This is the second book of Brian Evenson's that I've read, and the first one that was a novel. I like his short fiction better, where his breathtaking ability to create an atmosphere of bleak insanity isn't hampered by having to put a plot along with it. Not that the plot of this book is bad, it's just that there isn't enough there to really satisfy what I want from a novel. I'll probably appreciate it more as I think about it over the next few days. I loved the idea of two separate cults devoted to amputating limbs, and I cared a lot about the protagonist's fate. But I'm mostly just calling this a good (not great) book. I still cannot wait until I get my hands on my next Brian Evenson book, but I'm going to make sure that it's a book of short stories.
