I also look forward to Rick Bragg's books and this is another good story. Bragg doesn't just write books, he makes art. He says he wrote the stories of these people because he thinks it is important - so do I and I am glad to have met them through this book. His books are favorites in my library and I recommend them, especially Ava's Man, to friends. His narration of his own books makes the listen even more enjoyable.
Pretty formulaic and by the numbers. It's like Lean Cuisine, it has all the right colors, it just doesn't taste of anything. I don't recommend it.
The long and repetitive descriptions kept bringing the story to a dead stop. These passages happened again and again and again. I wanted to find out how it ended and it wasn't worth wading through to an ending you saw coming from a mile away.
This is a very good story, but I thought the brutal, misogynistic murders were over the top, sensationalist and didn't add to the story. I wouldn't recommend it.
The narrator for Henry was a little too snarky for me to connect with or be very interested in.
This book changed my life! There have been issues I have struggled with for years and this book completely turned it all around. I am grateful for E.T.
