Grizzly, thoughtful, suspenseful
I enjoyed the book over all, mostly because of Judith Ivy's amazing voice and accents. The story was great in parts, but had some gaps and pieces that annoyingly, didn't quite fit together. I thought the character development was good, and it was this aspect, and the broken marriage piece, that for me, held the writing together.

This book is the author's first. It's possible she has learned to tighten up loose ends in subsequent works. I would try another by her because I enjoy the genre and I love the south, which is where the stories are set.
I love the narrator so much, I'll seek her out to hear additional books read by her.
I think I got a picture of Ree, the main character, in the opening moments of the story as she looks across the creek in front of her house longingly at meat hanging in a neighbor's yard.
