This book was horrible! This book was seperated into several boring stories of the author's childhood/manhood. The crux of each of these stories offered no real value or intrest. This book was not funny, sentimental, or in any way entertaining. Worst of all was the narration in which the author read the book with the voice and inflections of a 5 year old child. Skip this book.
This entire book feels like Ford gathered leftover bits and pieces from yet another trip to the Frank Bascombe well and put them together to work out his issues with race. It's a boring book about old white man angst with no unexpected plot twists or any real development. The characters have the same depth as a wet cardboard box. Ford is better than this and is beating a dead horse with this book. Try Canada or one of Ford's story collections. Purchasing this book will only encourage Ford to write yet another Frank Bascombe time waster.
Great author and story but when you download this book, you will not receive the entire story. This version is not abridged, it's just missing the second half of the book. Do Not Purchase!
Great stories ruined by one of the worst readings I have heard. I guess I got what I paid for with this cheap version. Buy the book and read it yourself.
