    Imago Mortis di Samuel Marolla racconta la storia di Augusto Ghites, detective privato molto speciale Ghites infatti ha il potere di parlare con i morti, di viaggiare nella loro dimensione e affrontare il loro passato Come Sniffando le loro ceneri Attorno al personaggio di Ghites si snoda il caso di un delitto avvenuto nel 1953, nella Milano della prostituzione e della malavita Chiuso in una citt decadente e degradata, affronta passato e presente attraverso le testimonianze di vivi e morti, in un intreccio dal ritmo incalzante che conduce il lettore sino all ultima pagina con il fiato sospeso Marolla racconta la Milano che si nasconde dietro piazza Duomo, la Milano della corruzione, dei tossicodipendenti, degli invisibili Una citt decadente e un corollario di personaggio pulp, spesso estremizzati nel loro ruolo in un escalation di sensazionalismo fine a s stesso.Augusto Ghites un personaggio interessante, che funziona, ma che rischia di somigliare troppo ai grandi del fumetto Troppo spesso, durante la lettura, mi sfuggito il paragone con John Constantine e le tematiche care ad Alan Moore Polemico, spesso troppo focalizzato a fare moralismi sulla societ odierna, un tratto distintivo della scrittura di Chuck Palahniuk I periodi, spesso lunghi e troppo pesanti nelle digressioni e nelle riflessioni del personaggio, senza una punteggiatura forte a mettere dei freni, somigliano al non sense di Isabella Santacroce Flussi di cosci...

    L idea alla base della storia senza dubbio interessante, il farsi di ceneri di morti per vederne i ricordi, in parole povere Molto onirico e surreale, ricorda quasi certe graphic novel mi viene in mente Morrison, per dirne uno.Per lo stile non mi piaciuto, la scrittura, la Milano in cui s...

    I have to admit I was a little nervous going into reading Imago Mortis Paranormal horror stories are not normally my thing I scare easily and tend to gravitate to light and fluffy romances That being said, I agreed to read Imago Mortis because I m always up for trying different genres You never know what you ll like if you don t try it, right The first thing I noticed when I started reading Imago Mortis were the amazing descriptions There were intricately detailed descriptions of everything From the city of Milan to the seedy characters Ghites interacts with, everything is beautifully described While it was helpful in getting acquainted with the setting and characters, the descriptions did distract from the story a bit At times, it was hard to pay attention to what was happening in the story because I was so overwhelmed by the lengthy descriptions of where Ghites was or who he was with As for the story itself, it was definitely creepy A private investigator who communicates with ghosts to solve crimes is one thing A private investigator who snorts dead people s ashes to do so is entirely another The things Ghites sees were so disturbing I m hoping I don t have nightmares from those visions To be honest, Imago Mortis wasn t a book for me It wasn t that it was poorly written The writing was beautiful It was just too creepy for me I m sure there are a lot of horror buffs out th...

    Note I actually read this book in italian, but it s available in english too.TLDR A small book, can be read in a few hours better if all at once, snorted up like the ashes Ghites is addicted to Absolutely recommended even if you are new to the hard boiled noir genre, but don t mind a little creepiness.The first 2 3 of the book got me completely hooked up with its great pacing, the unbelievably vivid depiction of modern Milan and its underground bestiary and with the basic premise of this work which I find very original Although I have to admit I m not a fan of the genre, so take that comment with a grain of salt.The book lost some of that juice in last third, where it gives some weak, kind of sciency description of what Ghites thinks he s doing and a non supernatural scene which I found too unrealistic and stretched I think the book would have gained from a bit supernatural and a bit less tentative fake science, but that s me.Despite this, I ...
