In Hog Heaven by Jim Mountfield

A worthy effort and a good read. The setting might be home for Jim Mountfield, but it is a strange exotic land to me and that pulled me into the story.

Re: In Hog Heaven by Jim Mountfield

This was spooky ghost story, and I love spooky ghost stories. I thought maybe the back story for our narrator could have come sooner; it would have pulled me in a little better and would have grounded me in the story more. A detail or two about what brought the narrator to this village would have been nice too. It would have grounded the story a little more, but the actual ghost story part and the descriptions of the jumpiness of our narrator were great.

The exotic land pulled me into the story and held my interest most of the time. A spooky ghost story with nice description and moving characters that at times came alive to me.


Nice job!
