5.0 out of 5 stars A True Bizarro Master, November 27, 2013

Pedro Proença – See all my reviews
This review is from: Murderland (Kindle Edition)
This was a tough one. A real Bizarro Masterpiece, Garret Cook’s “Muderland” is the tale of Jeremy Jenkins, a pharmacist living in an America that made killing legal in some places. A culture of adoration towards serial killers (called here “Psychopomps”) is born, kids dress up like their favorite pyschos from History. And Jeremy is the most prolific one, but he kills to prevent an invasion from the “Dark Ones”, a race of beings he was taught to believe was going to invade the Earth.
The language is beautifully well-crafted, the characters are well developed, the story has many twists and turns on account of it’s epistolary form, the ending is great. Mr. Cook created a detailed world, and the philosophical raised by this book are compelling and enrich the story. Five stars, for sure.

In this story, Cook creates an entire dystopian culture based on the idolatry of serial killers. Jack the Ripper and Ed Gein are looked upon as saints. Modern day “reapers”, as they’re called, are the ultimate celebrities now. They’re like movie…
