  3. If it were actually possible I d give this one three and three quarter stars Yep, I m Finicky I know.House of Rain is the story of one man, and the demons that haunt him The horrors of war inflicted deep scars on Gordon s mind, and in all likelihood his life would never have been a joyous one But then he met Katy Her love healed and changed his life She saved him.When we first meet Gordo many years have passed, and his world has changed again He is a troubled and lonely old man, plagued by guilt [...]


  4. Greg Gifune remains one of the masters at creating atmosphere that actually seeps off the page and envelopes the reader completely House of Rain is no exception If anything, it showcases Greg s mastery of this element to perfection His characters immediately become a part of your life There were several scenes in this novella that I had actually paused to look out my own windowsd yes, it was raining Our main character, Gordon, has flashbacks to his days in Vietnam, happier times when his beloved [...]


  5. House of Rain made me want to blow my brains out a good way It is relentless, depressing, and moving Gordon s heartbreaking experiences are rendered beautifully We re never quite sure if Gordon is in touch with true demonic forces or simply his personal demons But the brilliance of the book lies in the opening and closing sections excellent The atmosphere is engaging and the prose vivid This one, as I have found others of Gifune s works, lingers.


  6. I like everything that I have ever read from Mr Gifune and House of Rain is no exception The writing is vivid and the main character really pops off the page The story line flows somewhat disjointedly which was ok because it did circle back around, but as a previous reviewer Mike stated it kind of left me hanging at the end I don t require closure for every story especially shorts , but would have liked a few answers for this one There is no way around the fact that Gifune is a master of atmosp [...]


  7. Is there anything Gifune writes that isn t great Where does he get all this stuff the other writers would kill for I can t really do justice to this without giving too much away and I m just not going to do it even with a spoiler alert This is a story firmly rooted in reality A profound story of love and horror that also freely plays with the supernatural but only so much as is needed to drive home the stark and profound beauty of the story and the bargains we all make that can t be taken back I [...]


  8. I am such a big fan of Greg Gifune He writes what I would classify as intelligent horror That s not to say other horror is unintelligent he simply makes me think on a deeper level His stories are not wrapped up and tied up there is a lot to think about and there is always plenty left to your own imagination and interpretation Other writers I would classify similar to Greg Gifune are Lee Thompson and Gary Braunbeck.Over the last couple of years, Gifune has made his way on to my must read list I f [...]


  9. I d been looking forward to the release of HOUSE OF RAIN, and it lived up to my expectations It is typical of Greg Gifune s moody, atmospheric, suspenseful, what is real and what is not style I was completely drawn into Gordon s experience, perceiving it vividly through him And what a heart wrenching experience it is throughout.Gordon is an older character, and his physical limitations play a key role in his outlook, what happens, and how certain things happen That whole aspect his age related l [...]


  10. I enjoyed reading the story and love the way Greg writes I liked the atmosphere he created while telling the story But when I was finished with HOR I felt a little unfulfilled I had questions that were not answered, that I wish were and maybe I was expecting to much from this book I know he can t write books like The Rain Dancers or Dreams the Ragman all the time That being said, a excellent story overall, but with a few ends not tied I gave it 4 stars.


  11. I m only giving this a 3 because the ending didn t do much for me Everything else was pretty awesome The visions, the occult and supernatural happenings whether they happened or not and the fact that this old man was a bad ass I just think there was much left to the imagination, but that s how Gifune writes Overall, I love his writing and how he wrote Gordon as a struggling, emotional human being.


  12. i have many books by greg gifune on my kindle but this is the first one i have read that left me scratching my head I liked the book i just think i was left with a few too many questions at the end I don t believe there is anything that Gifune writes that isn t amazing he is extremely talented and has some very unique ideas.

  14. It isn t all that often I find a book with an elderly person as the protagonist So, right up front, I was interested in reading Greg Gifune s new novella, House of Rain.Gordon Cole finds himself an old man isolated in a city he longer understands, long removed from his time in the Vietnam War, and grieving the recent death of his wife The streets seem to grow violent every day, as he witnesses the brutal beating of a homeless man by a group of teen boys, from the window of his tiny apartment Wi [...]

  17. I received an advanced ecopy of this book for free from NetGalley, for the sake of reviewing.This book is a rather excellent exploration of dark pasts and emotional writing The plot has a few little turns to await you, and while they never reached a level of jarring surprise I d want to warrant five stars I think it deserves a solid three because of the intricate tale of darkness and loneliness that it weaves It was enough to pull me in and want to know , to piece together the little pieces that [...]


  18. I love Greg f Gifune all his work is painful, soulful and at times very difficult to read.but always memorable Gordon Cole a tired and lonely ex Vietnam vet in this short story that moves between fact and visionor does it I did enjoy but not my fav Gifune.

  20. House Of Rain ist eine sehr tiefgr ndige und nachdenkliche Geschichte um den einsamen Gordon, der den Tod seiner geliebten Frau einfach nicht berwinden beziehungsweise gar akzeptieren kann.Das Buch ist mit seinen knappen einhundert Seiten beinahe als lange Kurzgeschichte zu betrachten nichts desto trotz schafft es der Autor, in diese leider zu wenigen Seiten eine sehr bedr ckende Geschichte entstehen zu lassen, die sehr ernst und auch etwas deprimierend ist Gifune ist dabei aber ein wahrer Meist [...]


  21. Gordon Cole is a masterfully woven, fully dimensional, elderly character stricken with pain and powerful memories Gordon struggles to process a gang beating up a homeless man along with evaluating his life Gifune is so skilled at setting up Cole that the reader is compelled to follow every word waiting and reacting like a concertgoer to a demonic heavy metal riff.While there is very little story in this novella, there is ample characterization and atmosphere, all of which are excellent For those [...]


  22. This is the story of Gordon, an elderly Vietnam vet devastated by the loss of his wife he is both surrounded by and lost in old and crippling memories After witnessing an attack on a homeless man by three youths, he beings seeing things, and as he begins to think he is going mad, old secrets start to surface, secrets he would rather stayed hidden What happened that night so many years ago at the club, and what has the incessant rainfall got to do with it This started quite quietly, so the ending [...]

  24. House of rainThis was a moving and creepy atmospheric read I enjoyed this story immensely Greg really conjured the psychological drama and emotional aspect of this story beyond my expectationsI recommend this story to anyone who loves psychological horror and supernatural horror genres.


  25. A strange book, but a VERY good one Not a lot of plot overall although that s not really the point of the story It s a character study and an atmospheric tale of grief and possible madness Some first rate writing and a character you really care about for the short time you re with him Highly recommended.


  26. Can t recommend.Too much bouncing back and forth made this an aggravating read trying to piece everything together Killed any chance at fluidity.I was glad to finish for the wrong reasons.Definitely not as good as the first one of his I read.


  27. For a horror book I thought this would hook me I was left with many questions at the end and things that wanted to know.Sometimes it bored me and for a horror book that s not supposed to happen.Still if you like horror books give this one a try.
