good prose not quite the story I think the author was hoping to write
Would you try another book from Harold Frederic and/or John Chatty?
Frederic's stature as a author of merit rests on this work, but--like Harper Lee (To Kill a Mockingbird) it's enough. Unlike Lee's novel, it addresses America's struggle with religious fanaticism rather than race.
What could Harold Frederic have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
The novel's deterministic plot is unrelieved by humor, and characters lack sympathy.
How could the performance have been better?
This book deserves better narration. THe reader drones from start to finish, with no variation in pitch or dialect to distinguish the speech of various characters. Unfortunately, this is the only audible version currently available.
