Woom by Duncan Ralston
Part anthology, part short story collection, one hell of a ride. Click for full review.
The Lonely Hotel holds many dark secrets... and room 6 just might possess the worst of them all.
Yes ... I know I am late to the party, but I just finished Woom by Duncan Ralston, and now I can finally see why everyone is talking about this book. The 129-page novella reads like a collection of short stories that weave and intertwine themselves throughout the narrative. Room 6 has seen its share of bizarre happenings as Angel shares these tragic and oftentimes insane stories with Shyla, the prostitute he has ordered for the evneing.
Angel knew a lot about pain. Too much. With any luck, his pain would end today. He would turn the clock back. He would start fresh.
This is a trip into the extreme side of literature and there are trigger warnings that come along with a journey such as this ... However, Woom is so much more than one might think at first glance. This story packs a hell of a punch and accomplishes so much in a short time. There is humor ... quite a bit of it, and there is fear, tension, dread, and a sense of fulfilment when you reach the end that takes most authors several hundred pages to deliver. If you are a fan of extreme horror and have not read Woom yet, I strongly recommend that you rectify that immediately.
