The story had potential but never developed anything new or interesting after the 1st 1/4 of the book. Steven King should be embarassed to have endorsed this farse.
one the the best
vivid imagery of a time past
This would make a great miniseries (sorta like lonesome dove).
should be required reading for Florida high schoolers.
This is basically a dime store teenage romance novel written in s slightly better than average style. Why did it cost 2 audio credits to purchase?--because the editors know you are not likely to want to read the rest of the series. Pure drek.
This author can write. I very much enjoyed the Kite Runner but wondered if the success was freshman luck. Not the case. this is very much a similar tale but told from a female persperctive. Terrific!. Now I can't wait to see if he can write something this well not involving the Afghan war. I hope so....
I am a Grisham fan but this work is agonizingly dry and boring. The story is a compelling one but would have been better served with a 2-3 hour novella, not the 12 hour treatise that Grisham has given us.
One of the better listens of late. Story is told first person from 2 time perspectives with great naration, particularly from the elder "jacob".
I listened to this audiobook primarily on the recommendations that I read on audible.com.
Most of the reviews were right on the money. This is a very well told story and is enhanced by the the accent of the narrator/author. Do your self a favor and READ IT. My goal for the day is to convince my teenage daughter to give it a chance. Once you get beyond the first couple of chapters you can't put it down.
