Huck, a young man from Weston, Mississippi, sits alone in a diner, pondering the misery of his life. The weather is dreary, much like Huck's life at the moment. An elderly gentleman joins him for a cup of coffee while riding out the storm. Huck's life will never be the same.
Love, loss, friendship, and betrayal play out against the backdrop of the deep South. Bloom is the story of a young man's struggle with life, a kindly old soul's wisdom, and a love so powerful that even darkness cannot prevail in the lives of the willful. Full of raw emotion, and a stark, but real view of life, Bloom is a story guaranteed to resonate with listeners on many levels, and shows we are more than the sum of our experiences.
I wanted to like this. The story had potential but it just didn't seem to get fully developed. I didn't stay focused while I was reading. This just didn't hold my attention. I tried reading first, then I resorted to the audio book in the car, where I had no choice but to listen. And that didn't help at all. The narrator..... kept..... pausing..... in.... the.... middle.... of sentences. I tried to change the narration speed but then it just sounded like a chipmunk and still had the awkward misplaced pauses.
