9780316049344: The Sad Tale of the Brothers Grossbart

Hegel and Manfried Grossbart may not consider themselves bad men - but death still stalks them through the dark woods of medieval Europe.

The year is 1364, and the brothers Grossbart have embarked on a naïve quest for fortune. Descended from a long line of graverobbers, they are determined to follow their family's footsteps to the fabled crypts of Gyptland. To get there, they will have to brave dangerous and unknown lands and keep company with all manner of desperate travelers-merchants, priests, and scoundrels alike. For theirs is a world both familiar and distant; a world of living saints and livelier demons, of monsters and madmen.

The Brothers Grossbart are about to discover that all legends have their truths, and worse fates than death await those who would take the red road of villainy.

About the Author:

Jesse Bullington spent the bulk of his formative years in rural Pennsylvania, the Netherlands, and Tallahassee, Florida. He is a folklore and outdoor enthusiast who holds a bachelor's degree in History and English Literature from Florida State University. He currently resides in Colorado, and his blog, as well as fan art, news and exclusive content can be found at www.jessebullington.com.

From AudioFile:

This book fits into no neat category. The brothers (twins) wander through Europe during the Black Plague, robbing graves as they go. They're crude and vulgar in action as well as language. They also have a devotion to the Virgin Mary and engage in various unique religious rituals, including cannibalism. Christopher Lane gives a rousing narration. He uses accents with skill and provides depth to the characters. Further, his strong pace keeps the book moving, and his engaging tone highlights the occasional black humor in a way that distracts the listener from the essentially dismal nature of the story.
