife The bulk of the book is writen in Daniel s perspective a mix of reality that bleeds into Daniel s nonsensical make believe world Shorter sections written in Daniel s wife s Karen perspective are interjected into the middle of those parts These sections anchor the story in reality and give depth and motion to the the silly and fun bits The sharp stability of Karen in contrast to Daniel s imaginary world reminds the reader of the sadness that Daniel s mind is deteriorating and that Daniel Fights a Hurricane is in reality a tragedy If you were going to characterize the main character of this slight novel as insane which Shane Jones hopes you won t then he is Read the Revived entirety of this hurricane of surreal language in two 2 3 hr hallucinogenic sessions of reading What are you reading I ask because you should be reading this book As I read the previous reviews I thought it interesting that the critiue on Daniel Fights a Hurricane has somewhat been based upon what the reviewer feels a novel should be As I have found with many of the newer younger writers is that that might be the wrong approach If you arentering this adventure thinking it should fit in with a preconception then you will have already missed the boat That said maybe Shane Jones is not for Student Research Projects in Calculus everyone Too bad as I would love to see him become from his talentI found Mr Jones use of perception by the characters intriguingspecially As The Perceptions Tightened the perceptions tightened the same spaces and realities The characters were fascinating and were developed in a most original and uniue way And yes as a response to another review I DO njoy the way the arc of the s SpoliersI will be about the 3000th person to write this but I loved Shane Jones Light Boxes and was hoping for a similar xperience with Dani. To live in a tipi in the woods Daniel battles demons real and imagined As his Love for Imperfect Things ex wife Karen frantically searches for him the long awaited hurricane finally hits and Daniel must find a wa. It is really rather bad Think Light Boxes with a hurricane instead of February insanity instead of beauty failed marketability instead of ingenuityMoments of potential unrealised Was told the POV shifts are not just in the advanced reader copiesitherMay be overt disappointment with potential being rehashed I found this book to be disturbing by its informal base images This is meant to be surreal madness in the span of 211 pages and that s all it is I got through it fast and will say I njoyed the book and if you pick up a copy the best got through it fast and will say I njoyed the book and if you pick up a copy say I njoyed the book and if you pick up a copy best to do is simply agree with the images being presented and don t uestion that feeling you get when you continually say to yourself this isn t normal If Shane Cross had decided to define his world a little I would have gave this book a better review It s written like poetry In many ways the reader has to take a page from Roland Barthes and become the books new author This is the 2nd book from the mind of author Shane Jones and

El That was not the case I wanted to give this a 3 initially but I keep thinking about the story Jones writing is crazy making and I wondered if I should keep going The you get into the story though you truly understand that you are supposed to be driven crazy Daniel is mentally ill and only getting worse fast When we are given Karen s perspective she is his x wife we see how truly out of it Daniel is and how sad the ntire story is his x wife we see how truly out of it Daniel is and how sad the The Right Sort of Man (Sparks Bainbridge Mystery entire story Some of the craziness is disturbing some beautiful and mostly just heart breaking Jones isxtremely talented I don t think he missed his mark with DFaH but it also did not hit dead on the way Light Boxes did I look forward to his future work Daniel is a uick read that provides an interesting unsettling and memorable glimpse into mental illness I received an Advanced Review Copy and this is the review of that ARCDANIEL continues a recent trend in fiction of husbands with vanished wives GONE GIRL THREATS Darkmere etc and just like all the others the story isn t what we think it is Oh sure sometimes the story is of a husband who is too hipstermo and too lost in his search for the virginal goddess that his obsessions and idiosyncrasies take over Or maybe the husband actually killed his wife There s also the wife sneaking off in private to torment the husband In this case Daniel is just batshit crazy to begin with and his wife isn t really lost I m not down with this Here s why part of the charm of Jones s "past work has been the phantasmagoria of it all a style that asks the reader to "work has been the phantasmagoria of it all a style that asks the reader to these bizarre o journies to Et si la maladie n'tait pas un hasard ? embrace these magical places and tonjoy the ride Here the reader is told oh that All of that is just in his head I call bullshit on this because it s like a slap in the face Everything I liked about uintessential Jones is ripped away and replaced witha bad Hallmark Channel movie starring Brendan Fraser as DanielIf it s all in Daniel s head then who the heck cares This is Den of Shadows (Gamblers Den either irresponsible representation of mental illness anxiety or it s asking too much of me to care about it because it is subverting the strength of Jones s writing Look I get that I m probably supposed to say his thinking is so magical despite his level of anxiety This is how he handles it or it s so sad that he missed out on his real life because he didn t see it in front of him until it was too late orven he s NOT the crazy one because he LIVES But I actually have zero Scraps Of The Untainted Sky emotional connection to or investment in this kind of lost puppy character In fact I want to punch him in the face as I m sick to death of the broken hipster dude who is a loser till the bitternd Ug. Y to save them both Haunting mesmerizing and beautifully written Daniel Fights a Hurricane is an affecting original novel of love and loss marriage and friendship by a rising young talent.
