[ Read Online Alice Isn't Dead ↠´ viking-romance PDF ] by Joseph Fink ☆ I like this eventhan Welcome to Night Vale There, I said it.
I cried at the end It s not even a sad ending, I ve just been following the podcast since the very beginning and can t believe the story is over I loved it I love it The podcast The book Both absolutely creepy, thrilling, inspiring, and wonderful.
Hand upon hand, she thought, upon leg upon heart upon couch upon a day where we made pizza together That s love, Alice That s what it s made of And so what is this Alice isn t Dead Keisha, her wife, knows this to be true, and so she s set aside her life and embarked on a journey across America to find her and bring her home But, this being based on a podcast from one of the creators of Welcome to Night Vale, you might have guessed that the course of this particular true love was never going to run so smooth And you d be right, because there are forces at play here, and as she finds herself caught in a secret war that s run for centuries at least, Keisha starts to realise that there really might not be a way out of this one.
I m a long time fan of Welcome to Night Vale, and I enjoyed this podcast as well though the book definitely skimps on the regional urban myth per episode format they embraced through the first season, before allowing the overarching plotline to come to the front and stay there I m still looking for the book or podcast that focusses on that, and does it well But Alice isn t Dead doesn t disappoint when it comes to that overarching plot It s allowed the freedom to proceed at a leisurely pace, which I think is a good choice when at least your initial readers are going to come from a podcast where you re usually waiting between instalments The writing, too, is unhurried without being lazy, and Joseph Fink writing alone is a delight It s straightfoward prose, and yet there s something captivating about that simplicity and straightfowardness that suggests it s the natural makeup of writing styles it takes a loteffort and thought to seem so natural and uncontrived Entire medieval cities could fit into one of these parking lots At night, in the least lit corners, teenagers learned the best secrets of being an adult, before trudging, the next day, to their cashier jobs in the Target or the cell phone stores to learn the worst secrets of being an adultThe story is relatively straight forward itself, which makes the few subsequent twists eveneffective I love Keisha her anxiety is part of her from the first few pages, and yet even when it almost cripples her, it s never allowed to define her Instead, it shapes her, and there sthan one terrifying confrontation where she snarls that terror at whatever opposes her After all, as she says, when you live your life terrified, you re prepared for fear, you face it every day just leaving the house, and the big bad monsters are going to needthan just being scary It was empowering for we Anxiety Bros, and never crossed into feeling patronising or pandering Happiness is not negated by subsequent pain But it does make the possibility for future happiness seem dimmer Every good moment is shadowed by the question of that moment s longevity.
This was a great book, one I m sure I ll come back to again Whether you ve listened to the podcast or not, if you like your horror and your heroines both to have teeth, I don t think you ll be disappointed.
Alice is dead Or is she From the creator of the wildly popular podcast, Welcome to Night Vale, comes a story about a young woman roaming the highways of America as a truck driver looking for her wife whom she believes to still be alive Along the way she will encounter deformed zombie like men and women, members of a secret government agency and a group of timeless mythical beings.
Like Welcome to Night Vale, Alice Isn t Dead started as a podcast a few years ago under the banner Night Vale Presents Now, creator Joseph Fink brings you the complete story from start to finish in the form of a novel.
I found the first half of this duller than a bag of hammers Sure, there s lots of world building to establish here but the pacing was slower than molasses in January and this is coming from someone who loves good world building When it came time to turn up the horror elements to eleven, I didn t find that any of it grabbed me or put a chill deep into my bones I think this has to do with the fact that I appreciateatmospheric terror when it comes to my scares rather than straight up gross out body horror.
It s not all bad though the novel s main protagonist, Keisha, was someone I identified a lot with given her struggles with anxiety I felt a deep connection with her and her initial inability to stray from the beaten path Even though the whole purpose of taking that job with a trucking company was to find her missing wife, she nearly balks at the opportunity to follow up on a lead because she is afraid she will jeopardize her job As the novel progresses, she becomes stronger anddetermined Fink succeeds in presenting a character with natural progression rather than going with the tried and true, I m a badass now trope.
The history of Keisha and Alice s relationship is revealed slowly over the course of the story and given my connection with Keisha, I found this to be the most enjoyable part of the novel, despite it lacking all the scary bits the book is primarily sold on Fink shows true talent when getting down the intricacies of a long term relationship I won t go so far as to say he s better at this than the Lovecraftian story telling style he s known for his Night Vale podcast is tremendous , but it s definitely something I hope is not lost in the shuffle when everyone is just focusing on the horror elements of the book.
In the end, just like Fink s prior novel Welcome to Night Vale , I m just not digging his written work I think he is an incredible audio storyteller and given that Alice Isn t Dead is also a podcast, I m thinking about going back and listening to that show from the beginning I m guessing that might be the preferred narrative seeing that is how it all started.

To tell the truth, I stopped listening to the podcast after about 5 episodes because it was too creepy and I m scaredy cat, but for some reason I think the story in a book format would work better for me.
and I just want to read a roadtrip book about Keisha looking for her wife Alice, who hopefully isn t dead.
