Dark, evil, gripping and utterly brilliant.,
This review is from: The Devil All the Time (Paperback)
What can I say that hasn't already been said. The subject matter is dark and bleak at times, yet Pollock's writing keeps the reader engaged at all times. It's a book that grabs you by the throat and never let's you go peacefully on your way. The characterisation is first class, and the various plots and sub-plots intertwine nicely and arrive at a point where the reader is pining for a positive ending to the evil that permeates throughout the book.
It's quite simply one of the best books I've ever read. It's a book that examines the darkness of the human heart, but pollock provides enough hope and morality for us not to get too despondent with humanity after turning the final page.
