This story made me feel as if I were part of a history that I wish had never existed. Growing up in the south in the 60s and 70s, prejudice was an unavoidable reality of life. It was as if I became Paul Edward and began to see the world in a different time and light. And COLOR. It made me question my own heritage.
All personal reactions aside, this is a gripping tale with vivid characters and heartmoving twists. EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!!!!
After reading the other reviews I am truly shocked. Am I the only listener who found Koontz' attempts at humor redundantly lame?
As one star is the lowest rating possible, I guess that's my score, but it truly deserved a -0 in my opinion.
This was one of the rare books that so fully absorbed me that I forgot to worry or think of anything else. No "rewind because I've lost track" throughout the entire story. The author is very descriptive in creating the characters, enabling you to envision the events as they unfold. Equally as important, the narrator was more than excellent! While this type of fiction will never make a classic or provoke mind altering thought, if what you want is entertainment value, this is for you.
