Not good... Not bad...just okay
Found this book predictable and dull. The Southerners in the book are stereotypical racist and stupid. The Northern educated relative visits and 'puts everyone in their place'. Characters lack dimension and common sense. Knew ending a third of the way in.
This is an engrossing novel with great turns. The main characters are not likeable. However, the media machine who drivies the story is so relevant.
Spud's insights stay with you long after the book ends. The author delves into heavy topics such as sexuality, racism, mental illness, and alcoholism. The irreverent tone of the young teenager named Spud makes the journey so much fun.
A good book. Learned about an ancient Roman cult and listened to a mytery unfold at the same time.... Not boring at all. The team of investigators are well developed characters. Plus the scene with the 'worm' autopsy makes it totally worth it...
