As a voracious reader of Contemporary Fiction, I am always looking for the next writer that I can reserve future space on my shelves for, to follow their production closely, always anticipating the next book. I believe I found such a writer. Don't get fooled by it's Barbara Kingsolver-esque title, this book is a feral, twisted tale. From the opening paragraph, I was taken hostage, so to speak; along for the ride that doesn't let up. L.Soren Mobley introduces us to this complex character, Neil, a ...more

Mobley masterfully weaves a tale of angst, descent, and poisoning relationships when the anti-hero can't deal with the many traumas he has faced. You will have to keep turning the pages because you don't know what's coming next. Reminiscent of Pahlaniuk at his best. Definitely looking for more from this author.

Good read.

This book was crazy, but good. It got a little wordy in places, but all in all, I still enjoyed reading it.

A Postcard from Cottonwood is a journey from tragedy to depravity. Neil Enright is a truly desperate anti-hero and it's so hard not to like him. He's suave and charming and highly intellectual. Plus, he's from Baltimore, so I liked that. Well thought out characters and plot. I enjoyed this book a lot!
