A very disappointing book. I read the first chapter of Nine Below Zero in the bookstore and couldn't wait to get it home to finish it. While I don't mind reading a dark novel, it would certainly help if I liked the characters, and I did not like one in this novel. Justine in particular grated on my nerves.

His tough, resilient, often bitter characters know better, but at life's turning points they surrender almost inevitably to the yearning for self-destruction. This is the case again here. It’s a tribute to the power of Canty’s deterministic vision that, even though it seems inevitable that the angry, desperate Justine and the despairing, self-aware Marvin (struggling to control his appetite for booze and drugs) will meet and begin an affair, their collision is still striking. Canty also portrays’shrewdly-the anger the affair rouses in Marvin’s town.

No one can accuse Kevin Canty of seeing the world through rose-colored glasses. Smart, gritty, unsentimental. Finely tuned to the precariousness and treachery of human need.
