Any good piece of literature will speak of characters; of their faults and their redeeming qualities. The reader will know of the characters in a way that convinces said reader to care what happens. Elizabeth Massie does this masterfully in Sineater.

The rediculous notions of backwoods christianity are revealed in a way that is believable and at times even horrific. Massie's descriptive powers are spot on and cringe-worthy. This one reads as a who-dun-it and a coming of age story. It is at times touching and emotional, and still manages to be horrific and gross.

The reader gets it all with this one.
