    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!"
    "Dark, Dark, Dark."

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

    All the characters in this book are not only flawed humans, they are very damaged. It was difficult to find someone to cheer for. It took me a month to complete this book. Very sad, very violent, incredibly sadistic individuals.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Devil All the Time?

    Prayer log scenes. The desperation of husband to save his beautiful wife.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Favorite? Hmmm... I enjoyed the antics of Theodore & Jesse.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Not suitable for for depressed persons. Should not be viewed during cold grey rainy season. THIS FILM IS NOT INTENDED FOR THE MENTALLY OFF BALANCED.


    Any additional comments?

    Not a good bed time read. I found this book interesting, the characters were well developed... But damn its dark.
