WowThe BLACKWATER series was something to digest It was both very epic and very odd The story chronicled the lives of the Caskey family members in Perdido Alabama from 1919 1970 Michael McDowell is a writer from the south and yet he's not really a southern writer other than his use of y'all and gone meaning going to There is no vivid or colorful prose that we would expect to find from southern authors like Ron Rash William Gay and Pat Conroy McDowell has a very matter of fact delivery that on the surface sometimes might appear dry but it is somehow uite engaging I actually read the new 788 page single volume hardcover edition of BLACKWATER recently published by Valancourt Books Despite its doorstopper size I never found myself disinterested in the book nor did I ever have the urge to abandon it I know BLACKWATER is also classified as horror but the horror elements were sprinkled in here and there We get Elinor and Frances Caskey who appear as entirely normal women but who in fact are shape shifting river monsters We also get some ghosts thrown into the mix but we never really learn any details about them I found the handling of these supernatural elements to be rather confounding and too ambiguous I was really hoping for scares as well as background involving the river creatures and the ghosts McDowell didn't have to spell everything out but I would have loved to have known about this vague horror thread that was woven into the lives of the Caskey's For me BLACKWATER is a little hard to rate because I felt it was a mix of 3 5 star sections I also thought the ending was a bit too abrupt and I think an epilogue would have been uite fitting Despite my perceived shortcomings of this sweeping epic I very much enjoyed the story and history of Perdido and the Caskey family In addition McDowell does manage to pull off a few instances of delicious uiet horror I liked The Amulet and The Elementals better but BLACKWATER definitely had its moments too 35 stars overall

I’m finished Gutted My journey is now over and I want nothing than to restart book one and meet the Caskeys againThanks to this novel’s title and cover I knew how Michael McDowell ended his magnum opus but didn’t think it would be so emotional or well wrought or damn scary The scares herein are some of the most effective I’ve read in a while maybe because over the previous five books these characters and settings were so well developed What can I say Rain is a pitch perfect finale to one of the finest stories told in horror fiction one I’d love to see as a miniseries perhaps on Hulu or Netflix This is a saga I won’t soon forget and I already want to visit Perdido once
