    Silk is a strong, beautifully written effort, featuring one of the most realistic portrayals of the gothic subculture and the surrounding punk metal industrial etc subcultures there are many overlaps, and the book understands this that I ve read in a novel The characters are interesting and likable, and the book takes its time, letting you get to know them before anything supernatu

    I m reviewing this book late, about a decade after I first read it, but I recall my distaste for this book enough that, in comparison to my love for some of Kiernan s later books, demands some sort of review for some of those who have read Silk and, because of this experience, are not interested in reading anything else.This book reads like the fictional equivalent of white goth punk kids

    Poorly written, with a barely coherent and hardly discernible plot Caitlin Kiernan throws together a group of misfit outsider characters who do nothing but drink coffee, smoke cigarettes, and toss off the names of the cool bands to whom they listen Incapable hands, I d probably like it In her hands, ugh.

    Goth girl s traumatic childhood of abuse may or may not be manifesting itself in menacing supernatural form to both herself and her circle of followers hangers on in this intense, arty, way goth 1997 novel Kiernan is very talented and her imagery burns with a unique energy, often grotesquely beautiful The supernatural aspects are handled through psychological means, flowing from character, avoiding the obvious te

    I loved down spiraling into this storyline There was never a dull moment, and it was packed to the brim with awesome music references that I insisted upon playing in the background as a soundtrack.I was immediately thrown headfirst into 90 s, when I was a mere juvenile delinquent a Guinea pig of antidepressants and adhd meds, surrounded by misfits The scent of body odor and stale smoke and dirt surrounded me as I con
