A terrific debut novel! A collection of lovable - and not so lovable - losers, an angry dog, a whack of pot and a stash of cash combine to make this a hilarious backwoods joyride. The dialogue is spot on, and the characters remind me of the guys my Dad forbid me to date. I look forward to Brunet's next book.
Without a doubt, one of the most beautifully written, most evocative books I have ever read (despite the horrific subject matter). The author's voice is just incredible!
Hmmm... How to make a topic like this sexy? Answer is that you can't, really. Reading it felt like I was sitting in a 3rd year economics lecture - which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's dry, yes, but still worth reading. Very informative, very detailed, very thorough, and I like books that make me think, that teach me something.
