REVIEW: In the River by Jeremy Robert Johnson @JRJ_Is_Probable @night_worms @

In the River 
by Jeremy Robert Johnson 

One of the novellas in Night Worms February package - absolutely recommend.

Publisher: Lazy Fascist Press
Publish Date: August 2, 2017
Genres: Fantasy, Horror

An intensely moving tale of survival and madness along the river's edge. A father and son fishing lesson become a nightmarish voyage to the sea in this visionary testament to the lengths we will go for those we love. 

My Review:

WARNING: Horror with FEELINGS.  HORROR with feelings.

What a powerful novella about loss.... done in such a unique way that for me borderlined on mythology.  I weirdly got a very tiny ping of Pinocchio mixed in for some reason … don't even know why I'm admitting that - haha but it's funny where your mind goes sometimes when you're reading.
Honestly, I've been eyeing Mr. Johnson's Entropy in Bloom for a while now so when In the River showed up in Night Worm's February package I was so excited.  

This book.  You guys.  It drives you down DEEP into grief, madness, what's real or not real but who cares because you're on this roller coaster of feelings right along with the father.  And when a book can keep you so enraptured from the get go, well, there's something special about a novella that does that.
