When Lacy wakes up dead in Westminster Cemetery final resting place of Edgar Allan Poe she's confused It's the job of Sam a young soldier who died in 1865 to teach her the rules of the afterlife and to wa I really have no idea why this was rated so poorly and my only guess is someone didn’t actually read it because wow it was so much than I could have ever imagined “Open Mic Night at Westminster Cemetery” tells the story of the dead who spend their night stuck in a routine guarded by strict rules when a young woman wakes and finds herself the newest member of their community Already plagued as the outcast since she is considered a “modern” for dying after 1913 she struggles to find her place amongst the group and when the opportunity arises to host an open mic night she jumps at the chance to share her frustrations pain grief and truth with the others and encourages them to do the same with the hope that they can all finally find peace The first part of this reads like something Tim Burton would have a lot of fun directing as we have a group of people from olden times haunting the cemetery in which they are buried and the ways they go about interacting with Lacy our lead heroine is hysterical as it’s all done in a way that won’t anger the main antagonist who runs the place with an iron grip Each character has such a strong personality that it’s easy to love them and once we get to the second half it really blows wide open as they each come into their own and share parts of themselves they’ve kept hidden for so long and each one was so powerful and heartbreaking but offered up a new layer to their current and past actions while also allowing for a chance at forgiveness and healing The ending really sticks with me and once we get the ball rolling I couldn’t read fast enough the way they had these characters strip themselves bare and reveal the innermost workings of their soul while also dealing with the complicated emotions surrounding Lacy’s death and the presence of her grieving family sitting on the sidelines unaware of the ghostly presence was incredible and it really helped solidify this group and what it means to move forward in both life and death If you’re looking for something creepy and in tune with some of Poe’s work this probably won’t be for you but if you want something that I hope one day Burton and Lin Manuel Miranda team up to make a film out of then this will be perfect special thanks to the publishers and netgalley for providing an arc in exchange for a fair and honest review
