Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Idyllic Smalltown, USA is a paramount setting for horrific events in literature - It’s the perfect place for everyone to feel extremely safe in their collective naivety to any outside threats. Sara Brooke’s tiny community of Flening is a prime example of this falsely secure mindset. Flening is a tiny landlocked town in Northwest Florida with a population well under a thousand. Brooke’s small town is pretty predictable and any social events that occur usually do so around the several churches within the county limits, or the one body of water, Still Lake.
