Joe R. Lansdale – Freezer Burn

Posted by Dirk under: books .

I really like Joe R. Lansdale.   I love his Hap & Leonard series of books.  I didn’t really like this book though.

Parts of it were ok but there a few scenes I wish he had cut out completely because I just don’t want em in my head and the end wasn’t really satisfying to me.

Basically the story of a complete loser who finds himself at loose ends after his mother dies and he can’t forge her signature to keep cashing her checks.  He attempts a robbery that goes horribly wrong and takes it on the lam, where he ends up hiding out in a carnival full of freaks.

He falls for the carnival owner’s hot wife and she leads him down a dark path that ends badly.
