The Imaginary Corpse by Tyler Hayes

The Imaginary CorpseThe Imaginary Corpse by Tyler Hayes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was provided a review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Friends are being murdered, not in the normal stay gone for a short time then come back like nothing happened. They are being killed permanently and that has never happened before in the StillReal. Now Detective Tippy is on the case trying to find the monster that is threating all of the StillReal.

Wow this is one of the most original books I have read in a long time. The entire concept of the StillReal and the Friends that live there really impressed me (being written in noir style really got me since I so enjoy that style). The StillReal is where imaginary friends or ideas that have been loved too much to just disappear go. If you can imagine it, it can be found there from a plush yellow triceratops detective named Tippy to a walking hand named Spiderfinger.

This is one of the most original novels I have read in a while. The whole concept of the StillReal is so unique that it was a wonderful escape to a unique land. I found this book whimsical at times, at other times I was fighting back the emotions, and then you have a large fight scene to bring up the pace a little.

This is a very enjoyable book to read that has something in it for everyone.
