Publisher's Summary

Napawaupee, Wisconsin is the hometown you all remember, where the hottest action going is high school football or statutory rape and booze is the salve for what Jesus can't heal." The Connollys of Napawaupee are the quintessential small-town family. They are the "royals of a cast-off kingdom, curators of an inbred knowledge, the keepers of a dull flame."

In The Brothers Connolly, three generations of this proud, prosaic family will be defined by their aspirations, their vices and, finally, by tragedy.

    I love this book. Glad they used a great narrarator to perform it. Extremely well-written, and a great story that will stick with you long, long after you're done. Highly recommended!

    All characters are good.

    Story
    "Scary real small town family conflict..."
    What made the experience of listening to The Brothers Connolly the most enjoyable?

    Exceptionally written and narrated. The author is very articulate and the narrator brings you into the lives of this family. I could actually see every family member as the book unfolds.


    What other book might you compare The Brothers Connolly to and why?

    The Brothers Karamazov, maybe? This could just be because of the name, but also because of the family fighting for survival with a crazed family member.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scenes were centered around Jack. A homosexual who had to move home after failed attempts to be a playwright in the big city.


    If you could rename The Brothers Connolly, what would you call it?

    Lives in small town America.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend this book!
