Review: THE GIRL WHO COULDN'T COME UP WITH AN ORIGINAL TITLE by The Behrg
Every time I turn to a story by The Behrg, I am guaranteed a surprising, challenging, literate read. I truly believe this author, like Lovecraft, channels other universes. [Highest praise, here.] Like the protagonist in Adam Nevill's NO ONE GETS OUT ALIVE, the girl is a feckless, downtrodden heroine who for the life of her, just can't catch a break. Like Stephanie in Nevill's book, mostly it's not the girl's fault: it's a failing economy, parental loss, inability to "get ahead" or do anything more than stand still, and often, to regress. Also, like Stephanie, the girl has paranormal talents.
This is not a story only of what awaits many in an era of collapsing economics. It's a story of depression. It's a story of suicidal ideation. It's a story of life failure, and of "bad luck" tuned up. It's a story not to miss, and to share.
