Latest review of He Who Shall Remain Shameless….
4 out of 5 stars, from Mary C. Moore:
He Who Shall Remain Shameless is an adventure that is absurd, yet fascinating. Ewald’s narrator is obsessed with finding the almost-famous and expanding their online presence. The twist? Most, if not all of these people are dead. Watch and learn as the narrator interviews the ghost of Harriet Quimby, the first female airplane pilot, and Linda Gary a voice-over actress for the cartoon She-Ra, and others, as he attempts to steer them towards what he believes is their salvation online. With the help of his trusty laptop and the talking/self-aware smartphone “Ishy”, Ewald’s narrator travels the world, drawn by the ghosts of the could-have-been-famous, as his nemesis, the strange and mysterious Meritocrat, attempts to stop him around every corner.
As bizarre as this world was, I found myself enjoying the collection of stories more and more as I read deeper and deeper. Once you understand what the heck is going on, it becomes absorbing. The best part is, all of the ghosts in Ewald’s world are real characters that you can look up and read about. Who knows, maybe their online presence is thanks to the narrator and Ishy [….]
I would recommend this to fans of absurdest literature as well as up-market fiction readers. It was quite fun!