I mean I guess I shouldn t have been surprised when it turned out that Alice wasn t dead.
From The New York Times Bestselling Co Author Of It Devours And Welcome To Night Vale Comes A Fast Paced Thriller About A Truck Driver Searching Across America For The Wife She Had Long Assumed To Be Dead This Is Not A Story It S A Road Trip Keisha Lewis Lived A Quiet Life With Her Wife, Alice, Until The Day That Alice Disappeared After Months Of Searching, Presuming She Was Dead, Keisha Held A Funeral, Mourned, And Gradually Tried To Get On With Her Life But That Was Before Keisha Started To See Her Wife, Again And Again, In The Background Of News Reports From All Over America Alice Isn T Dead, And She Is Showing Up At Every Major Tragedy And Accident In The CountryFollowing A Line Of Clues, Keisha Takes A Job As A Long Haul Truck Driver And Begins Searching For Alice She Eventually Stumbles On An Otherworldly Conflict Being Waged In The Quiet Corners Of Our Nation S Highway System Uncovering A Conspiracy That Goes Way Beyond One Missing Woman I had been excited to listen to this I made it through the fourth CD before giving up.
I think I expected somethingalong the lines of Pines in tension building and weird happenings I thought there d be a touchpoint in the madness to hang onto However, this was vague, random, herky jerky, and somewhat silly It was also boring I was struggling by the second disc so when Melki confirmed that throwing in the towel was the way to go, I threw hard.
The weirdest part of my reading experience with this book was that the only part I was interested in was Kiesha s and Alice s relationship, specifically their married years If the romantic relationship is my point of interest in a book, you know that part is either written really well or the rest of the book is awful.
I m not sure why the main character is a black lesbian, maybe that becomes relevant at some point later in the story but during the parts I read, she got along super easily for a woman of color trucking her way across the United States by herself Her one defining characteristic, her big obstacle and also her superpower, was her anxiety and that has nothing to do with race, gender, or sexual orientation.
I don t really feel like listening to the podcast now, either, because my interest in this story has soured.
This book proclaims from the get go to be not a story, but a road trip Well, awesome I love stories and dream of road trips Bring it, book And the book did To be fair, obviously, yes it s a story, quite a good one at that and yes, as a road trip it s actually quite nightmarish, certainly not the one you d want to find yourself on But what a trip Alice isn t dead She s been gone for a while, buried even sans body , but her wife knows otherwise And sets off driving a truck across the country to find her Only to find a sinister conspiracy and become entangled in a classic good evil battle So yeah, a supernatural war set along American motorways wait, isn t there a show just like that appropriately enough named Supernatural Why yes, there is, record fourteen seasons and counting, proving that three best looking men on tv can hold a lot of sway indeed But no, this book is nothing like it For one thing is heavily estrogen powered, for another well, it s just very much its own thing Completely original Fresh Authentic Heavily moralistic, too, especially once you find out the truth behind the origins of the evil organization, but that s neither here nor there Except to say that the inevitable final standoff just wasn t quite as satisfying as all the mystery leading up to it The leading up was pure magic at times, the author created such a terrific eerily surreal atmosphere, a world almost but not quite recognizable orlike a world hiding behind the shadows, creeping dangerous vicious hungry evil lurking in the shadows That was awesome And having a very realistic, anxiety ridden, protagonist enter this world and fight these shadows was very compelling to read about, muchso than had it been a stock unrelatably brave and valiant lead So yeah, I liked this book a lot, read it in two sittings in one day and was thoroughly entertained throughout Liked the story Liked the ending very much Even the cover on this book is awesome I ve heard of the author before, but having no experience with podcasts, wasn t sure what to expect Well, now expectations are set on high Alice might even get a sequel, not that it needs one But the author certainly has the talent and imagination to scare and delight an audience And this deliciously eerie fairy tale because it is, isn t it, who but an Alice to lead you into a strange dark world hiding so near our own is a terrific read for a variety of genre fans who enjoy their fiction dark and literary Recommended.
I was going to give this 2 stars because there s some quotes I liked but y know what, no, I m giving it one star because I Hate It The description of this sounds so promising, but please don t be fooled, the plot is ridiculous, vague, and incredibly unsatisfying, and the characters are noticeably one note Just.
.
think of The X Files, and how it starts off with some strong mysteries but eventually veers off into we didn t plan this story out that far in advance and the myth arc is going to change season by season depending on how we feel at the time, resulting in no satisfying answers to the questions we raised Now imagine that, but without Mulder and Scully that s about how enjoyable this book is Sometimes a super weird location will be introduced and abandoned within one page Parts of it reminded me of Supernatural fanfiction, but specifically poorly done ones that I would have quit reading Also view spoiler the supernatural serial killers can be defeated by literally beating them to death with your bare hands, and their all powerful leader can be taken out with a gunshot to the head so uh.

that s a choice that was made hide spoiler
