Cousin Calls by Zeb Haradon

Cousin Calls by Zeb Haradon. Publication date 31/8/2021

Description

A college student reluctantly attends a family chili cookout that turns into a never ending nightmare. A man desperate for job skills uses a brain implant to help him learn, but it malfunctions and leaves him sexually attracted to shadows. A private investigator is hired to discover who keeps befouling the walls of convenience store bathrooms. Two deer engaged in combat find that they are unable to unlock from one another’s antlers after the fight is over. A single mother spends 2020 battling an evil landlord, a fascist neighbor, national political chaos, and a global pandemic. These are the strange stories told by regulars at the local bar on Christmas Eve, stories which each began with a phone call from someone who announced “you don’t know me, but we’re cousins.”

My Review

A collection of short stories that are all connected with a phone call claiming to be a cousin…..

I don’t know how to describe this book. The writing is something totally different from what I usually read. It’s a little bit creepy, it’s a little bit strange, but it’s also strangely compelling.

The writing is really good, the stories are all different, and before you know it you’ve read the whole book!! It felt a little like stepping into the twilight zone…

You’ll connect with a few of the characters, others will have no rhythm or reason! And wait till you get to the Deer’s story (yup an actual deer!!) You know their stories aren’t going to end well, and you sort of feel sorry for them. But you’ll also be shouting at them not to pick the phone up to the cousin!

I liked the idea of the journal, it holds lots of interesting information, and gave a little bit of a focal point.

If you like the strange…. If you like the quirky…… If you like something that will have you scratching your head and wondering what you just read, then this book is definitely for you.

Hi I’m an avid reader. I also write reviews for the books I read. Come in and say hi. You can find me on GoodReads, Bookbub, and NetGalley 👩🏻‍💻 I also review on an awesome site The Reading Cafe (run by Barb and Sandy) So ........ More about me 🤨 I’m almost 50 🤫 I’ve been married (for 27 years) I have a 30 year old son. I had a daughter, I lost her a week before her 21st birthday 😥 and it’s been 5 years since she’s been gone (and not a day goes by that I don’t miss her) I work as a salad 🥗 chef 👩‍🍳 in a restaurant, haven’t been there long (before that I worked in Tesco) a large supermarket in the UK. I also like to make craft items (and if your really lucky) and I’ll try to post my efforts on here 😉 My daughter loved butterflies (so part of my blog name is dedicated to her) I’ve taken on her love of butterflies (I have several tattoos) so I’m probably going to throw quiet a few butterflies on here 😉 I LOVE PENGUINS 🐧 💕so I’m also going to be putting a few on here (my library holds a few) 😉 <img src="https://d1vbo0kv48thhl.cloudfront.net/images/featured_book_reviewer_big.png"
