    Set in rural southern Ohio and West Virginia, The Devil All the Time follows a cast of compelling and bizarre characters from the end of World War II to the 1960s. There’s Willard Russell, tormented veteran of the carnage in the South Pacific, who can’t save his beautiful wife, Charlotte, from an agonizing death by cancer no matter how much sacrifi­cial blood he pours on his “prayer log.”

    Kathy says: "WOW What a FIND!"

    Story
    If you could sum up The Devil All the Time in three words, what would they be?

    Disturbing.


    What other book might you compare The Devil All the Time to and why?

    Cormac McCarthy's books...........darker, but every bit as well written.


    Have you listened to any of Mark Bramhall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not; he's an excellent narrator.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All of it........


    Any additional comments?

    Deeply disturbing to the point I've considered not finishing it. One wonders how anyone can imagine the things Donald Ray Pollock describes. His writing is almost too good. I wonder if he's written anything less unsettling.
