    Paperbackë Godforsaken Idaho ePUB ↠ godforsaken mobile, idaho book, Godforsaken Idaho EpubThe writer has thrown himself into that part of your mind that asks am I really feeling what I should be is this what life means and who can guide me through this I know this is not new territory for a novel or short stories but what I think makes this set of stories intriguing is the author's ability to draw you into the characters soul and then force you to decide how long you can stay there The amount of darkness in some of the stories is uite unsettling but it's what prevents you from setting the book down I am originally from Southern Idaho and I found his descriptions absolutely perfect In particular how he describes one of the character's girlfriend's parents' house spot on

    Paperbackë Godforsaken Idaho ePUB ↠ godforsaken mobile, idaho book, Godforsaken Idaho EpubMitt Romney DON’T READ THISActually Mitt and Ann and their 5 suare jawed sons could probably relate to some of the characters in “Godforsaken Idaho” Lapsed Mormon Shawn Vestal’s unsettling and often harsh short story collection doesn’t so much tackle his former religion as it does refract it He’s neither condemning nor condoning anything in its doctrine; he’s just writing what he knows which in this case means deeply flawed imperfect people trying to figure out life in rural Idaho They’ve lied cheated and stolen but Vestal is not uick to
