Well written though I found the concept to be pretty bizarre. I couldn't really get into the story and found that I didn't really connect with any of the characters, though I finished the book due to a combination of morbid curiosity and a desire to figure out just what the h*ll was going on.

Scott Nicholson can articulate the language and understands both human nature and how to meld the two for the benefit of readers. This is a slow-burn but riveting story of observing the rituals of grief and familial duty in a US rural community - with all concerned desperate to break their self-imposed bonds. Despite being a contemporary story, echoes of a time before seeped through its open pores. Roby Snow narrates in a quiet, unrushed, yet poignant tone, that after a while begins to raise the hairs on your neck. And not without reason. I'll be reading more of Scott Nicholson.
