No. Guidall always but after listening to him read this, I had to take a break, get the stink out of my brain, the foul taste out of my mouth. Try to forget I listened to him read this novel. I almost left the book half way through, but as an aspiring writer myself, I thought there must be some point that Block will get to. I shouldn't be critical without finishing the book. Fact is, Block doesn't get to a point, unless it is that everyone is weak and completly out of control. This isn't a judgement of what the characters do but rather the way they wind up doing what they do. And the motivation for the killer makes no sense. Sorry Mr. Block, I just couldn't buy it. So, wish I had left the book half way. I suggest you avoid it all together. There's nothing to gain from it, but a lot to loose, especially the hours you spend with it. I've never read other books by Block and this one may be way outside what he usually writes, but I have no desire to find out.
His obvious disdain for humanity in general.
I would have said: Don't know why you felt compelled to write this book, but put it in a drawer and forget about it. Better yet, just destroy it. You don't want to be remembered for Small Town.
Would like to hear Block explain the point of writing this.
