The dying days of World War I the Spanish flu devastates the small town of Incarnation Texas The sheriff closes the church and uarantines the dying in the schoolhouse The townsfolk huddle alone in their houses to avoid infection Each new day brings fresh corpsesBut something worse than the flu is coming Verge Strömberg son of the domineering town pastor is a sickly boy who l Interesting labyrinthine tale that suffer from a clumsy immature first person narrative perspective and an unsuccessful attempt at dialect The entire novel is a framing story with seven tales that may or may not be real I found the first person perspective the clumsy plotting at times and the dialect distracting Certainly Beelzebub can come up with something clever or profound than Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades It's this sort of thing that distracted me from being enchanted by the complex structure of the overall taleFirst person is always dodgy when you are dealing with someone who you want to come across as average but not exceptional The problem with the narrator writing in retrospect in what attempts to be dialect is also distracting The dialect does not come off as real enough or necessary enough to keep the reader from wondering why it is there at all This probably won't be a problem for as many people as it was for me It always came off as strained to me Like somebody trying to guess at a Texan's dialectWhat dragged at times finally got going about 23 of the way through The embedded tales were sometimes interesting than the novel itself and the mostly seamless intertwining of story within story was the most effective and engaging part of the whole for me So to continue beating a dead horse close but no cigar
