Review of Storylandia 3: Dead Girl, Live Boy

“I guess what really intrigues me about “Dead Girl, Live Boy” is the imagery and foreshadowing throughout. One such example is the brother’s reaction to Josette’s divorce: ‘Josh hung up on me and sent me an e-mail the next day that had an attachment about a man who’d stabbed his girlfriend and buried her alive. She’d crawled out of her grave and arranged to break into a house and call 911 before passing out.’ Another grave yard reference occurs earlier when Josette talks about her future ten years from now and how her parents may be dead by then: ‘I know that I will visit their graves often, if for nothing else, to make sure they’re still in them.’ With lines like that, how can you not feel uncomfortable? How could you not want to see the aftermath of this train wreck in the making?”
