Aia kekahi mea like ʻole e pili ana iā Dathan Auerbach's Kanakaʻino: kahi moʻolelo paʻakikī kēlā e hoʻokomo i nā huaʻōlelo.

ʻO ia paha ke kiko o kāna inoa ponoʻī o ka hewa kahi hale kūʻai liʻiliʻi o nā kaona. ʻO ia paha, no ka poʻe o mākou e noho ana i nā wahi kaiāulu o ka Hema, ua kamaʻāina loa nā ʻano. ʻO ia paha, ʻo ke ʻano waena, ʻo Ben, ʻaʻole ia he ʻano heroic ʻano o ka protagonist ʻike pinepine pinepine ʻia i nā puke moʻolelo weliweli o kēia wā.

A i ʻole, he hui pū paha ia o kēia mau mea āpau e hui pū e hoʻoulu i ka weliweli i malihini i ko mākou ʻike ponoʻī e makaʻu ai i kēlā mau helehelena a me nā wahi a mākou e kipa ai i kēlā me kēia lā.

Hoʻonohonoho ʻia i ka panhandle Florida Kanakaʻino, haʻi ka moʻolelo o Ben. I kekahi lā ua lawe ʻo Ben i kona kaikaina, ʻo Eric, i ka hale kūʻai me ia e ʻohi i kekahi mau mea.

He lā maikaʻi ʻole ʻo Eric i ke ala a nā keiki liʻiliʻi āpau e hana ai i kēlā me kēia manawa a me ka hopena i ka hoʻā ʻana o ka huhū a me nā manaʻo ʻeha. A laila hiki mai kahi mea weliweli.

Hāʻule ʻo Ben i kahi ʻeha poʻo hina a pani i kona mau maka i kahi manawa wale nō. Ke wehe ʻo ia iā lākou, ua hala ʻo Eric, akā ʻaʻole hele wale. Ua nalowale loa ʻo ia a ʻaʻohe mea ʻē aʻe i ka hale kūʻai i ʻike.

Pākuʻi i mua ʻelima mau makahiki.

Ua lilo ʻo Ben's stepmother i mea hoʻopiʻi, ʻaʻole hiki ke haʻalele i ka home. Ke hāʻule nei kona makuakāne ma hope o nā bila, a ʻoiai ʻo Ben ke nānā nei no kona kaikaina i kēlā me kēia lā, pono ʻo ia e ʻimi i kahi hana.

ʻO ka hoʻolimalima kahi wale nō?

Kuhi ʻoe: ʻo ka hale kūʻai loa kahi i nalowale ai kona kaikaina i kēlā mau makahiki i hala.

Iā ia e hui pū ana i nā ʻōpili o ka pō e mālama ana i nā papa a hoʻoponopono pololei i nā hōʻike i ka pō, hoʻomaka ʻo ia e ʻike i ka nalo ʻana o kona kaikaina ʻaʻole paha ia he hanana ʻano ʻē i ka hale kūʻai maʻalahi me kahi luna paranoid. ʻAʻole, aia kahi alo, kahi manaʻo, e heʻe ma luna o kēlā mau papa like a hūnā i nā aka i waho o ka maka.

ʻO kahi moʻolelo ʻo Auerbach kahi poʻokela a nani loa o ka haʻi moʻolelo Gothic o kēia wā. ʻO kāna mau huapalapala, e like me ka mea i ʻōlelo ʻia ma mua, he ʻoiaʻiʻo maoli nō, a ke noho nei ko lākou ola i kēlā me kēia lā i ka lepo a me ka nele.

ʻIke maoli ʻoe i ka hou ʻana o ka hou i waena o kou mau poʻohiwi i ka wā e pā mai ai ka wela mai kahi lā i hoʻopilikia ʻole ʻia a ʻaʻa ʻole ʻia e ka makani ʻuʻuku liʻiliʻi ʻoiai ʻo Ben e piʻi ana a iho i nā alanui kaona liʻiliʻi e pili ana i nā alakaʻi i lilo i enigmatic e ka lā.

ʻIke mākou i kona huhū a me ka makaʻu iā ia e kū pono i nā kāne a me nā wahine i hahau ʻia e ke ola no ka manawa lōʻihi i kū ai kā lākou ʻano kamaʻilio i nā huaʻōlelo a me nā hana kolohe.

Hāʻule mākou i kāna paranoia ke kū ʻo ia i mua o ka pahu, ka mea make pahu pepa make i ka lumi o hope o ka hale kūʻai i like ko lākou walaʻau a me nā kaniʻuhū me he mea lā he kanaka.

A, i kekahi manawa, ʻike mākou i ka huhū o Ben i kēia mau mea āpau.

A ma lalo o nā mea āpau, hoʻopulu mālie ʻo Auerbach i ka mea heluhelu me ka weliweli mau a ulu.

ʻO kēia ke ʻano o ka puke moʻolelo aʻu e ao aku nei i ka poʻe ʻaʻole e ʻai i ka noho hoʻokahi. Aia kekahi mau mea i loko o kēia puke e pono ai i kahi manawa e hana ai ma mua o ka neʻe ʻana i ka mokuna aʻe ʻaʻole wale e hōʻalo i ka luhi, akā e hōʻoia hoʻi ʻaʻole i nalo nā kikoʻī.

Aia nā mea huna i waena o nā huaʻōlelo a me loko o nā manaʻo o a pau i ko Ben ola ʻana, a i kekahi mau manawa, ua koi ʻia wau e kekahi ikaika ʻike ʻole e kōkua iā ia e wehe iā lākou.

Ua hoʻohālikelike ʻo Auerbach iā Stephen King. I ka ʻoiaʻiʻo, ʻoi aku i ka hoʻokahi i hoʻohālikelike KanakaʻinoʻO ka hoʻomālamalama, a manaʻo wau he kani maoli kēlā hoʻohālikelike.

Ma kahi pae hohonu, subversive hou aʻe, akā, e kāhea wau i ka hana a me nā ʻano i nā ʻuhane o Cormac McCarthy a ʻO Poppy Z. Brite, a manaʻoʻiʻo iaʻu ke ʻōlelo wau ʻaʻole wau i manaʻo e kākau wau i kēlā mau inoa ʻelua i ka ʻōlelo like.

Kanakaʻino: A Loaʻa ka puke hou ma o Amazon a me nā mea kūʻai puke nui ʻē aʻe i nā mana paʻa lima a me nā kiʻi kikohoʻe.
