I really enjoyed this book . The story grabs you with the interesting and widely- varying characters, sometimes it is overly trite, but still a very enjoyable listen. Except there are several chapters with simply gratuitous grossness.
Another problem was the narrator. He mispronunced so many regular old words that it was a bit scary. Scary that no one caught it.
One was ACROST instead of across. And, no, it was not a character 's dialogue. It was in a description.
Other then nails on a blackboard issues like that, I would recommend this book to all who are not squeamish.
The vivid description of field dressing a deer was out of place and quite graphic and disturbing as were several other scenes. And I work in a trauma center ER!
So were several other bits- made me give it 4 instead of 5. Really should be 3.5 for story .
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
No. I loved the last T. Greenwood book I read, but this one did not measure up.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
There were too many subplots: kleptomaniac wife, hoarder Grandpa, bullied teen, etc.
I found the story very dark with no light parts or humor - something I do not enjoy well at all.
It was also difficult to be sympathetic with anyone other than Gracie or Trevor.
What didn’t you like about Joel Richards’s performance?
My number one issue was that he did not pause between chapters! When I started the book I had to keep backing it up to figure out where I was and if I skipped a part! Very annoying.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
