Inhaltsangabe

Gritty noir fiction, mind-bending fantasy, and medical thriller combine in a new novel by an author dubbed the "cyberpunk Dashiell Hammett".

Sweeney is a druggist by trade; Danny, his son, is in a persistent coma, the victim of an accident. Hoping for a miracle, they have come to the Peck Clinic, a fortress-like haven in a post-industrial city overrun by gangs. Doctors there claim to have resurrected two patients who were similarly lost in the void.

Gradually, Sweeney realizes that the cure for his son's condition may lie in "Limbo", a fantasy comic-book world into which Danny had been drawn at the time of his accident. Plunged into the intrigue that surrounds the clinic, Sweeney searches for answers and instead finds sinister back alleys, brutal dead ends, and terrifying rabbit holes of mystery.

Full of puzzles and surprises, Resurrectionist is a surreal, gothic meditation on identity, the nature of consciousness, the power of stories, love, mad scientists, circus freaks, and ultimately forgiveness - both giving and receiving.

Kritikerstimmen

"The Resurrectionist - a brilliantly tuned, mesmerizing labyrinth of a quasi-real world as only a master artist could draw it - will jazz you, floor you, grab you and shake you and leave you hung out to dry in that world. A brilliant break-through novel." (James Ellroy)

    "Lucy in the sky with diamonds"

    A very strange book, full of pseudo-mystique stuff that is never believable, certainly never makes sense and gives me the impression of beeing written on a drug trip.

    11 hours of waiting for the bizareness to make sense while listening to half-baked thoughts on the state of consciousness (especially of coma-patients) and thinly-veiled critisism on stem-cell research. Come on: A mad scientist who kills (or pays someone for it) embryos (and maybe the mothers) to 'harvest' stem-cells to wake up coma-patients. The waking up procedure also seems to be a deed of evil, because it supposedly 'changes' the coma-patient who will not wake up the same person.

    Overall a very disappointing experience and by far the worst audiobook i ever listened to.
