Every family has secrets. In this story, family secrets are exposed, one after another, as the characters burn with anger and writhe with shame at hearing the ugly truths and betrayal. Franklin's dialogue perfectly captures the male voice, as the dual protagonists, brothers, experience emotions to raw to talk about.
I enjoyed the easy moving story. It had drama and interesting characters with realistic resolutions. Feel it could have been a part of my life.
Story was a change from my usual detective novels but I liked the change of pace. The reader of this book did an excellent job.
This audio book is a perfect balance of a well crafted tale and an expert narration. The characters are refreshingly realistic. Surprises pop up and keep the listener fully engaged. The story is full of life's most important aspects--friendship, loneliness, abuse, regrets, disappointments, betrayals, repentance, love, honor, forgiveness, and acceptance. I don't want to go into details and dump spoilers on anyone. I am glad I listened to Crooked Letter, and I will be enjoying it again soon.
This was worth the credit. The story was interesting. When I wasn't listening I was thinking about it and couldn't wait to get back to it.
It took me awhile to get into the book but once I did, I found it very satisfying. The pace matched the pace of the geography, slow and steady.
I thoroughly enjoyed the author's skill with words and his talent was enhanced by Kevin Kenerly's narration which truly brought the characters to life.
The storyline, itself, kept my interest right through to the end.
