    " Adrianne recommended this to me and so I ordered it. It is a very well imagined story. I'm always intrigued by the lives of small town losers my own age. Sometimes I flirt with the idea of moving to a small town but then I realize that the things I get away with in NY are not acceptable there. The problems were DUIs, the same ten people sleeping with each other, small time loser drug dealers who work under a kingfish that the locals police are after, and which of the two barts in town to go to play darts. This was a very fun read. "

    " I'm tempted to give this book four stars, because its epilogue deserves five (more on this later). However, were it not for the epilogue, the book would rest firmly in the three star category, so there it shall stay. For all of this averageness, however, there is much to recommend in this fast-paced depiction of rural life. The characters are vivid and memorable, despite their conformance to stereotypical country bumpkins. The plot somehow manages to be both predictable (again, confirming our stereotypes regarding these characters) and intriguing at the same time. Finally, Morris truly excels at depicting place. You can see the bar where these characters play darts, the narrow roads that transport them to lake houses, the duplex cottages where so many of their parents waste away. In the book's epilogue, these exemplary renderings of place combine to excellent effect with a cacophony of the novel's voices. It's a remarkable and incredible 30 pages of prose that so far exceeds what comes before that it almost makes you forget what precedes entirely. This book reads incredibly quickly -- I read nearly all of it on a 2.5 hour flight between Chicago and NH. And all of this time was worth it to arrive at its incredible end. In fact, I suspect re-reading this novel knowing what was coming at its end would produce a far more satisfactory experience. "

    " Takes a few minutes to pick up the rhythm of the writing, but by then it has caught you in its undertow...can't put it down. "

    " Thank you, Keith Lee Morris, for sharing these tightly-wrought characters and their finely-wrought world with readers, and thank you, Tin House, for putting Morris' fast-paced, addictive tale into readers' hands. I could scarcely take a break from this narrative, and could scarcely bear to see it end. Like the early work of Richard Russo, whose "Risk Pool" swept me into its small town world with equal measures of humor and anguish, this novel is masterful. Bravo. "
