"Gay successfully uses [the Southern Gothic] form's ability to unsettle readers, forcing them to see anew darker aspects of humanity." (Washington Post Book World)

Excellent !!!

I have been a lover of fiction since 1961, I was age 10. I especially love what I call "imaginative fiction", which could be a thriller, or horror, or any story where there are no boundaries, the author's imagination is the only limit.
This story is one of these, extremely well written. I will use a stereotypical word, "gripped". This story gripped me.
It takes alot to do that for me, as I am jaded. The author and the narrator are absolutely excellent and I give them both a
"10".

couldn't stop listening

If Mark Twain was a dark soul this would be his style. I loved this story from beginning to end and could not let it go... The narrator is superior in defining each character with his/her own personality down to specific cadences and inflections, what you always hope for, but almost never get. The story is a veritable depiction of the parts detailed and makes you believe they must be real people. If you love a thriller where the good and bad guys are equally dynamic this is it.
