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...

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.
shhh.... can't you see I am reading?
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!
I'm in the middle of the road on that one, but leaning slightly toward "yes."
Chet made the book.
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!
