I kept thinking the main character was kind of wierd, but at the same time I really liked listening to his thoughts. Without treating them as victims - it gives a unique point of view on how mental illness affects family members.I did not want it to end - and when it did I wanted a sequal.
Our Lady of the Forest by Gutterson is on same theme, but better writing.
I enjoyed this book once I found the website to follow along. His descriptions are so good - but the pictures and maps on the website really help to follow along.
I love the ending of this book. I love personalizing the ending - or changing the ending. Reading the books is very enjoyable and easy. The ending akes you think!
this was a fun, fun book. I just love picturing in my mind these wackey people
A very interesting man - I enjoyed the way the book looked at all aspects of his interesting -both the good and the bad
It seems in so many stories of women in the 1930's they are the downtrodden of the depression of America. This is a different view - for both Clara and her sister. Something new and different. I enjoyed the whole book
At first I thought the corney humor was light an funny. But it kept on and on.I thought this was just dumb and predictable. Disappoiting,too, and one of my favorite authors
I like this author's plot twists and turns. Always intriguing. The female characters a little predictable, but still a good listen.
I liked this ok.However, the strange occupations, unusual family members, whacky statements that in the beginning were quirky and funny soon became corney and dumb.Though I usually like the long version, this one I would suggest abbriged. Not the best by this author.
