    1 thought on “Cities of the Dead”

    1. I really like the writing style of Jason Reeser in this book of thirteen short stories, all of which are a delight. He brings poignancy to the people in their “new lives” in these cemeteries in New Orleans which makes compelling reading. I’ve always liked cemeteries and it’s certainly brought a new dimension to how I now view them, especially crypts. The scene is set with the opening words in the first short story, "The Wanting Dead":“My first night in the City of the Dead was a real e [...]

    2. I was a First Read Winner of this book and I enjoyed reading it very much. I am not as eloquent as some people when it comes to reviews and for some reason I am having a real hard time expressing my thoughts. It reminded me of some of Edgar Allan Poe's work and it is just as thought provoking. All the characters are vivid and each short story delivers a new message. In my eyes Jason Phillip Reeser has made the Cemeteries in New Orleans more intriguing, I certainly could only walk though them in [...]

    3. Review Comments from the inside cover:"Given how lively and rich the characters are in Jason Phillip Reeser’s debut collection, it seems terribly ironic that they are mostly dead. Even in death though, they yearn for what we yearn for—happiness, freedom from fear, understanding, love, some meager dream of hope or salvation. That such things elude them still is part of what makes Cities of the Dead so powerful and compelling. Floating from story to story, I felt like a man gawking at headston [...]

    4. How to describe this book?It features an array of short stories and, while not all of them are horrific or scary, they all have death and cemeteries as common denominators. Some of them will make you think, others will make you worry but they all will surely strike that chord of "gosh, I'm going to actually die one day, maybe I should reevaluate my life choices while I still have time". But the moment is fleeting and easily forgotten as the story unfolds and the dead and the living stretch and c [...]

    5. i was given a copy of Cities of the Dead from the author to read and review this is a compile of 13 shot stories all taking place in a Cemetery in New Orleans . you are introduced to each of the characters and you get to hear their stores you also get to read how they interact with each other in the Cemetery it was an interesting book it was a change from what i normally read and i did liked it. would i recommend Cities of the dead? yes i would.

    6. I really liked the way this book was written. It is a series of short stories written from a ghost's point of view. Some regretted things they did in life such as isolate himself and others were just happy to have died with their spouse. Such creepy little tales and yet they warm your heart. Props to Jason Philip Reeser and his book.

    7. Some of these stories were more interesting than others, but I just couldn't get into them that much. Not much of a ghost type guy though, so that didn't help. Free from at some point so picked it up and read it.

    8. Didn't bother finishing it. Found getting into it harder and slower than I'd expected. First story seemed really vague and extremely boring to me. Might revisit it later when I've got nothing better to do.

    9. When I started reading it felt like I was in the middle of a story by Edgar Allan Poe but wait, the time frame is wrong. I wish I had read this book around Halloween. Ordinarily, I am not a fan of short stories but I really liked these because they had a common thread that held them together.

    10. I tried to get into the stories but I just couldn't. They didn't interest me and I had to finally give up on them.
