it was amazing

One of the most charmingly raunchy books I have ever read. Violent, foul-mouthed, and downright salty, I absolutely adored SMONK. Has to be read to be believed.

I'm not going to go into details (and I assure you, they would be gory details), but if you like a really well-written, yet violently absurd yarn, this is the book for you. The period style of the writing only illuminates the graphic nature of the scenes.

After reading this, I immediately went out and bought two of Tom Franklin's other books. Whatever my highest recommendation is, I give it to this novel. Read it. I dare you.
