BITS ABOUT BOOKS @CarolineBookBit
| The Blog Tour |
Mark Fowler is an author who has studied philosophy. Perhaps that is why, next to crime novels, he likes to explore other interests in his writings. Coffin Maker is a gothic literary novel with many layers, that leaves you confused and bewildered. What is happening in the book and what does it mean? The unknown territory bordering on our ideas of the existing and beyond induces readers to open up their mind and contemplate their own philosophy on life and death. An interesting and intriguing book! I invite you to follow the blog tour, read the reviews and the insightful posts on the author himself as well as his main character Coffin Maker.
| The Book |
The Coffin Maker lives and works alone in the Kingdom of Death. When he completes a coffin a life on Earth ends. That’s how it’s always been. One day as Coffin sits writing in his journal, The History of Death, trying to sum it all up in one perfect sentence, a note sails past his window. Is he about to gain a glimpse of the elusive Divine Plan that has eluded him for centuries? Is life in the Kingdom of Death about to change forever? There are rumours that the devil is finally arriving in the guise of Colonel Gouge. Rumours started by a priest who has upset the Church by writing a book: Coffin Maker. A book written to comfort a bereaved nephew. A book that appears to prophesy not only the arrival of Gouge, but of the cataclysmic events about to unfold in the Kingdom of Death…
| The Headlines |
Mark Fowler’s debut novel is a compelling gothic literary novel. A few headlines:
“A book which deals with the beautifully haunting and profound subject of death in all its creepy and aesthetic beauty”
“It was brilliant”
“The Coffin Maker is a great character, lovingly crafting the coffins which, when completed, individually signify the impending end of a life on our earth. I really loved the aspects of the novel set in Coffin’s world”
