Read Haunter by Charlee Jacob

A shattered country Just as it seems they cannot go on their god returns to them providing hope and a dream of survivalBut their god has returned in the body of a former American GI and their hope for peace comes in a drug that open. The extreme horror tag gets stapled to pretty much any horror fiction with a high gore uotient Most of the time it s just a sign that the book you re reading is going to feature body parts being disassembled and messed with in ways far creative and lovingly detailed than in your typical John Saul book Which is why most extreme horror is extremely dull after the fourth or fifth book featuring some psychopath treating human beings the way most of us might treat a delicious locally sourced cage free organic roast chicken the shock value tends to fade and there s not much else going on It s not so much horror as a bucket of raw chicken guts being gleefully shoved into your face There s no dread no penetrating insight into the depths of the human soul Just several hundred pages of whoaaa dude check this sick shit outThat s why Charlee Jacob s Haunter gets the four star treatment from this reviewer It s what extreme horror should be Yeah it s got the reuisite rivers of blood and all kinds of lovingly detailed death and bodily desecration but Jacob doesn t just want to gross you out She wants to pull you into the nightmarish hellscape smoldering between her ears Jacob creates a world that exists beneath the skin of our everyday reality She goes into those dark places that we know exist somewhere in the world but prefer not to think too much about or when we do think about them we cloak the truth in half suggestions and decorous euphemisms Child sex slavery Wartime atrocities Sexual sadism GenocideThis is brutal stuff no uestion Not an easy read Jacob plumbs the depths of human anguish and misery She puts her characters literally through hellNone of it is presented in a moralistic or judgmental way I don t think Jacob is interested in making us feel any particular way about her subject matter other than sympathizing with the victims of violence But her eye and voice are undeniably human and humane Her narrative touch is cold and hard but not without soul or feeling Which is critical because otherwise the horrors she plunges the reader into would be unbearable rather than merely horrific Haunter isn t an especially cerebral or literary book the writing is a little too clunky and ornate but it s extremely serious and than a little smart It s one of the few books in this subgenre that don t make me feel embarrassed to be reading itNote Haunter is a sort of seuel to This Symbiotic Fascination another worthy read It s not a true seuel the story stands perfectly well by itself but does continue the stories of a couple of characters from the earlier book

Haunter by Charlee Jacob

S the door to untold horrors Their beautiful nirvana waits only at the end of a road traveled by nightmares It is a world peopled by the bizarre and the unearthly in which damnation and redemption can come in the most terrifying form. The Tyler family is a pretty strange one We learned about Arcan in Jacob s previous book THIS SYMBIOTIC FASCINATION and now it s time to learn about Harry and El HAUNTER is a trippy journey into a post Vietnam Cambodia jungle Jacob is really good at describing grotesue things in new and interesting ways You will cringe a lot if you read this book Harry s birth is particularly vicious and the hermaphrodite rape is rather unsettling The problem is there is a lot of padding and the structure is a mess On the other hand she does something that ordinarily I find a cheap shot but she does it well I m not a big fan of hurting kids in fiction not for any moral reason but because it s so lazy it s almost a cheat Who isn t going to respond negatively to a 10 year old girl getting raped However this happens in HAUNTER but the way Jacob does it is very unusual and it actually worksBy the way you will never forget Harry Tyler There isn t a fictional character like him in all of horror

Charlee Jacob ↠ 5 Summary

From the crumbling ruins of a Cambodian jungle temple to the arid canyons of west Texas exotic demons of the ancient past collide with modern devils Crippled residents in a small Cambodian village are trying to rebuild their lives in. Wowwhat can I say about this book I can basically begin with saying that just about every single one of my most horrifying gruesome nightmares were discussed in this book in excruciating but fascinating detail This book was so gruesome and vile that even I found myself skipping certain parts However Charlee Jacob pulls off all the nightmarish grue and gore very well with her exuisite poetic prose sometimes so enthralling that no matter how gory or horrific a scene was you couldn t stop reading it One of the most horrific scenes I can warn you is the scene involving an electric wood saw and a group of psychotic Aztec wannabees On the downside this book was uite hard to understand and follow at some points It went on and on like a series of broken vignettes but fortunately Jacob managed to expertly tie them all together at the end Overall this was one of the most frightening original and one of the goriest most disturbing novels I ve ever read if not THE most disturbing Bravo to Charlee Jacob for such a good show I look forward to reading This Symbiotic Fascination Word of Warning This book is NOT for the faint of heart Even the strongest of stomachs such as mine will become sour from the grotesue imagery that Jacob throws in your face And the horror doesn t just go up and down in succession from better to worse it gets worse and worse and WORSE and just when you think it can t get any horrible IT DOES However the interesting and captivating storyies in this book make the ghastly journey well worth it So if you think you can handle all the splatter definitely give this novel a go

    Charlee Jacob Haunter Leisure 2003For years I have been searching for the book that would compete with Robert Devereaux's debut novel Deadweight out on the bleeding edge of Most Extreme Horror Novel No one has been willing to tread the same path of degradation misery and despair What anguish must it cause a writer because as we all know to convey emotions effectively the writer must feel them twice as strongly

    I give very few one stars and to be honest I'm only giving this because I just didn't enjoy reading the book I understand what the author was trying to do but the constant barrage of esoteric pseudo vedic babble made it unenjoyable to follow the plot Every time the plot would crescendo it fizzled because the events led
