This book with a very long title will have readers laughing throughout. A compelling blend of fiction and fantasy, it takes readers to a very unique and unusual setting, one that will remind fans of Tennyson's Lotus Eaters of another dream world with a powerful spell. The plot may seem very straightforward and simple from the beginning, but readers soon understand that there are many twists in it and that the narrative is character-driven. Three men, Kurt, John, and Mac, are escaping after a successful bank robbery. They stop in a village called Musicarolina and it is here that their troubles begin. They might have been lured into a place they were not supposed to be, a very strange place with strange, nice people who easily burst into song. But then when night falls, they begin to understand that they have been trapped in a deadly place with demons, criminals, and monsters. How can they begin to negotiate for an exit and can there be any exit for them? MUSICAroLina: A Tale of Monsters, Demons, Criminals and Fabulous Musical Numbers! by Daniel William Gunning is simply spellbinding.
There is a lot to enjoy in this debut. First off, I loved the author's creativity; the originality of the story will startle many readers. One gets the feeling that one is reading a symbolic tale, but it feels so real because of the wonderful character development. When I turned the last page of the book, it felt like a dream and I couldn't help but turn back to re-read some stanzas of the beautiful poem in the very first pages of the book. The characters are awesome and readers will love the way they reveal themselves through natural dialogue. From the very beginning the conflict seems to develop around three men who just want to get as far away as possible from a crime scene, but it quickly intensifies and becomes transformed into a nightmare. What does Musicarolina signify for the characters and the readers? Perhaps this could be the toughest question to answer after reading this fabulous work. MUSICAroLina: A Tale of Monsters, Demons, Criminals and Fabulous Musical Numbers! by Daniel William Gunning is a great success and I must say I have never read anything like it before.
