    One thought on “The Greyhound God”

    1. Keith Lee Morris writes prose I find almost addictive. I've yet to pick up one of his books and put it down without finishing it. Recently I read "The Dart League King" twice, cover to cover both times: first to take pleasure in the story and then again to look at how he made these struggling men, most of whom would be living safer, more comfortable lives with a college degree that even the most self-effacing could have earned given encouragement and a financial boost. Morris is brilliant writer [...]

    2. An edited version of this article was first published as Book Review: The Greyhound God by Keith Lee Morris on Blogcritics.Are humans rational? If there are things that one can observed around oneself, does one attempt to explain it? These questions are given an answer in Keith Lee Morris' novel The Greyhound God, which is about a dog-race gambler who believes in a supernatural entity at the dog races.The novel starts by the narration of Luke Rivers, who we learn to be the main character of the [...]

    3. When his wife leaves with their young son, Luke's betting on the dog races goes from a way to get by to a search for the meaning of life. Luke explores what it means to be crazy, struggles with his lack of faith in the Christian God he grew up with and his perception of the Greyhound God, and learns the importance of taking action within one's life. An excellent story told through an unusual, but somehow familiar, character. On a side note, I found DART LEAGUE KING much more engrossing, which ma [...]

    4. I'd probably give it a 3.5 or something, in all honesty, but a 3 feels too low. I really dug it. That said, I'll admit to kind of skimming (to the point of practically skipping) large chunks of the first 1/3 or even 1/2, because there was just so much backstory with so little forward movement, and I couldn't really get invested in backstory. Which is a good reminder to self. That said, it all came together really well and I really, really enjoyed it overall, and especially by the end.Wrote a lit [...]

    5. My creative writing professor in college wrote this book, and a couple others on my list of "to-reads." I learned a lot from him during two semesters and I find him to be an exceptional writer. Something about his stories always haunt me and in the reading of them, I always feel like I'll remember them forever.
