Review: Bottled Demon
Bottled Demon by Matthew Rossi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It might just be the crowds I run with, but I'd like to think we all know that person in our lives who's a bit overread, who knows a lot of bizarre, obscure facts, who has the best bookshelf in the region, etc etc etc. If that person wrote a book, Bottled Demon would likely be it.
The book is a ton of fun - there's a lot of obscure stories, fun conspiracy theories, weird occult stuff, the strange and bizarre that you always get inklings of but never think to follow up on. It's all wonderful, and the essays are short enough to read one or two and then put it aside. It's not so much that it was a difficult read that it took three weeks to finish, but because I took my time with it.
The structure is solid, and the significantly long bibliography at the end is worth it's $3 Kindle price alone. Really a ton of fun.
