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.
Great listen! I loved that Thom put so much research into the book and opened up insight into what our country was really like during that time. Activists would like us to believe otherwise, but in reality life was hard, cruel and heartbreaking - for everyone. This book portrays strength, endurance and love so well.
I got a lot of housework done over the weekend because I couldn't stop listening. The ending isn't at all what I thought it would be. Grisham kept me guessing the end all the way through. Great Book!
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.
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.
