Review: Falling Angel: A Novel
Falling Angel: A Novel by William Hjortsberg
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book was just recommended to me. As I love the movie which was based on this book, I already read it a few years ago (I just looked at Amazon.De, the paperback was bought in August 2001). The story is a strange one, and, like the movie, not for all. It features grisly murders, blood and voodoo. It is one of the books I wanted to read again, and having bought the movie again on Blu-ray, I will certainly do so. As I have a lot of books more or less unsorted, it was easier, just to buy it again and it helped, that the ebook is quite cheap, both at Amazon and at Barnes & Nobles.
If you are not squeamish, I highly recommend this book, which strays into dark realms: the occult, religious and fantastic.
