Realistic, Gritty, Outstanding!
Books by Edward Abbey, Jim Harrison and Cormac McCarthy. The characters and the language. Not so much the scenery or landscape discriptions.
Daniel Woodrell is the only writer I have ever read who accurately uses the language of southern Missouri. Having grown up and presently living in a very small town in southeast MO myself (Eminence, MO about 50 miles from where the author resides) I am thrilled to read books written in the language of my home. I highly recommend all of Daniel Woodrell's books to anyone who is interested in peering thru a window into the modernday or historic Ozark hillbilly world.
I recommend this series to anyone with a pulse. Finally book 2 is here praise Allah!!
If you havn't read "The Passage" yet you HAVE TO get it as well as "The Twelve" NOOWW!
Brick is one of the best narrators around and he's the perfect voice for this series.
A film wouldn't be a long enough format to do this series justice. I would rather see it as a series or mini-series on hbo or showtime.
I can't wait for the next book.
