NO SPOILER. This was a fairly easy listen. It starts well and keeps moving steadily and the characters are developed very well and there is a lot of mystery. The structure of the novel is also neat because you read the vantage point of one and then the other which fills in the unanswered questions. The only problem with the layout is a few times it felt disconnected until you figured out it had changed time frame or point of view. What sucked was getting to the very end and not having the closure I had expected. It felt a little out of hand by that point when the author was attempting to link the generations of characters... as if he didn't quite know how to pull it off. Well... he didn't in my opinion. Nevertheless it is worth a listen. The drama was intense at the time. The author did a superb job in writing as if it were the late 1800's. Vance's narration made it all an easy listen and I listened comfortably at 1.5X speed. I would go ahead and spend a credit on this one. If any of this was helpful, please click YES below. Later.
So disappointed with this book! It had such great potential! If you like monotonous babbling this might be the book for you! So many questions remain unanswered.
pretty great human person
Had seen the movie and was interested in hearing the book. The book is pretty different, but still a pleasure to hear. Simon Vance made the story come alive with his character voices. Would definitely recommend this audio book.
Fascinating tale of a feud between two confused men, told in such a way that keeps you at the edge of your seat. Now that I've finished, I feel the need to return to the start and revisit earlier parts of the book to check the story.
The twists were revealed so we'll and gradually that you could enjoy them for a long time. Very satisfying story with cool contrasts in characters.
