Read full description of the books:
I should probably re-read this at some point, because it's one of those instances where you think you know where the story was heading, but it goes somewhere so HUGELY different that you're left scratching your head about why the author made such a strange choice.
The first two chapters were very compelling, if extremely caricatured, portraits of smalltown America. The introduction refers to the book as suburban America, but based on my experience, it fits more into the insular world of smalltown America. Regardless, the caricatures are spot on, exaggerating the desperate attempts for attention, power and love that dominate many people's lives, and I found it to be extremely tragic and believable (in its own over-stated way!).
Then, the book takes a totally bizarre twist. Where I was expecting the mundane ending of recognizing that this is simply who we as human beings are and that maybe we can't expect anything better, Casey instead veered into some strange territory, introducing the neo-mythical milkman of the title, and turning the series into a homicidal awakening and purging of mid-American sins. It was odd and un-predicted, and far enough removed from expectation that I, honestly, still don't know how to react.
Parkhouse's art is, however, a no-brainer, because it is absolutely perfect for this book - exaggerated and cartoony - in short, a perfect caricature of a depressing, smalltown family. Strong storytelling, the perfect amout of detail, and wonderfully human, flawed characters.
