The Devil All the TimeThe Devil All the Time by Donald Ray Pollock
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I can see where this one will draw a lot of fans. It has a very modern, clean prose feel to an old True Crime kind of tale, but just amp up the ultraviolence, make it FIT a very modern, jaded sensibility, and let it ride the '50s pain train.

Honestly, it was pretty fun. It may not have tickled all my jaded sensibilities and the total feel of "everyone is shit" pervades the tale, but for certain readers, THIS IS EVERYTHING. :)

I'll probably check out the Netflix adaptation now. :)

This did fit the Spooktober recipe, at least. :)
