Where the Dead Sit Talking

Foster. The narrator and protagonist of Brandon Hobson’s novel titled, Where the Dead Sit Talking, is a fifteen-year-old Cherokee boy named Sequoyah. After his mother lands in jail, Sequoyah ends up in foster care. Keeping in mind that our brains are not fully formed until we’re in our twenties, the reliability of Sequoyah as narrator should be challenged by any reader. I find I parked that skepticism as I examined life in a broken system as experienced by a young man wounded by life. Hobson’s prose is finely written, and this novel will appeal to those readers who enjoy literary fiction. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Where the Dead Sit Talking from
