I now understand what one of my coworkers meant when he said he grew up "in the Valley" and just gave me a strange look, like I would never understand what his early life had been like. After listening to this book, I actually think I have a good idea. The narrator was outstanding. I would play excerpts for my friends, some parts were hilarious. I'm looking forward to his next book.
I had high hopes, but it was nowhere as good as The Shining was. Some parts of it were enjoyable, but overall I can't recommend it.
By the time you finish this entertaining story you will have learned a lot about the history of Texas without even knowing it. The multiple narrators worked out well. Kate Mulgrew especially was very good.
I really enjoyed this book, it kept me on my toes all the way through. The narrator's voice reminded me of a British character on the TV series "The Newsroom", her accent was delightful. I would definitely listen to more by this author.
I really wanted to like this book, but I had to give up after I was about half way through. The story was very slow and dull. The narrator made very little voice distinction between any of the characters, so I kept getting them confused.
