This story had me engaged from the very beginning; you quickly begin to care about its characters and their lives. The narrator was excellent and a pleasure to listen to. The story weaves in and out of the lives of a particular southern family with all of the trials and tribulations of a very dysfunctional family, the details of which are gradually revealed throughout the story, and the issues that the siblings of this family eventually have to deal with.
There is much humor in the story, revealing all of the craziness of this family in a lighthearted way, for the most part.
The only thing that I had to get used to was that the story goes back and forth between the young family and the grown-up family. I thought I was missing certain things until I realized that those things had not been divulged yet. And my questions were answered further on in the book.
All in all, I loved this book and did not want it to end.
