Trudi Yay! I'm so glad you loved this one. It blew my mind, I tell you :)

message 2: by Tressa (new)

Tressa I get a high whenever I read 5-star books. Don't you? :-D

message 3: by Maciek (new)

Maciek I liked this one a lot for the reasons you mentioned. I thought that it felt authentic and had a real atmosphere and a sense of place. His short story collection is also very good.

message 4: by Tressa (new)

Tressa Can't wait to read his short stories.

I love authentic characters where nothing they say is forced.

message 5: by Tim (new)

Tim Asbury Gonna have to check this one out!

message 6: by Maciek (new)

Maciek Great review! You need to read his short stories. His novel was excellent, but he's also a great short story writer, a skill which not all writers posess today.

message 7: by Tressa (new)

Tressa Tim, you'll love it.

Thanks, Maciek. I usually don't (can't, lol) write a beefy review weeks after reading a book, but this one was easy because it did stay with me. I don't seek out short stories, but I love his characters and have Knockemstiff on my Kindle to read.

message 8: by Maciek (new)

Maciek I do seek out short stories, and that collection was a great one. You'll enjoy it. Also, you need to read Last Days. That was a terrific find!

message 9: by Tressa (new)

Tressa Oh, yeah, I remember you praising Last Days. Remind me to read it after Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer, lol.

message 10: by Maciek (new)

Maciek Sure thing. Hope you'll enjoy the Lincoln one. Let me know how that is. I hope Abe is being a badass.

message 11: by Tressa (new)

Tressa I'll let you know. Just remember when you see me on GR posting that I'm done with Abe, make me read Last Days.

message 12: by Maciek (new)

Maciek Oh, I will. I'm good at pestering people.

message 13: by Tressa (new)

Tressa You don't say!

message 14: by Trudi (new)

Trudi Awesome review Tressa!!! This will definitely be a book I revisit at another time -- and yes, can't WAIT to see what Pollock comes up with next :)

message 15: by Tressa (new)

Tressa Thanks, Trudi. I'd like to read the rest of Arvin's story.

message 16: by Trace (new)

Trace Tressa this sounds great! Putting it on my list now!!!

message 17: by Tressa (new)

Tressa I loved it! Hope you like it, too.

message 18: by Trace (new)

Trace I'm only 26 pages into this but I am loving it already!

message 19: by Tressa (new)

Tressa Glad you're loving in, Trace! It does suck you in. Lots of gross parts, though. Ugh.

message 20: by Trace (new)

Trace haven't come across any gross-ities yet (is that even a word? lol) but am enjoying the atmosphere of it. I can tell it's going to be sickening though! I seriously wish I had more time in the day/night to read!!

message 21: by Tressa (new)

Tressa It's a true page turner. I need to read some of his other books.

message 22: by Trace (new)

Trace just finished this one and loved it Tressa. :-) now I'm onto Reapers are the Angels.

message 23: by Tressa (new)

Tressa Good to see it was a 5-star read for you! It certainly had a lot of original stories in it, and I had no idea what was going to happen next. I liked Reapers, too.

message 24: by Tompopaageo (new)

Tompopaageo I love that picture of him. He looks mean...until you notice the bunny rabbits on his porch :)

message 25: by Tressa (new)

Tressa LMBO! More serial killers should carry around concrete bunnies.

message 26: by Tompopaageo (new)

Tompopaageo Haha there's nothing like a garden ornament to add to your street cred.

message 27: by Tressa (new)

Tressa Or to make people suspect you less.
