The Resurrectionist Review

The Resurrectionist by Jack O’ConnellThe Resurrectionist by Jack O’Connell is not a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat; it’s a book that opens the throttle full bore and slams you back into your chair, if not the wall behind it. It is an utterly bizarre wild ride, not unlike what Sweeney, the father of a comatose boy, is dragged into by Buzz Cote, the leader of a biker gang. What could possibly link a boy in a coma, a biker gang, and a comic book about circus freaks together? Nothing short of Limbo. The Resurrectionist is a wildly imaginative, gut-wrenching book about the metaphysical nature of identity. Part Michael Chabon, part Elmore Leonard, and all Jack O’Connell, this book will change the way you look at chicken boys forever.
