Blissful Be the Blind by Jonathon Lukitsch is a psychological thriller following the journey of Henry as he learns to navigate life in the most unexpected ways. Henry is supposed to meet his mother and sister, but only his mother turns up. His mother asks him to check up on his sister. While Laura doesn’t open the door for their mother, she opens it for Henry. Her haggard look makes Henry impulsively offer some valued time together; a vacation. However, nothing comes close to what Henry has in mind compared to what happens next as they journey to a simple yet intriguing town named Raysonville. As Henry gets closer to the town that promises unbidden happiness, he cannot help but worry. Is finding happiness that easy? Where is the catch?
Author Jonathon Lukitsch takes us right into the mind of Henry as he navigates some strange things in the town that is supposed to make you happy, unlike anywhere else. Henry’s character is conflicted which makes him a little hard to like. It is as if he isn’t sure if he should care about Laura or not. Henry isn’t arrogant, but he knows he has his life put together and is practically doing a favor for his sister. The mystery surrounding Raysonville, its people, and the genuinely creepy feel of the place is enough to make anyone edgy. The narrative style is filled with dread and gives the feeling of impending doom. Blissful Be the Blind is the kind of psychological thriller that keeps you up at night thinking about answers and what could that ending mean. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
