Book 34: Salem Brownstone

"Salem Brownstone: All Along the Watchtowers"
By John Harris Dunning and Nikhil Singh

What a very ODD book.

Covered in purple and black linen, with labels affixed to it, it seems to have come from another world... an ODD world.

It reminded me in many ways of the current trends in 'Goth' art- reminicient of Tim Burton and Edward Gorey, and a dozen other popular artists... stories like the Lemony Snickett ones, and just... yes. ODD.

Oh so very ODD.

...and I liked it.

I can't really describe the story here, save to note that it involves a fellow who inherits a house (and a mission in life) from a VERY bizzare man who was in fact, his Father. As he inherits this strange situation, he also befriends a local carnival performer and her many friends as well.

So very ODD.

You just can't describe it any other way.

And I like it.

I gave it a five out of five stars. What a clever, bizzare adventure.
