I listened to one short story after another, and then went back and listened to some of them again.
Joe Hill is a wonderful and creative writer. I then learned that he is Stephen King's son, but his talent is his own.
The concept sounded interesting, and this book got some good reviews, so I bought it. I'm not sure I'll finish it though. If I do finish, it will be because I am still hoping that the plot or the characters will be redeemed. I know this is never gong to happen, and I am leaning on the side of deletion. The heroine is not at all believable, unless you are looking for a bad read about an emotionally immature, more than superficial young woman. She has the stupidest thought processes, and does the stupidest things! I don't get the first "savior" at all. The second guy is the only part of the book I like. The narrator sounds as dumb as her character. Does this make her a good reader, or a bad one? It doesn't matter in the end. Don't waste your time on this one.
I loved this book! The characters came alive, the topic is so important. The writing made it so interesting. I highly recommend "The Help."
I have not enjoyed King's books since his accident, but this one is as good as his best books. Loved the characters, the settings and the complexities.
This is actually a children's book, but I highly recommend it. I fell in love with the main character, Christopher. His autism, perceptions and ways of thinking are so endearing. He is a true hero!
