I'm a fan of Ms McCrumb but struggled to get through this one. too much time spent describing the reporters lives, not enough about the actual murder.
Reading about the Southwest Virginia of 80 years ago was very meaningful, especially the idea that people there weren't very different from other Americans. But the narrator says "Appalayshun," so the narration seems to do to the book what the "big-city reporters" did to the original account of the trial. Sharyn McCrumb should read her own books, or someone from this area should read them.
