Publisher's Summary

In the days of pre-Civil War slavery - the unforgettable novel of a shocking portion of our American heritage. The time was not all magnolia blossoms and crinolines. It was more than romance and splendor. It was debauchery and slavery, gambling tables and dens of iniquity. It was murder and forgiveness. It was all the great contradiction of life in a golden era...

    "Plantation"
    If you could sum up The Plantation in three words, what would they be?

    The steamy sexual scenes could have been eliminated, I just skimmed over them, and missed nothing as far as plot was concerned. I loved this story. The action never slowed. Great audiobook.

    Any additional comments?

    This isn't a romanticized, Gone with the Wind type of story. This is the story of human natures, good and bad, of love and deceit, of beauty and utter madness!

    Story
    ""I'm a Deavers, dammit""
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I'm in the middle of the road on that one, but leaning slightly toward "yes."


    If you’ve listened to books by George McNeill before, how does this one compare?

    No.


    Have you listened to any of Chet Williamson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Chet made the book.


    Was The Plantation worth the listening time?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    The book could be summed by two phrases -- "I'm a Deavers, dammit" along with "and his penis hardened." The story was all right. A little predictable at times but not bad. The regular sex scenes made it feel more like a trashy romance novel than a serious novel. I ended up knowing more about all of the male characters' "hard penises" than what they thought at a soulful level. The narrator made the story, though. Bravo, Chet!

    "Sex Talk"

    A little to much sex talk. Not necessary for the overall content of the story.

    "Excellent book BUT"

    The book was very good BUT, the graphic sex scenes were very unnecessary. I Would not recommend for young readers..
