This story had so much potential, but had so many flaws. The narration during first quarter of the book was like listening to a 3 year old with bad grammar for hours. The only reason that I continued the book is because I was held hostage on an airplane and was able to fast-forward. Jack was able to go from reading at an adult level to talking like a 2 year old. The controversy over breast feeding was also handled very poorly by the author. It seemed like she just wanted you to react to the comments. I have listened to over 100 audiobooks and this one is at the bottom.
Great story with vivid detail that spans for decades across Texas. It was a great listen with many narrators and would also be a good read. A family is woven together for better and worse across many generations.
This was very well written. It's dark and funny and will stay with you for a while.
This one is very different from L.R. King's other books and takes some time to get going. However, the characters are very deep and interesting. It's slow in the 1st half, but the second half picks up with some twists and turns.
The characters in this story were never really developed; therefore, it was really hard to care what happened to them. If you like light and fluffy, this has some entertaining moments. However, much is very predictable or downright silly.
This book is a jewel and wish there were more like it. the characters are funny and good lessons are learned.
This was my first Kate Morton and I would listen to another. Good character development and interesting story with many twists and turns. Great book to escape to another time and place.
The narration is terrible! I tried to overlook this and just listen to the story, but it fell flat. There are a few interesting moments surrrounded by hours of awkwardness and boredom. Don't want to spoil the ending, but there is no ending. Ugh.
The story might become interesting, but I cannot make it past every sentence dripping in description. It is just too painful to endure.
Very dark, painful and depressing! I read Down River and thought this story sounded interesting; however, it was a huge disappointment that I could not finish. The story is very repetitive with over-dramatic gloomy descriptions.The narration is also poor with lots of breathing, pausing and swallowing. Don't waste your credit unless you are looking for punishing words of agonizing torture.
Beautiful story with many twists and turns. Great characters that leave you wanted to learn more.
