    A train wreck at best

    This novel wasn't terrible but wasn't delightful or thought provoking in the least. The characters were shallow and underdeveloped. The main character, Ransom Hill, is manic and a washed up rock n roll artist which is all very intriguing for the first 100 pages but then quickly becomes self deprecating and whiney. The back and forth, although sometimes a pleasure to read, is also hard to follow. Some of the characters are spanish speaking and neither spanish 101 nor the context of the conversation will help the reader fully understand what is being said. It's not the worst book I've ever read but it certainly isn't the best. I started skimming pages in the last few chapters just to get the jist of what happened.

    Overkill, over the top, and overrated!

    It's happened before; an author wins some "prestigious" literary fellowship award, only to blow up his prose like a balloon filled with too much hot air. This book's wanderings and rantings, the author's stream of consciousness pouring forth like muddy waters, became tedious at best, boring at worst, losing possibly a very good story along the way.

    The truth will set you free!!

    If your Momma, or your Mammy, ever told you to 'Hesh up now, that's none of your'n business!', it's time that you opened the pages of BACK TO WANDO PASSO by David Payne and start making it your business in a really interesting and absorbing way. Like cream rising to the surface of churned milk, or dead fish rising to the river's surface after a big storm, truth will rise up and be told by someone eventually. In this book, Payne takes us on a journey of family history, told in parallel chapters from Civil War days and the present days in and around Charleston and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Everything secret or buried, and even those things that seem to be obvious today, will all be opened in the light of truth in this magnificently written tale of the plantation, Waldo Passo, in South Carolina. AND, like the Good Book says - The truth will set you free!'. A must read for anyone who cares about people and truth!
