Poor Larry Ott He s a beautiful soul whose wings have been clipped he s damaged and hurting after a lifetime of being ridiculed being thrown to the wolves being falsely accused of a horrific crimeAnd yet he doesn t lose his sweetness or optimism even after his only childhood friend Silas ditches him out of fear of losing his own newfound popularity Silas has to accept how poorly he used to treat Larry while they were growing up and it s not easy to do The author did a magnificent job of facing this raw pain head onAll Larry ever wanted is one true friend but life kicked him where the sun doesn t shine when it comes to that wish too I just wanted to wrap him up in a blanket and hold him Make it all better because someone as kindhearted and gentle as he is shouldn t have to face the cruelties of this world alonePeople who are alone become a target an easy mark for bullies and people who can wildly spin things out of control at the drop of a hat The other people who come into Larry s life have their own twisted agenda but Larry s loneliness makes it difficult to turn anyone away This is crucial to the layout of the storyI almost gave this 4 stars because the ending is too neatly tied together but the character development is true perfection so it s worth the extra star

Oh small town rural America why must you scare me so Why must this book written about you kill something inside me with every page Why does it and you by proxy need to crush me with loneliness and sadness and desperation This is a profoundly sad book about sadness in life which is sad And I m not even being a brat here when I say that There s nothing about this story that s even remotely optimistic even the uasi hopeful ending is very sad if you think about itAnd why wouldn t it be sad The background for the story is uite melancholic uite depressing really Set in a tiny Mississippi town that is slowly dying in the heart of poverty and little hope for the future the story is full of racial tension prejudice bigotry hatred misogyny and all the other little petty evils that lurk in the hearts of people Like Stephen King the author oh so freuently referenced in this book view spoilerseriously Tom Franklin You have complete disregard for any spoilers in Salem s Lot don t you hide spoiler
