One of a handful of books that I found genuinely terrifying. ( )
  unsquare | Feb 16, 2021 |
Sehr bedrückend. Selbst an Stellen, an denen die gesamte Geschichte glücklich und perfekt ist, hängt eine unausgesprochene Bedrohung über der ganzen Szenerie, die das Buch wirklich gruselig macht.
Etwas zu gruselig für meinen Geschmack. Zwar ist das Buch sicher eher dem magischen Realismus als dem Horror zuzuordnen, aber letztlich bleibt alles so ausweglos, so real, dass ich zum Schluss sehr deprimiert aus dem Buch wieder auftauchte. Alles gewonnen und alles verloren. Schade.
Insgesamt extrem phantasievoll, rätselhaft, faszinierende Traumwelten. Auch zum Schluss bleiben viele Fäden unverbunden, nichts ist richtig klar, aber es ist zu Ende.
Irgendwie realistisch, aber schade, wie schon gesagt. Mancher Erzählstrang hätte wirklich einen Abschluss verdient gehabt.
Sprachlich kein Meisterwerk, die Figuren stellenweise etwas flach – gutes Handwerk, aber nicht begeisternd. Dafür sehr mitreißend erzählt, aber eben immer ein bisschen bedrückend.
Gut, aber letztlich zu negativ gestimmt für meinen Geschmack, und manchmal etwas oberflächlich. ( )

Jonathan Carroll comes highly recommended. This is only the second one of his books that I've come across since discovering his existence. 'Sleeping in Flame' (varied mileage) was an inventive and disturbing novel about the dark truths behind fairy tales and legends - similar to 'Bones of the Moon' - except here Carroll deals with mythology of the individual and the landscape of dreams.

Cullen James doesn't seem so different from other young women around her in New York City, but in her dreams she is transported to the land of Rondua, stirring memories of childhood excursions and with an unsettling effect on her waking life.

Of course, I drew parallels to Neil Gaiman's 'Sandman' comics, particularly his "Game of You" story arc which deals with a young woman with a similarly rich inner life to Cullen's. Similarly (I will never stop talking about this) there is another graphic novel: 'Kingdom of the Wicked' that was published later and covers similar ground. This is rich territory, however, and the more the merrier I say, if authors can continue to draw this much psychological gold.

'Bones of the Moon' is an an adventure in fantasy and magical-realism as well as a tragedy. I was not expecting the turns the story took, but in hindsight Carroll was adept at building up to the climatic last third. I won't go further into it, but it was powerful. The search for a fantasy that is intelligent and challenging is often frustrating, but I'm beginning to know I can depend on Jonathan Carroll. ( )

There is something incredible about Jonathan Carroll. No matter how strange the plots of his books are, no matter how absurd the happenings within them are, he makes them seem real. "Bones of the Moon" is an incredible book that ingeniously weaves together the dreams and realities and how they all intertwine. Everything fits, and yet not so well that both stories don't still contain their own hearts and abilities. Everything works in the end. ( )

Young wife and mother Cullen James has the perfect life. Her husband Danny is charming, loving, and loyal. Her best friend Eliot, a gay film critic, is quirky, endearing, and devoted to them. And her infant daugher, Mae, is lovely and fulfilling. Of course, not everything is entirely perfect. Danny’s successful basketball career in Italy was ended by a severe knee injury and the family was forced to move back to Manhattan. Cullen loves her daughter, but cannot help but wonder what the child she aborted before she ever began a relationship with Danny would have been like. And Alvin Williams, a teenage boy in their building, had a psychotic break and killed his mother and sister with an axe—and now insists on writing disturbing letters to Cullen from his institution because he says that she was the only one who was ever nice to him.

Meanwhile, Cullen has begun to have a surreal series of connected dreams in which she and a young boy named Pepsi…her son in this dreamworld…search the fantastical island of Rondua in company with three talking animals, trying to collect the five Bones of the Moon so that Pepsi can become Rondua’s ruler. Cullen is torn between enjoying her dreams and loving her dream-son, and being worried by their vibrancy and strangeness.

When the world of her dreams and the world of her waking begin to coincide in strange ways, Cullen must face the consequences of her past decisions in order to preserve the present life she’s built. ( )
