    One thought on “In This House, We Lived, and We Died”

    1. I'm only giving this 5 stars because I know for a fact this is the greatest book ever written. Because I am the most fantastical author on the east coast in recent years to employ the method of "writing good shit".

    2. “Every step we take is meant to be taken, and thus nothing is ever a mistake” Where do I begin…… what do I say? Welllet’s start with how I felt after the beginning few pages.Huh….holy royal mind-fuck.“WHY DO YOU STAY WHEN THIS PLACE IS DAMNED?!!!”The story of an old, broken, lonely man trying to make his way through the afterlife, searching for answers, and getting back the love he once knew of. His journey is one that grips the readers' imagination and keeps them ensnared with n [...]

    3. This is the first book that I have read by this author. In This House, We Lived, and We Died is about a man's journey through his so called "after life". The book starts in a common neighborhood that anyone could live in but then you are transformed to a supernatural place that defies the laws of nature and physics around you. It is mythological adventure which is a combination of Homer's The Odyssey, Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray, and Ernest Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea. With the au [...]

    4. What a book!It takes a while to adjust your mind set to the unconventional writing style and layout of pages of this book.It is most definitely an epic tale. Remiss of Dante's Inferno and Homer's Odyssey I guess and, for me, it also had an element of Will Self's How The Dead Live about it.Although all of those references are probably unfair to Dave Matthes as his book is most different to anything else I have ever read.It is in some ways nothing more than a love story but in most ways so much mo [...]

    5. This book is a great tale of a person who is searching for answers and happiness. Exactly what we do while we are alive on this planet. We search for answers and happiness. But this book supplies a unique twist on that quest. I won't spoil anything for any of the readers by telling you what that is.I enjoyed the book and found myself unable to put it down. There are so many twists and turns that I didn't want to leave the world the author had painted with his words.Personally I greatly enjoyed h [...]

    6. ***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***I will start by saying that Dave Matthes style of writing is one that I have never seen before and it takes a bit to get use to it. The various fonts, bold, free style, and even upside down writing (that is a little tricky to read on a kindle) add to the story telling and give the characters depth and profound meaning. You must approach this book with an open mind as the Author takes you on this journey through the afterlife of one [...]

    7. This book was a doozy. I'd like to start out by saying that this book is BY FAR the heaviest work of literature that the author has produced and that I'm honestly left speechless, The beginning was slow going and quite difficult to navigate. But like an onion I was able to peel back the layers one by one and like an onion it made me cry; because its absolutely beautiful. This book is about a man who's wanderlusting through his subconscious and through his "afterlife" searching for answers, I fou [...]

    8. "There couldn't be a verb, an adjective, a noun, a pronoun profound enough to literarily liberate the emotion, the feeling, the thought and power felt below my feet as I turned onto that forested bypass, leaving the city and suburbs of my post-adolescence behind."That is a very long sentence.
