hooks in books

I read this novel years ago – and think it deserves a re-read.  This is one of the books that will soon be made into a movie.  I highly recommend The Wettest County in the World by Matt Boudurant!  Excerpt below:

The brindled sow stood in the corner, glowering at the boy.  Jack Bondurant hefted a bolt-action .22 rifle with a deep blue octagon barrel, the stock chewed and splintered from brush and river stone.  He chambered a round, walked over to the sow and put the end of the barrel about a foot from a pink eye and squeezed the trigger.
