A beautiful love story

This is way better than The Notebook (my favorite love story). Although a few inconsistencies had me scratching my head. Was there talk of the Internet and Photoshop, and a line that said, "She pulled her cell phone out of her pocket and smiled..."? But yet this was supposedly 1992. Those inconsistencies don't ruin the story, but it takes the rating down to four stars. Maybe I'm missing something or misheard it, but "hiccups" like that throw off the flow of the book and take it down a notch below spectacular. The narrator kept changing up the level of his southern drawl during the narration, which was also a bit distracting. Still, overall it was a great story and well worth the credit.

Could be a good story, but descriptions run on

Excrutiating detail of river, cabins, tatoos, people....so slow narrating every word. Then pace picks up during dialog and back to lumbering through the details. An effort to get through the story.
