I loved this book!

I still think about this book and miss the characters. I recommend this book to anyone who likes a story about many different people and how their lives intertwine.

Not worth the read!

About a family- the dad is a drunk, mom works hard but keeps getting into messes, she falls for a con man. The kids get in trouble, dad can't get sober. This book is hard to follow, I just wanted to be finished with it. Not worth reading.

    A long slow boring read

    I rarely have trouble getting through a book - this one was a test - slow moving, undeveloped characters - no plot, just plod - not a single character in a book with far too many worth rooting for.

    Not my cup of tea....

    I got about 160 pages into this book and I just had to stop. I thought it sounded fascinating, as I usually love books about small town life and the people who inhabit those small towns. But, I just couldn't get into this one. None of the characters are likable to me. The only one I liked even a little bit was the boy, Benjy. Maybe it just wasn't my cup of tea. Just couldn't waste any more time on it.
