I don‘t think this book is for everyone. It‘s depiction of taxidermy is visceral (if you can‘t make it through chapter one, put it down.) It‘s a story full of broken messy people struggling, but I think those are the stories I like the most.
It took me a long time to read this, and I really wanted to like it more than I did. It excels as a Floridian novel, one that brings that very particular place alive. But unfortunately, in spite of being dark and visceral (things I usually love) the rest was just off the mark for me. I liked what I read, but felt there were too many missed opportunities to make this something exceptional. #indiebuddyreads
