Overall, Beyond Black is a hard book to like and embrace. There’s a choked grimness to the characters’ lives. The vitriol is thick. The banality of the evil that lurks among Alison’s spiteful ghosts can be overwhelmingly depressing, long after you’ve stopped laughing and want to turn away in horror.
This story is disturbing and feels like a trip down a very dark rabbit hole. At the bottom of the hole is child neglect and child sexual abuse. The resolution is poor and the two main characters find a strange truth about their lives which does not suggest to the reader that they will ever recover. I would NOT recommend this book.
A darkly funny novel about the odd relationships formed among the living and the dead. A creepy, humorous contemporary, ghost story
This is a superb book, and incredibly creepy.
