I usually don?t go back to re-read reviews - but I was looking for another book to read and since I loved this book and fell in love with Charles Fraziers voice - soft and southern. I thought I would see if he has done any other work.
I saw people saying he didn?t do a good job, I wholeheartedly disagree - I love his voice and would love to hear anything else he chooses to read.
Let me start by saying that I did not finish the book. I gave it a valiant effort, it was a book club choice or I would have given up much sooner than 5 ½ hours into it. I kept waiting for a real storyline, but it was just suicide, deep depression and selfish personalities.
There is really no storyline – just one boring depressing life after another… arrrghhh so frustrating to waste a credit…
I kind of stumbled on this series - and thought that I would try it since it received so many rave reviews. I usually read thrillers/suspense novels, but I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the narration was fantastic. I just skipped over the highly descriptive sex scenes but the story is very engrossing and I had a difficult time putting it down, in spite of the sex.
I was very disappointed to see that the follow up books in the series are all abridged, except the latest but that didn’t stop me – I had to get them all, now I am waiting for the next installment and the movie!
This book brings you into the life of an 8 year old, dealing with issues that no child should have to face. She is so innocent, but as the reader be prepared to be outraged, to cry and to laugh. I really enjoyed the voice of Cassandra Morris, she does a fabulous job. I think this book will stay with me for a long time. I finished it this morning, and it has been on my mind all day.
I think it would be a lot more entertaining to a much younger person. Any adult over 40 will be bored to tears! This story was entertaining on occasion but mostly outrages, utterly absurd, and pointless.
