Lynch is about a man who has become an outlaw after losing his family while he served for the Confederate Army. He meets a young woman and becomes a settler in the west. This marriage is short lived when he watches his young bride trampled by cavalry with their unborn child and his house burned to the ground-
and then, himself lynched.
he is revitalized from his "inconvenience" by a medicine man and seeks revenge on the men who "inconvenienced" him.
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this story. It is a sort of western Frankenstein story. It was not the type of story I normally enjoy but the plot was interesting, the writing was well done for the most part, a couple of times I stopped and thought, "Wait, where did that come from?" or "How did that come about? Did I miss something?" but without making it an epic 20-40 hour audiobook I thought it was great.
Lucas Smith's voice is-
to say the least. he has a deep, rich, and somewhat grough voice that is perfect for the main character, Johnny Pearl, and the more you got to know Pearl the better the voice fit him. Smith's voice does not lend it self to other voices, however. most of the time it worked out but I had to use my own imagination when he got to the 13 year old boy and female voices...those were however very rare.
There was also a part or two that could have been more suspenseful, more dramatic, if he had chosen to read it differently. It was partly the writing in a spot or two.
If you like zombies, Frankenstein, or westerns, you will probably like this book.

When the book first started out, it had the feel of Stephen King's The Dark Tower. It quickly morphed into a Civil War-era western love story. Even if the book stopped at this point, it would've been pretty great. But it didn't. There was a major twist worked into the story...it was almost part ghost (ghastly might be a better word!) story, science fiction with some old school morality tales to boot. Definitely worth the listen. I generally go for longer books- but trust me, this one will stay with you long after you finish!!
I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.
