It sounded like this would be a good story, but I finally gave up because the language was so trashy. I wish there was ratings for books like for movies so I could avoid foul language. Really wasted my money on this one.
I thought I could handle the book (from listening to the sample) even though the performace wasn't highly rated by others. Should have listened to them - not the sample. The reader is really awful. I kept wanting to give him an allergy pill - he is so nasel!
I am getting so tired of listening to the sample and decide that the book will be good, then 3-4 chapters in the language gets really trashy. Why does authors do that? Do thay think that they have us snagged and will listen to the end? No more for me! I think that books without bad language would get mild listerners as well as the hard-core listeners. Trashy books only get trashy listeners.
Had to keep listening because the story is really good, but probably won't listen to any more by this author because the language ruined the listening experience. Great performance by the reader.
The story was worth listening to, but I got tired of the language and trashy parts. I fast forward to hear the end, because of the parts that had no relevance to the story.
When I first started listening, I thought that this was one I probably wouldn't get very far into. Before I knew it I had listened to the the first part and couldn't quit listening. Great story and great performace.
This book was entertaining and good to pass the time, but not one that I would consider a great listen. It just didn't catch my undivided attention. The story board was good, but kind of fizzled at the end.
Couldn't get past the first chapter. Too trashy for me. The sample didn't have anything that indicated that this would be so graphic. Wasted my money on this one.
I loved the insight into the Kentucky mountain culture through the eyes of an outsider. Great Story and well read.
I really enjoyed this book. Normally I don't care for books that go back and forth between times, but this one was easy to follow and made the story better. The reader was perfect. The author keeps you guessing (and hoping) what the end will be and gives a better understanding of that part of history. Great Book!
This book did keep me listening to see what happened next and was somewhat intertainng, but dragged out too long just to increase the length. Same story could have been told in a lot less time.
