After completing When Demons Snap, I missed it , and had to go out and buy Gene Kalmes other book God is an Indian Giver. I felt like I had become one of the characters in When Demons Snap and that I had intimate relationships with all the other characters. The Author has unique style moving from 1st and 3rd person that not only gives the reader insight into the characters and their relationships, but also allows for objective social commentary. Gene Kalmes has an innate understanding of human nature and social systems that is sometimes displayed in scene tenderly. Others times the reader is allowed to witness the harsher realities of life, but yet the story always maintains its sense of humor leaves the reader at least chuckling if not laughing out load. I would tag this book a surreal action thriller mystery but yes a comedy. Scenes are oft surreal absurd and HYSTERICAL. BEST for me however is the SUSPENCE. Often at the end of the chapter I was left hanging, what’s going to happen... More > to poor Kelle? And what about his dog Magic? There is a genius in the foreshadowing that creates a prolonged suspense, and several times when I was returned to the cliff hanging edge of a previous chapter I was ,BIT BY Suspense and ......always caught by the element of surprise. Gene’s voice reminiscent of an old time Bogart movie but also a satirical .. It always has a funny bite; a bite I recognize. My father grew up in Hannibal Mo. the birth place of Mark Twain . And yes this book with its social commentary , human insight and that funny bite reminds me of the works of Mark Twain and Huckleberry Finn.< Less
