"We cannot envision the glory of God, but we know exactly what our demons look like."
Today comedian Chale Thayer will tempt fate at the end of a gun barrel. Only time will tell who gets the last laugh.
The beginning caught me immediately. It's a beautiful passage, reaching for a poetry in a way that is uncommon in genre writing, and in a way which I appreciate.
The ending was slick. I was confident I guessed the twist pretty early in the story, but then it twisted on the twist! So, that was a pleasant surprise. I felt like that twist could have been worked a bit more, given a little time to breathe, but it was still good.
The salt world evokes some interesting imagery that suits the book's cover image well. I think the biggest thing I would have liked to have seen was more in-depth exploration of the main character's personality and emotion. I don't feel like I got to know him as well as I would have liked.
Not really related to the story itself, but I love the cover image.
