An amazing book but one that show cases an author that will become much more than he currently is. this book was a fast paced ride through rural America gone sideways on faith. every thing moves at breakneck speed with a tinge of the ludicrous about it. At point it gets a little muddled or the message seems obscured but over all it is great. I loko forward to great things from Mike Magnuson; he riminds me a little bit of Tristan Elgof

funny well-crafted tale of sin and redemption...drought and conflagration in boring middle America. A little bit Flannery O'Connor, a little bit Chuck Palahniuk.
