This is my second read by Joe Hart, the first being Outpost. This time it's a novella, but still a quick read.
The Waiting. It's a haunting tale about a guy who's lost almost everything- his wife, his son's mental faculties, even his job. It's when he's sent to a cabin, through a friend, to stay and stabilize from his life's tragedies that things become phantasmic. Evan can't get his mind together, especially when he believes he can turn back time to make things right with the help of a grandfather clock that's gathered a horrific past...
This book is pretty cool. It's not as good as the other story- I almost feel as though Outpost is a piece to this tale. Hart's got something with cabins on lakefront property. I loved how Evan was slowly driven mad- the hauntings, his repetitive ramblings and experiences that can easily drive the reader, right along with him, into madness. In a good way! It moved a bit slow, but not enough to make me quit the story. On the contrary, it was just enough to keep me interested.
I can't give this one a five-spec rating, like his short story, but I can say it was a decent read. I hope to grab another by this guy and see how it fares. On to the next read!📚
