    I finished this book in August, but couldn t find my rating up here.THE AMULET was a superb, mysteriously supernatural novel by Michael McDowell Both his characterization and atmosphere of this small town were wonderfully descriptive While the title alone gives knowledge of what this book is about, it s the everyday occurrences, and interactions between the characters that fully bring the story to life Captivating from first to last page, with an ending that will have you thinking for some ti I finished this book in August, but couldn t find my rat...

    Amulet opens with an accomplished sequence of chapters that introduces the reader to Pine Cone, Alabama and its impoverished denizens with all the grace for storytelling that McDowell would later flaunt in Blackwater Too bad the promise of these early pages dissipates as the tone turns dreary and the narrative grows repetitive The novel follows two plot threads One stars poor Sarah who spends her days doing drone work in the local rifle factory and her nights as the personal slave to mummifie Amulet opens with an accomplished sequence of chapters that introduces the reader to Pine Cone, Alabama and its ...
