Imagine winning the lottery and having the misfortune of the wrong person finding out that information. Your joy might quickly become fear....when they hold your family hostage and demand half the money.
That's the basic premise behind George Dawes Green book, Ravens. But let's get to first things first shall we? Is that not the most awesome cover ever? I absolutely love it and imagine the book will fly off the shelves on the strength of the cover alone.
The book itself isn't bad either. I was almost automatically engaged even though I wasn't terribly fond of any of the characters. And you know how I generally don't like crude sexual talk or language? Well there's lots of that in this book, as well, but I couldn't seem to stop turning the pages. Add to that-I really struggled with the believability of the whole thing.
But despite all of those problems? Totally flew through this book.
I would definitely be up for trying to read some more of this author's work. Also I suspect this may be made into a film....I really visualized it in a film sort of way while reading.
Things You Might Want to Know: Kind of a lot of language and sex talk. And also some seriously weird spins of Christianity.
