This was great! Only my fourth Little novel, but by far my favorite (which is saying a lot because I loved The Store). I love his style, just love the way his books start out slow, mellow, and slowly start to escalate with tension and horror, but not too much, and then WHAM, the shyte hits the fan hardcore! Little is not for the squeamish, and this book is no exception. Great commentary on the ills of society: classism, elitism, racism, homophobia, it's all covered here. I couldn't put the book down. And the ending, it was great, which is rare with Little.
