The Grigori | [Joshua Skye]

The Grigori

On a night like any other, a man, a notorious family-values politician, dies in the hotel’s ruined lobby. Suspended from a splendid chandelier, the body is bound with duct tape as if for some sordid S&M scene gone terribly wrong. The man has been disemboweled, intestines spilling from the gash in his belly to the dusty floor. Mr. A is watching, watching.

Publisher's Summary

Mr. A lurks in the derelict grand hotel, a haunt of junkies and their dealers, hustlers and runaways, petty criminals.

On a night like any other, a man, a notorious family-values politician, dies in the hotel’s ruined lobby. Suspended from a splendid chandelier, the body is bound with duct tape as if for some sordid S&M scene gone terribly wrong. The man has been disemboweled, intestines spilling from the gash in his belly to the dusty floor. Mr. A is watching, watching.

“You know, everyone seems to think that angels are these cute little innocent baby-looking m*th*rf*ck*rs but the Bible describes them very, very differently… Angels are angry, crazy and mean as hell. They have four faces and only one of them is human. Their primary job isn’t to save our souls or help us find love. They like to kill and they’re good at it.”

Who is Mr. A? Mr. A is death. Mr. A is salvation. Mr. A is love.

MR. A IS THE GRIGORI.

    Story
    "Things that make you go "huh?""

    The title is misleading. The Grigori is only in chapter 1 and chapter 10. The story is about 5 peoples lives that seem to be separate, but end up intertwined.

    This is not a story you can listen to while doing other intellectual tasks, it will take all your concentration to understand the plot twist. A backstory that should have been an aside or stated memory is brought about at the beginning of the 2nd chapter, creating confusion, and there are other secondary characters we learn a lot about for no apparent reason. Numerous "huh?"s and the need to back up a bit on occasion, but it all comes together nicely in the end.

    I went back and listen to the story again, immediately after the first listen, the "huh?" parts were no longer confusing, but it could have been written better.

    Not a great story, not a terrible story, but an interesting story.

    P.S. The narrator has a meltdown approx. 27m into chapter 6 that was not edited out - it's rather hilarious. Otherwise the narrator did a good job. I would listen to him again.
