Russell Banks is one of my favorite authors and I was looking forward to listening to this, but as an audiobook, I found the story too dense to cross mediums. What is normally a treat to read as you build the world word by word at your pace, becomes burdensome as you are forced to build it at the narrators pace and that just wasn’t fun for me.
Headed to the book store for a hard copy!!
Hard to believe that Banks wrote this tedious tale. The parts that involve the struggling working class family that packs it in and moves to Florida, is engrossing and realistic but the part that starts following Haitian culture, characters and plot twists bored the pants off me. The book became its own metaphor: drift, drift, drift.
