    Liked it.

    Didn't care for the ending much, but the rest was really good. Kept me turning the pages. That's for certain!

    Beautifully dark!

    This book is easily one of the best books that I have read this year. I finished reading this book a couple of days ago but I haven't stopped thinking about it and I don't think that I will anytime soon. This book popped on my radar when I read a couple of really good reviews around the time it was released last year. I knew that I wanted to read it but life got in the way as it often does. I am so glad that I took the time to read this book now because it was absolutely fantastic. This is the story of a small group of people in a small town in the mountains. One decision will forever change their lives and there is no going back. Darl knows that it's not hunting season but he decided to try to get a deer anyway. When he sees a hog in the woods, he takes the shot. Only it's not a hog or a deer. It's a man and everything is about to change. Instead of calling the authorities, Darl decides to cover up what happened and he asks his best friend, Calvin for help. Unfortunately, the dead man's brother, Dwayne, is determined to make those who took so much from pay for their actions. This story was rather brutal but I also found beauty in the way it brought what really matters to the forefront. This is a gritty and violent story filled with rich descriptions. There were more than a few surprises in the story and I had a hard time putting the book down because I had to know how things would work out. Even though the story was rather dark and grim, I found that this was still a story about hope, love, and the lengths a person will go to for those that they love. "Fate's a funny thing, he thought, the way things might seem meaningless at the time, but wind up being what brought down a man's whole life." I thought that the writing was superb. I just felt like there was a certain beauty to the way the author put words together to tell this tale. I actually found myself re-reading certain passages because I was so taken with the prose. Not only was the writing beautiful, but the story was also nicely paced. I never felt like the story dragged with more active scenes being nicely balanced with other scenes that were more thoughtful. The story grabbed me from the very first page and never let up. I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy dark, gritty stories that pack a big punch. I loved everything about this book and cannot wait to read more of this talented author's work.
