If you've ever watched Justified on FX and love it as much as I do, you'll want to read this book. Raylan Givens is a bad ass. Great book!
The story was interesting and the way the characters were written it seemed like the main character stood above everyone watching them as a silent parent watches children blunder as they learn to walk. The antagonists in the story certainly were written with a mean streak to them but at times were fettered by their inability to understand the steely resolve of the main character, Son Martin, and his desire to keep the faith alive, the fires burning and his family history intact. The narrator was good but his pace seemed a bit slow at times adding to the idea that we were actually in Kentucky during prohibition on a lazy summer day. He was able to convey the different characters very nicely by changing his voice patterns, etc. I love Elmore Leanord's ability to tell stories and the manner in which he does.
In summary; whiskey is for drinking, not for burning.
