    Overall

    I decided to read the book because I enjoy recent historical fiction. I was especially interested in learning about the deep South and how blacks were treated in the early 1900's. I was so disappointed. There was little depth to the book, yet such a deep subject. I thought it was slow and violence just for the sake of violence. The narration was painful. I never felt like the book took place over a hundred years. The narrative had a rather hip, sarcastic tone and absolutely no southern accent even though it was in first person and the character was from Mississippi. Too many chapters. The music at the end of some of the chapters was totally annoying and not necessary. The worst audible book I have ever listened to. I should have gone with my gut and quit an hour into it.
