Great characters, plot and setting. Wouldn't be surprised if this novel makes it to the "silver screen" very soon.
Mother of teenaged bear, Wife to chaos, Warrior
I loved this story it was believable and sweet. The ending was enough and it all work out
Will Patton does an excellent job of transporting you to the Ozarks. The narrator frequently makes, or breaks, the book. You won't be disappointed with the time you spend listening.
Don't want to do any spoilers, so I'll just say some relationships and many actions come as a big surprise.
Inside the mind is like jumping into heaven or hell, whenever the wayfarer sees fit.
More dialogue for a performer in the caliber of Will Patton. Very slow and way overboard on the descriptive narrative of the the story. I'm sure Will must have wanted to doze off during that reading.
Add some dialogue and points that the reader can sustain the interest.
Will Patton is outstanding, and made the book bearable.
The author describes the natural beauty of the world the characters inhabit with uncanny accuracy.
Pulls you right in. Yes, a bit raw at times but so real. Loved the character of Luce. Her ability to overcome a hard life and offer nurturing to her sister's children show the best of human nature.
I've listened to this twice because Will Patton's softly Southern voice is so perfect for this odd mystery. Frazier's writing is poetic and haunting, and the audiobook is the perfect medium for this work.
I think I enjoyed this more in audible format than I would have reading it. The writing is stellar--the descriptions vivid and rich, the characters well drawn and the plot interesting. The narrator was topnotch with appropriate accents to keep the changing narrative point of view at the forefront. He did an excellent job. I was sorry to see this book end.
Because of the narration performance.
When the children are riding Sally into the woods.
Bud's death monologue.
The twins, because of the haunting way they were characterized by Frazier.
Awesome book, fantastic performance by Will Patton.
This book is very well written, making it an excellent narration for the very talented Will Patton. He is very easy to listen to. He made the story and characters come alive, as if the author had written the book, just for his voice. Great Listen!
