  1. I love Flannery I have read all her works I have lived my whole life right next to the town she grew up in and I am also Catholic This woman is IT She is witty, sarcastic to perfection, genius with a plot and quite the master of a surprise ending And not by how the story unfolds necessarily but at the fact that she will slap you in the face wih your own prejudices before you can even say Ouch Yes You have bias It s ok Yes she has an eye for spotting them and an ability to translate them perfectl [...]


  2. I must admit, I really didn t get this book I understand some of the religious themes and dark irony it is dealing with through characters like a charlatan preacher in it for the money, a young man of doubtful sanity who acts on mystical impulses wise blood , and the main character who claims a sort of atheism The Church without Christ yet is religiously dedicated than anyone However, as a whole the book left me saying what did I just read The overall tone was a bit surreal almost kafkaesque, bu [...]


  3. It s the oddities of post war, pre modern, poor, rural America that resonate so drunkenly through this remarkable tale The austerity of the characters, like unadorned walls in the homes of the underclass with neither money nor education, the barrenness of their actions and thought processes make one wonder how many people in our world still live, still think like this The writing is disturbingly gorgeous Follow Hazel Motes, the meandering displaced young man at the heart of Wise Blood for a rema [...]


  4. This is a hilarious romp through the Dark Night of the Soul, Southern hick style By referencing Dark Night of the Soul, I am indeed referring to the poem by 16th Century Spanish mystic St John of the Cross It s a short poem, and the same one parodied by Douglas Adams in his title The Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul, and I am glad I connected this poem to this work by Flannery O Conner It should be companion reading to this book It will help you unpack these incredible characters that O Conner pai [...]


  5. The absence of likable characters makes it hard to care what happens, and even harder to finish Yet, on a symbolic level, it possesses a profound message Essentially, it is a dystopia of a protestant society after it has left the unifying power of the catholic church O Conner, as a catholic which I am not , saw Protestantism as a fracturing force that unleashes a variety of destructive false prophets They have no common language and no common arbitrator to tell the heretic from the saint The bre [...]


  6. Yet another publisher thinks it s a good idea to include an introduction that completely ruins the story, including key and arresting details affecting the main character Thankfully I ve gotten used to this stupid practice and skipped the introduction until I d finished the book Has no one heard of an afterword Or give a warning If I d read the intro it would have completely spoiled the full effect of the book.Great book by the way, unnerving, odd and pretty bleak Characters are drawn beautifull [...]
