really liked it

Plot driven while intently investigating the psychosis of the protagonist. A setting and array of characters often dismissed as cliche become as real as all those friends you prefer to think you never really hung out with. You did. And you think you're better than them. In the end of "Feast" I realize that not only did I know these characters, I'm nowhere near as strong as them.

Adam What happens when an existential character is grown up in the deep south Mystic, Georgia? . .think football power lifting sex acts with benzied trust fund cheerleaders, violence shoved through the daddy son cycle for 2oo years only getting bigger, and of course the largest rattler round up in the states. As Duffy Deeter says, "Genders right, Mystic done torn its ass this time." Lets get whiskeyed and pump weights, if you ain't thinking murder at end and seeing snakes, you ain't pumping hard enough Poncy!
