    Holland and Niles Perry are identical thirteen-year-old twins. They are close, close enough, almost, to read each other's thoughts, but they couldn't be more different. Holland is bold and mischievous, a bad influence, while Niles is kind and eager to please, the sort of boy who makes parents proud. The Perrys live in the bucolic New England town their family settled centuries ago, and as it happens, the extended clan has gathered at its ancestral farm this summer to mourn the death of the twins' father in a most unfortunate accident.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Frankly, after an hour or so I just couldn't take it anymore. It's wordy and slow moving. Also, you can anticipate the increasing horrors to come. Perhaps someone with a lot of patience or who needs something to listen to in order to fall asleep might appreciate it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Thomas Tryon again?

    No.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Read something else.

    What do you do? Whenever people asked him, Eric Cash used to have a dozen answers. Artist, actor, screenwriter...But now he's 35 years old and he's still living downtown, still in the restaurant business, working night shifts and serving the people he always wanted to be. What does Eric do? He manages.

    Richard Delman says: "Eerily real"
    "Not a novel by anyone's standard"

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Many \people must have, I can't imagine why.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Richard Price again?

    Yes, he's a great writer, but this one is missing.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Bobby Cannavale?

    Yes.


    What character would you cut from Lush Life?

    There is no real character development, so I really can't say.


    Any additional comments?

    Like some other reviewers I thought surely there is more to this book--but it just ends. I suspect the author submitted this part for an advance and just left it at that.
