SpoliersI will be about the 3000th person to write this but I loved Shane Jones Light Boxes and was hoping for a similar experience with Daniel That was not the case I wanted to give this a 3 initially but I keep thinking about the story Jones writing is crazy making and I wondered if I should keep going The you get into the story though you truly understand that you are supposed to be driven crazy Daniel is mentally ill and Kakoong, Pahlawan Pulau Awan Vol. 8 only getting worse fast When we are given Karen s perspective she is his ex wife we see how trulyut f it Daniel is and how sad the entire story is Some f the craziness is disturbing some beautiful and mostly just heart breaking Jones is extremely talented I don t think he missed his mark with DFaH but it also did not hit dead Journeys of Frodo: An Atlas of J.R.R.Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings on the way Light Boxes did I look forward to his future work Daniel is a uick read that provides an interesting unsettling and memorable glimpse into mental illness If you were going to characterize the main characterf this slight novel as insane which Shane Jones hopes you won t then he is probably psychotic rather than anxious The image f the hurricane in the first 100 pages r half f the book worked well for me though as a metaphor for an anxious mind The story f Daniel reads like a parable leaving me as a reader trying constantly to figure ut what things were meant to represent and coming up short again and again The narrative shifts between the story f Daniel a pipeline worker with an intense fear f an ncoming Hurricane as he leaves his job and eventually leaves reality to populate his A Stepdaughter In Heat (Daddy Daughter Sex Stories) own worldf strange characters and underground pipelines In the meantime his ex wife Karen searches for him providing with her narrative a sort f baseline for the reader who is trying if that reader is me desperately to ground herself The book made me feel crazy I wanted to make sense f it somehow but the symbols and narratives kept shifting and changing like a Hurricane which is pretty brilliant but not for me I ve seen it described as surrealist and would myself categorize it as magical realism which I never really get It is also heavily laden with symbolic significance which I grew tired f by the end I was much interested in the real world than the ne created by Daniel and unfortunately that imaginary world took In the End over and as the novelette progressedJones book wasn t for me but might appeal to fansf surrealism r magical realism r fans f his ther works which I will probably still try I received an electronic copy f this book for review from the publisher This is the 2nd book from the mind f author Shane Jones and while it may seem confusing at first and at times elliptical it is also ddly his most linear tale and his most accessible to dateShane Jones has a wonderful way with words He can take simple short sentences and fill them with a plethora f meanings Like his previous book Ligh. Ever since he was a boy Daniel Suppleton has been deathly afraid f hurricanes which he fears will arrive suddenly and reduce everyone he knows and loves to trembling skeletons Retreating.

O see him become wealthy from his talentI found Mr Jones use f perception by the characters very intriguing especially as the perceptions tightened into the same spaces and realities The characters were fascinating and were developed in a most The Age of Treachery original and uniue way And yes as a response to another review I DO enjoy the way the arcf the story is fragmented and pieces itself together in its wn timeSadly now that I have finished Daniel Fights a Hurricane I have run ut The Catcher in the Rye and Philosophy of new Shane Jones writing to read And by the way thenly reason I gave Daniel four stars is because I place Light Boxes in the five star category and have to keep a little wiggle room in my ratings This may be the most interesting book I ve read since Poe s The Narrative Seven Sisters New Quilts from an Old Favorite of Arthur Gordon Pimf Nantucket Nobody makes it easier to believe nonsense than Shane Jones not even Lewis Carol What s nobody has the power to create emotion ut f nonsense like Shane Jones does Perhaps the chapter in the book that most captures Jones style f writing is the ne titled Box built from green pipes to which the When a Man Loves a Woman overwhelming theme is this there is no rhymer reason sometimes there is just beauty for the sake f beauty The choppy scattered prose is vaguely reminiscent f The book Keep From Falling of Jonah The bible story describes Jona being swallowed by a whale all inne sentence In the same way Jones can say they are now living underwater in the pipes and make it completely believable and compulsive to read That s just how it is There are no uestions askedAt first glance the book may seem to be a story about a man who s mind is stuck in between reality and fantasy but after cracking Catalogue the Insanity open the book the reader will soon discover that the novel is actually a story about Daniel s wife The bulkf the book is writen in Daniel s perspective a mix Blessed Homecoming of reality that bleeds into Daniel s nonsensical make believe world Shorter sections written in Daniel s wife s Karen perspective are interjected into the middlef those parts These sections anchor the story in reality and give depth and emotion to the the silly and fun bits The sharp stability Shrek of Karen in contrast to Daniel s imaginary world reminds the readerf the sadness that Daniel s mind is deteriorating and that Daniel Fights a Hurricane is in reality a tragedy I found this book to be disturbing by its informal base images This is meant to be surreal madness in the span f 211 pages and that s all it is I got through it fast and will say I enjoyed the book and if you pick up a copy the best thing to do is simply agree with the images being presented and don t uestion that feeling you get when you continually say to yourself this isn t normal If Shane Cross had decided to define his world a little I would have gave this book a better review It s written like poetry In many ways the reader has to take a page from Roland Barthes and become the books new author. Y to save them both Haunting mesmerizing and beautifully written Daniel Fights a Hurricane is an affecting riginal novel f love and loss marriage and friendship by a rising young talent.
