The Red Mohawk Review
The Red Mohawk is an unapologetic and delightful ode to the classic slasher films of yester-year and the beloved cliches of bad b-level horror movies. If you are looking for something mindless that doesn’t require – or even want- you to think too hard, there’s a pretty good bet you’d enjoy this book.
However, if you’re turned off by descriptions of gore and senseless violence or crude sexual behaviors (I think there’s at least a blowjob mentioned every time the owner of the Beaver Palace is featured), this is not the book for you. Hell, if you’re easily offended at all, I’d stay away from this book.
The author doesn’t try to write the next great horror book, or even really to scare the reader. The character development is minimal, the plot has an interesting twist but doesn’t try to be overly complex, and that’s perfectly okay. Not every book has to be Swan Song, or Pride and Prejudice. This is the perfect book for when you’re itching to watch a slasher flick, but you’re someplace where it’s not possible.
What’s not okay is the inconsistent punctuation. If publishers and/or writers can pay enough to have a book advertised through places like Netgalley, surely they can afford to have it properly edited? Thankfully, the editing isn’t so horrible that it yanks me out of the story repeatedly, but, still! I mean, I’m quite happy to indulge in a bit of seedy slasher trash fun, but I expect it to be well-written and edited slasher trash fun!
