The book is so pacy and easily absorbed, painting such graphic pictures, that I found myself drawn to compare it with elements of zany type TV series like Northern Exposure, Desperate Housewives, without the omnipresent voice, or even some of the irreverence and immediacy of character penetration in Breaking Bad. The multiple POV first person writing works a treat here, letting one get a very real feel for the characters and their view of the world. Each chapter is written from a different POV, with the main characters have the most chapters. I can't think of any comparisons with other authors that would be helpful, though I'm sure I've read at least one story by William Faulkner that has a similar feel. However vague and inaccurate my indication of style, I need to convey the sense of the immediacy and vividness of TV that comes through in Gamble's writing.
Please try to believe me- this book is well worth a try. If you start I'll be amazed if you don't finish, and what stronger claim to the books quality could I make than that.
Actually, if the first couple of chapters don't get you then sling it. There won't be many bruised cats, or broken Kindles, I'm sure.
I predict that someone will get this book to a movie producer and it will eventually be a big hit. I’m serious about that.
I don’t believe in revealing much of the plot in a review, but will tell you this. The protagonist, Cass, goes through a transition that pulls at your heart, especially if you’ve ever felt a little different from everyone else. The plot is tight and there are surprises all along the way.
If I had the ability to give They Call Me Crazy more than 5 stars, I would tag this wonderful book with 7 stars. Buy it. Read it. Thank me later.
There is a lot of dark humor in this book, most of it unwittingly provided by Cass and brother-in-law Clay. I like their lack of angst and pretension. They are very ordinary people who have survived the unthinkable. Don't get me wrong, this is a great light summer or holliday read, but it is not fluffy.
Perfect for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend and all the long golden days to come. A great companion on a road trip or to enjoy while barbecuing the 37th hamburger of the season. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
