"An unusually engaging novel by a very fine writer who knows exactly what she's doing." (Lee Smith, author of The Last Girls)
I may never know whether this novel has any merit or not. The voice, accent, and phrasing of the narrator is so irritating I just can't listen to it. I gave it a go for nearly an hour and couldn't take it any longer.
Let me start with the narrator: she has an awful fake Southern accent that grated on my nerves terribly. Eventually I got somewhat used to it, so if the story had been good, I might have been able to overlook the narrator.
Unfortunately, the story was fairly awful, as well. Gilmore is a good writer, but the story is simple, sappy, and, ultimately, boring. We've heard all this before, and the platitudes are so overdone I'm embarrassed that I wasted my credit on this selection.
Yes It was a little different from most of thi genre
Yes.. Think she painted real clear descriptions
No. Don't go to movies
