    This book took me quite a while to finish, but I don't think that's to its discredit. It's not a page-turner, but once you finish it stays with you (the ending is a kicker!). Its a thoughtful book, and a carefully written one. I've described it to friends as what To Kill a Mockingbird would be if Atticus was a jerk instead of a hero.

    The majority of the story is about Hilly Wise, the son of obnoxi

    The majority of the story is about Hilly Wise, the son of obnoxious nouveau riche Jewish attorney, Arthur Wise. Hilly has a near-stalking obsession with Savannah, a poor local black girl he knew briefly when they were teenagers. His odyssey of trying to contact her through the convening years is two-fold. He wants to rekindle what he perceives as a love interest between them, of which she seems to be indifferent, but also because he feels responsible for sending Savannah's Uncle Lem, Arthur Wise's handyman, to prison for stealing some papers from Arthur's briefcase. These papers play a part in a big family secret that is revealed on the last page of which, I might add, I just assumed during the course of reading the book. The stories I really enjoy are ones that leave me satisfied as I close the book for the last time. Satisfied in that, I'm glad I took the time to read it and also a feeling of sadness that the story is over. I never got that with this book.
