This story is not a thriller. It's a stylized observation of midwestern life in the 90s. Though well written, the story lacks substance....you spend most of your time waiting for a payoff, but are left with few answers.
I was extremely disappointed with the story and felt that this books only redeeming qualities were the descriptive writing and the performance by the reader.

I love John Darnielle's music and also Wolf in White Van, but this his masterpiece.
The blend of unsettling suspense and powerful humanity make this story unique and unforgettable, and John's narrative is intimate and quietly expressive.

A seemingly slow paced novel which struggled to grasp my attention at first.
However, I'm not sure if it was the calming smooth pace of John Darnielle's narration or the consistent carrot on stick type writing which left me wanting to know more.
Definitely worth listening to and I garuntee you will want to know the story behind these characters after Part 1.
i have not being so moved by a book since I read 'god of small things' 20 years ago. This beautifully crafted hymn to the loss of family and home moved me to tears.
disturbing and captivating. but I'm not sure how many people will be satisfied with it.
Intelligent ,interesting and compelling .I don't read much fiction but I loved the depth and heart of this story.
