Loved the book, loved the mini-series and this audio book is better than either. This sweeping tale and the characters living within are very engaging and without much effort you are soon living in Delano.
Stuart Woods connects all of the Lee family into a single book. This is a fascinating story of rural Georgia over three decades. I believe that this is one of his best in terms of tieing the plot and characters to the real world and the challenges we face.
This book so accurately portrays life and prejudice in the changing south of the Mid 1900's that it gave me the creeps while compeling me to keep reading. I lived through that time/place .. and this book deserves the accolades it received when first published.
Don't plan on doing anything else when you start listening to this. It is really a good book! I'm Southern and know that the racial tension rings true. I also liked the narrator.
The story line was realistic and riveting. I listened from start to finish because I had to know what happened next. Can't wait to read more from Stuart Woods.
I read this many years ago and was thoroughly entertained with it.
Am 2/3 of the way through it again (listeneing this time) and am reminded what a great story and how well told it is.
IMHO it is clearly Mr Woods' best work. Every subsequent 'page turner' lacks the depth of this work. I keep reading but have been mildly disappointed at everyone since this one.
This is a great read or listen.. as the case may be.. I love the reader Mark Hammer. I think he does a great job. I have been totally caught up with it as I motor across the country.
This was an excellent read, continue to enjoy Woods works. I am running out of books by him. Want them all unabridged.
I really recommend this book. Some complained about the narrator and the slowness of his speech, but, trust me, his accent and pace is right for the time and place (well, except for the Irish wife's accent, he'd have been better off not attempting that one and missing by such a wide margin.
