NicevilleBook - 2012
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Niceville! is a very busy novel - like two novels compressed into one, actually. One story is about a family curse, told in southern gothic style, the other about the mass murder of police officers, during a bank robbery gone wrong.
It's a decent read; it's just a little overwhelming as far as plot lines. Stroud does a good job keeping them separate yet woven. Still the overall effect is perhaps he could have condensed things a little more.
The supernatural element - a difficult genre to master - just barely skirts being cheesy - unbelievably written. Parts are quite good. In fact, the first section of the book is very great, fast-paced reading. It just slows a bit from there.
So, not bad but not great. Worth a try if it sounds like your thing.
