Nevertheless, I didn't find this book fascinating. There are two main reasons for it.
First is the jumping from character to character, from setting to setting. I know that it was supposed to create suspense and tension, but it just made the book annoying and the narration - disjointed to the point where I had to consciously concentrate to remember what was going on. Sometimes it jumped from scene to scene every few sentences.
The second reason is that the characters are flat and there are too many of them. Or rather they were too flat and poorly done that I kept forgetting who was who and what their names were. The number of characters is not that impressive. Their backgrounds are nonexistent, their actions are unnatural. For example the main characters just keep "forgetting" there is an unstable teenager with a gun running loose time and time again, and he just pops up when it is convenient. The arrival of Robert (the main character's boyfriend) and things that happen to him are just... he seems like a placeholder for a character who the author intended to use for the dramatic effect but failed. I know nothing about him, I didn’t see much of him or his reactions so I just can't empathize.
The Reverend has mesmerized the entire town of Avebury Ohio weaving his tentacles into every source of power and influence. Everyone has an agenda and sinister forces are everywhere. The story unfolds in a wonderful way. I love that the book is just the right size. Often it seems a story is too rushed and we miss the opportunity to explore the different characters that we encounter. I like the flow and pacing of the story.
The characters are not flat or predictable. The story is so real you forget your reading a book and find yourself talking to the book as some people do when watching a scary movie. There are plot twists, surprises, and always someone to root for and care about.
