Editing is terrible and interferes with reading flow. Foul language and prejudicial sentiments expressed. Twilight has more than it's share of perversion, rage and hate. There are many "babies of rabies" in this tale. Only a cleansing fire can make it right.
Text contains contradictory imaging ("Five years of bone dry summers and rainy seasons without rain has turned Kisatchie into kindling waiting for the match." "Andrea steps to the edge of the platform and looks down to see her reflection in an oily pool of water.") This is only one example of inattention to detail. There is absolutely genius imaging ("...the basketball hits the asphalt, the sound is like a fist striking flesh" creating a visceral image and completely clueless imaging such as "An impossible sun...wasted sky...". What exactly does that mean?
The protagonists are both victims and are trying to find ways to make the suffering go away--opposite sides of the same coin. Even though the disorganization of the story--multiple characters continually switch with one another between the present and the past--reflects the mental state of both Clive and Andrea, it makes the story very hard to follow. When Andrea finds transportation to Twilight the sounds she hears, the body she finds, and the location of the car are completely lost as the story progresses.
The story is jerky making it hard to read, but the phrasing is vivid drawing you in. This novel has a split personality and actually reads like two rather than one author. One author I would read again, the other one I can live without.
Definitely a book you will not soon forget!
What I found beside horrible kindle formatting was a book that drew you in with amazing details and descriptions, characters you grew understand and sympathize with, yes even the bad guys made you empathize with them. What intrigued me the most was that the heroine, Andrea, was almost bad enough to be the bad guy with her tormented past. I had never read a book that made me wonder if the good guy was going to go to the "dark side" but this one did. It left me guessing on the reasoning behind why Andrea was there.. to kill Clive or to join him. The small town of Twilight came alive inside my head the town people, back water Louisiana types took on a life of their own in the story.
The book is ultimately about broken people, what leads them to be what they are and the choices they make to lead them into the future. It does contain graphic material on incest and child abuse, if you can't handle those subjects do not read this book as they are an intricate part of the story line.
The story line was a slow dreamy pace that built up into a huge climatic ending that left you kind of sad but sated with how it ended. Thumbs up for this book from a person who usually runs the other direction from this type of story.
This book seems like something that was quickly created, not well thought-out, not edited, and never revised to explain things that don't make sense. I did not find it to be gripping, a page-turner, or a book that has you on the edge of your seat. I would never recommend this book to a friend and am frankly a bit shocked that the author has the gall to charge money for this unfinished piece of work. Definitely not worth the 99 cents, please save your money.
