    This novel is filled with wonder and surprise Gorgeous passages evoke a sense of wanderlust, of comfortable dislocation and a sort of longed for isolation It s rare to find a novel that marries the post punk, gothic influences of my youth to the sun drenched, Oaxacan daydream of my current existence Chloe Aridjis, someone skilled in the painterly art of wordscapes and with such an internationally replete experience, deftly explores this odd combination.

    The prose is beautiful the narrative details Mexican goth subculture in the 1980s The first part is set in Mexico City but the two teen protagonists run away to a beach town, which creates a wonderful tension between the geographical setting and the post punk style favoured by our anti heroes The descriptions of music clubs are groovy, and our two goths have fabulous cinematic tastes on a date they go to see a revival of Mu ecos infernales or Curse of the Doll People from 1961 as it s The prose [...]

    On the surface, there isn t much going on here Girl runs away from home to the beach, gets bored But in the swirling imagination of Luisa, where we spend our time in this book, everything has the potential to be the leading edge of an adventure, a mystery She s a capital R Romantic, and is continually disappointed by those around her She listens to goth rock from the 80s, and since I was unfamiliar with this genre, I looked up her albums online and listened to them while reading, which I rec On [...]

    I received my copy of Sea Monsters through Edelweiss.I read Aridjis s Book of Clouds years ago, and I really enjoyed it, so I thought I would also enjoy Sea Monsters I didn t think it held up as well for two reasons.First, there s far too much storytelling and not nearly enough storyshowing What I mean by this is that there s very little development in the characters and plot It s as if the reader experiences the story as a diorama Everything has already happened and everyone is already the I re [...]

    Catapult was kind enough to send me a galley of SEA MONSTERS, a novel about a teenage girl, Luisa, as she becomes obsessed with a strange boy named Tomas and eventually runs away with him to the seaside town of Zipolite in Oaxaca There, the two drift apart, and Luisa becomes enraptured by the strangers who dot the Beach of the DeadBut the main craft of the novel is in all of the strange and mesmeric transgressions of Luisa and the mysterious ways in which strangers shape our lives Aridjis w Cata [...]
