    Story
    (110)

    Frank Money is an angry, self-loathing veteran of the Korean War who, after traumatic experiences on the front lines, finds himself back in racist America with more than just physical scars. His home may seem alien to him, but he is shocked out of his crippling apathy by the need to rescue his medically abused younger sister and take her back to the small Georgia town they come from and that he's hated all his life. This is a deeply moving novel about an apparently defeated man finding his manhood - and his home.

    Melinda says: "not a novel, but a collection of short stories"
    "Author should not read their own works"

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not the best use of my time as the monotone voice of the reader did nothing to enhance the story. I would have preferred to read the book myself.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Another actor reading would have brought more life to the story.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No

    From the number-one New York Times best-selling author, a novel about three very different women who become friends while seeking refuge in an old beach house.

    Overall

    Trite, boring and preditable. I couldn't wait for it to be over. The narrator was the only good part. Hope she gets better material to read the next go round.
