    Story
    (157)

    Greenville County, South Carolina, is a wild, lush place that is home to the Boatwright family - a tight-knit clan of rough-hewn, hard- drinking men who shoot up each other's trucks, and indomitable women who get married young and age too quickly. At the heart of this story is Ruth Anne Boatwright, known simply as Bone, a bastard child who observes the world around her with a mercilessly keen perspective.

    Would you listen to Bastard Out of Carolina again? Why?

    I will listen to again. It was interesting from beginning to end. The narration was spot on...I couldn't imagine it any other way.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The entire Boatwright Family was tragic but entertaining as well.


    What does Elizabeth Evans bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Elizabeth really brings this story to life. She does a wonderfull job of expressing all the different characters and the emotion of every chapter from beginning to end.


    If you could rename Bastard Out of Carolina, what would you call it?

    I couldn't rename it. It is perfect. I suppose "A Girl Called Bone".


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great story. Heartbreaking and seemed so true and devastating at times. The very first time Bone was abused my heart broke into a millions peices for her. I felt all the rage she should have been feeling although she didn't really know what had just happened she was so young. I felt the betrayal she should have been feeling...and as the story progressed I found myself wishing SOMEONE would put two and two together and figure it out and get that little girl out of there. I found myself wondering about the little sister...was she ok? I thought the creep would start on her (or just did) while Bone was in the ER for her broken tail bone and other injuries. I could go on but to not want to give away the story.

    Overall..really deep thought provoking book and narration was perfect..highly reccommended.

    The modern audience hasn't had a chance to truly appreciate the unknowing dread that readers would have felt when reading Bram Stoker's original 1897 manuscript. Most modern productions employ campiness or sound effects to try to bring back that gothic tension, but we've tried something different. By returning to Stoker's original storytelling structure - a series of letters and journal entries voiced by Jonathan Harker, Dr. Van Helsing, and other characters - with an all-star cast of narrators, we've sought to recapture its originally intended horror and power.

    N. Houghton says: "Gothic Horror Never Sounded So Good"

    Would you try another book from Bram Stoker and/or the narrators?

    I'll let you know how I like it..until then I give it a big fat zero

    Beats me...I can't listen


    What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

    Nothing...its not working


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not at all


    Any additional comments?

    Nope
