Language Barrier is a work of fiction in the humor, paranormal fantasy, and magical realism sub-genres, and was penned by author Russell Cornhill. In this whimsical, dry, and highly amusing work, we met protagonist Daniel Nichols at the tender age of seventy-three. When Daniel is told by the three angelic voices in his head that he has been chosen to rid the world of all evil, this faithful fogey embarks on a wild quest to discover who the real heroes and villains are of this dimension and countless others. What results is a fast-paced novella filled with hijinks and mirth for anyone looking to escape reality for a while.
Author Russell Cornhill has crafted a wry and sardonic novella which fans of both the surreal and the sublime are likely to enjoy. One of the particular highlights for me was the crafting of the dialogue, which serves to strongly characterize Daniel and his three angels right from the start, but also delivers some really cutting one-liners and moments of dry genius. The novella begins at a very sudden point of action and never lets up from there, delivering some witty yet bittersweet home truths about old age, whilst also providing an adventurous and twisting plot which would be impossible to predict from the outset. I was also a fan of such an underrepresented hero and the ways in which Daniel, who has some quite unlikeable qualities, becomes an endearing hero the more the story goes on. Overall, I would definitely recommend Language Barrier to fans of quirky fiction with a bite as good as its bark.
