As mentioned by others...this book is slow. It s l o w l y unwinds the vile turpitude pervasive in 1968 rural Mississippi. Because of that slow, sinuous looping you actually feel stifled by the heat, revolted by the stink, heart broken by the desperation and the poverty, and scared as hell of the relentless rage that is harbored by others. The slow unraveling of the complicated relationships between the characters - some you will want to protect, others you will want to smother yourself. The extended uncoiling right up to the inevitable end - I think these characters will occupy my mind for some time.
Awesome book. It’s very well written with rich characters. Some you will love and some you will hate.
It’s slow paced but well worth sticking with and enjoying getting to know the characters and their lives.
Excellent, a great and beautiful book. Tom Stechschulte is a wonderful reader. Larry Brown is a national treasure.
