    This book is a hidden treasure for readers who love well written character driven fiction I was a bit afraid that this would be one of those cutesy, colorful books filled with a whole zany cast of often Southern small town folk with small town drama, but this isn t that book There ARE a lot of small town characters and there is drama, but this book is on a whole other level The characters are brilliantly crafted so real it s almost uncanny,...

    We have a modern literary epidemic, admit it Symptoms include apathetic narrators, shorter novels, yawn inducing stories of the ultra rich, unsympathetic characters, and the same old drivel about ultra hip city life The cure is Vestal McIntyre, taking us back to a time when penicillin cured everything and characters were substantial, interesting, and freakishly relat...

    This beautifully written book has the sprawl of a Victorian novel with the care and attention to detail of the best contemporary short story McIntyre brings to life an entire town in Idaho over the course of a year in the mid 1980s I m amazed at his powers of observation and the even handed way he presents so many different type...

    Clearly a labor, as so many first novels are funded by the NEA and encouraged by Yaddo, McIntyre s first novel is a meandering, overstuffed ensemble small town drama set in Idaho in the mid 80s Mormons, teenagers, mothers, fathers, dying folks, drug addicts, and a science fair all orbit each other in a sort of detail heavy, slow cooked race towards an unclear finish I give it 3 because while McIntyre s clearly very talented, the center really doesn t hold with Lake Overturn It s about 2 3rds Clearly a labor, as so many first novels are funded by the NEA and encouraged by Yaddo, McIntyre s first novel is a meandering, overstuffed ensemble small town drama set in Idaho in the mid 80s Mormons, teenagers, mothers, fathers, dying folks, drug addicts, and a science fair all orbit each other in a sort of detail heavy, slow cooked race towards an unclear finish I give it 3 because while McIntyre s clearly very talented, the center really doesn t hold with Lake Overturn It s about 2 3rds of a great novel, but I don t anticipate much sticking power in the novel as a whole, simply because McIntyre s focus never rests long enough on any of his admittedly compelling plot threads young boy in jr hi...

    Vestal McIntyre is a master of character driven fiction I suspected as much when I read his short story collection, You Are Not The One , and this novel goes beyond what he accomplished in that book The residents of Eula, Idaho are as light as they are dark, they are as happy as they are angry Not one of them is a caricature, they are flesh and blood and the craziness that lives in all of us Beyond giving us characters that will make you second, third, and fourth guess your opinions on the Vestal McIntyre is a master of character driven fiction I suspected as much when I read his short story collection, You Are Not The One , and this novel goes beyond what he accomplished in that book The residents of Eula, Idaho are as light as they are dark, they are as happy as they are angry Not one of them is a caricature, they are flesh and blood and the craziness that lives in all of us Beyond giving us characters that will make you second, third, and fourth guess your opinions on the people...

    Fabulous book for book clubs We had a great discussion with so many of the topics and issues that the novel presents Just not my normal cup of tea and it was kind of slow for me since you jump from character to character with no real climax for any of them.

    Literary fiction takes many forms Sometimes it takes the shape of social satire placed within a simple narrative, other times it takes the form of an author, self aware of the words he or she places on the page, and even still, other times it takes the form of a complexly interwoven plot Partly masterful and partly mundane, Vestal McIntyre s Lake Overturn follows the characters of a small town of Eula in rural Idaho Even though the setting and characters in this book strikingly resemble Napol Literary fiction takes many forms Sometimes it takes the shape of social satire placed within a simple narrative, othe...
