Well presented on the Kindle with good attention to Formatting, pagination and editing.
This is the second book to be selected by the new UK Kindle Forum Book Club - just normal Kindle readers reading for pleasure.
For the book club I'd surmise that this is about as "rich" as the general group want to go. It's not that greusome but it does touch on some pretty strong topics.
In terms of intensity and build up it actually goes backwards - I found the opening chapters quite extreme and after this "baptism of fire" the work undertaken by the sheriff to find her actually reduced the fire down to sparkling embers. And I liked it that way. You can only go so long at full throttle. The gentle building of the players and events worked well for this story and for me.
If you have watched the film "Fargo" you will appreciate the style of this book. Things happen, remarkable things for this quiet hamlet. But it's the people who live here that the story is really about.
If I'm being critical I have an issue with so few characters. It's a "who did what" and with so few people in there it's pretty clear who did do what.
As always, my advice to anyone who does something bad is to SHUT UP! The denouement of XX admitting the crime is Hollywood weak. I think we deserved a little better.
I'd have liked to learn more, a lot more about Morrison. I think his back and side story would have been interesting.
What I did like especially is that it's not one of those books that is going to keep you awake at night with terror. All in all an enjoyable read.
