really liked it
Read from July 16 to 23, 2011

Loved this one. Very reminiscent of William Gay and Jim Thompson with maybe some Geek Love mixed in. I'd thought I might be giving it five stars, but the first half of the book felt more adventurous and with sharper prose, then those things kind of tailed off near the end as it became obvious these narratives were going to converge expectedly. Still, I'm glad to see DRP getting some great press, especially for subject matter like this, which doesn't hit the mainstream often enough, but is right up my southern gothic alley.
