Publisher's Summary

It is the Great Depression of the 1930s, and a passionate young man from Paterson, New Jersey, leaves home to find his fortune. What he finds, on a cold and lonely night in the Adirondack Mountains, is a vision of life so different from his own that it changes his destiny, leading him from the side of a railroad track to a magical place called Loon Lake.

Ulysses-like

Very difficult going for the first half, but the payoff is worthwhile. Arguably more graphic than needed.

Not my cup of tea.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I was lost most of the time. This has happened to me before, with this author. Some of his books I love...others, not so much. The performance was great!!

Would you ever listen to anything by E. L. Doctorow again?

I would try.

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

No...but he was great. Actually that was the main reason I continued listening to this book to the very end.

Was Loon Lake worth the listening time?

Not for me.
