Which is a shame, because author Will Woodard has a way of writing that exudes that small town flavor. Unfortunately, the everyday life described in the book was not powerful enough to grab and pull me into the story. The story moves from scene to scene but never moves faster than a plodding gait.
Mr. Woodard does try hard, though, involving every person, critter, and essence to entice readers to continue. We are introduced to many of the residents of God, Texas, learn about Maybell the cow, and discover the power of a tasty Bar-B-Que’s odor. It all might have worked better if the author would have confined the viewpoint of the storyteller to one person. Because Mr. Woodard’s small town flavor comes through in everything he writes, the characters all blend together and seem like one voice.
Perhaps that is the author’s wish, to show the amalgamation of a town of folks who have known each other for a long time. Even if that is so, it is still hard to accomplish that without a loss of energy. Other readers may enjoy this book more than I did, but I can’t get excited about a book that didn’t excite me. Mr. Woodard has talent, and I based the rating on that, but the plot and characters wouldn’t allow me to go any higher. Three stars.
