The Washington PostThis strange, outrageous and wonderful novel is not for everyone. If you turn to fiction for comfort, uplift or the milk of human kindness, you should avoid Carsten Stroud's Niceville. If, however, you savor the blackest of comedy and fear that evil is all around us, embodied in both flesh-and-blood and supernatural creatures, then you might enjoy this toxic tale as much as I did…Stroud's sardonic story often recalls a Hieronymus Bosch landscape, teeming with sinners, monsters and madmen…the book also offers surprises, shocks, moments of lyricism, explosions of humor and unrelenting suspense. It's superior storytelling.
