The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson

Well, I finished this a few days ago and have been holding off on the review because I wasn't sure how I felt about it. I still don't. Very strange story, strange storyline, but it held my attention. A pornographer and porn film star is driving his car and drinking bourbon when hallucinations from the cocaine in his system makes him hallucinate and drive his car over a cliff where it bursts into flames. He is rescued and spends a lot of time in the burn ward of a hospital. The author goes into great detail regarding burn victim treatment. A little too much detail, gets a little long at times. A woman from the psychiatric ward starts coming to visit him and insists that they knew each other before, and are over 700 years old. (Yea, I know). She is released and still comes to visit him and tells him her story, all 700 years of it. I don't want to go into too much more detail, but it was just, well, odd. I will give it 2 1/2 out of 5, because that is half and I am still not sure how I felt about it.

Looking forward to being able to review the book I am reading now, The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder by Vincent Bugliosi.
