The sun setting on his farmland home, one dog must guard the chicken coop. At first everything goes well, but into the night, from the darkness appears something that will change this pooch’s life forever.
Ben Lagnese is an incredibly talented author and I adore his work. I have reviewed two short stories of his so far, they are titled Tales of Wonder and Friday Night Jive, these two books blew me away, they were sensational, so I was keen to get started on another short story of his called Karku.
Karku is a unique short story that is narrated by a dog… yes, a dog but it is utterly brilliant! The dog that narrates this story has been told by his owner to guard the chicken coop, and although he first thinks his night will be uneventful, it is not. Darkness soon arrives, and the dog encounters a peculiar, nasty character that wants trouble, and so a fight occurs, and so Karku indeed is a brilliant genius horror story.
Ben Lagnese is a talented author, and he has done a perfect job with not only his superb writing but also his narration of the dog. I have never read a story that is told by a dog, but I wish I have because this one is sensational! It may be unique, but uniqueness is an excellent quality to have in an age when everybody seems to be doing the same thing so thank you Ben Lagnese for being original with your work!
The dog’s narration in this book is superb, and the fight that occurs is gory, the descriptive powers of Lagnese are phenomenal and will terrify you. Karku may only be five pages long but it is brilliant, and its quick, fast-paced story will make for the perfect book to get lost in so please, read this wonderful book!
As I am madly in love with Karku as well as the authors excellent writing, I have no choice but to award Karku a dazzling Five Stars! If you are looking for perfect short stories that will captivate you from beginning to end, then Ben Lagnese is the author for you. His sensational storytelling combined with his original, unique stories make his work some of the best work out there so please, have a look at Lagneses brilliant work!
