This was one of some three dozen novellas I found entertaining while on our week long summer vacation thru Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky that I will be reviewing in roughly alphabetical order.
I’ve read the author’s other two excellent books, the full-length novels ‘Jonas Cane: Bloodlust’ and ‘Twistical Tales’, so I’ve come to expect high quality from this author in the same way I’ve always demanded the same Stephen King in all of King’s novels, and “Labor Day” falls right up my alley. It is reminiscent of the kind of intensity you’ve probably experienced with that classic Michael Douglas film, ‘Falling Down’. In “Labor Day,” you find a man at the end of his tether, a ticking time bomb whose trigger occurs on that one day of the year he cherishes most: Labor Day. But then again, just when you think you “get” the story, it rears back its ugly head to surprise you with a deeply troubling twist.
With a literary style that’s as sharp as butcher’s knife, Vandercast’s short story probably deserves an award somewhere. This is as enjoyable as they come. A quick, pleasurable read, and my only regret is it’s not longer. Get a copy.
It is a good book that takes you on a brief tour through the mind of a person with issues, major issues. A quick read, I thought it was worth taking the time to read.
This is not for the faint of heart or seeking any "feel good" vibes. It is rawness in spades. Leave the light on when you go to sleep. If you can fall asleep, that is..
