The main character in Rene Denfeld’s The Enchanted is a murderer… but also a poet. As he waits out his final days of life in a jail cell, t...

This is a difficult book to review. I can barely explain what it’s about let alone tell you why I love it. The Enchanted is narrated by an omniscient death-row inmate. He’s an unusual guy.

I had heard really good things about the book and I thought I would give the book a try. Much like when I read The Ocean at the End of the Lane, I had to suspend my disbelief when I read the book and just let myself experience the book. While it took me a bit to get into the book, I did manage to ...

Honestly the only thing I enjoyed about this novel was the cover. I wish I could say I was being hyperbolic. The author failed to write a profound, meaningful novel that she seemingly so desperately wished to create. Instead it was a dull tale about a hallucinatory killer. It was also a fiction with...
