As far as what happens this is the only way I can describe it. Imagine a mystery novel crossed with Fried Green Tomatoes. Then imagine that novel was written by Bradbury and Stephen King and you have somewhat of an idea.
Yeah I took a look on Amazon for the reviews. They were the same as yours. Hard to explain but epic.
I bought it a little while back now after reading this thread but as per usual I haven't got to it because I haven't got through the mass of books I buy because of this damn forum.
