I have paid for books that were not nearly as well done.

I dislike the GOP more than this author does, but this is not "A Novel." This is some inter-related short stories padded out with endless descriptions of food, digging for clams, lust gone bad, how evil and greedy women are, and a guy who talks to himself. Plus, it doesn't end so much as stop abruptly -- if I can use the word abrupt for a 500+ page ramble. Not worth free.

I literally could not put this one down. Engaging and believable characters and a real world plot that keeps you wanting to find out what is going to happen next. This one could keep you up and reading late into the night so you may want to save it for a rainy day before you start on it. I will definately be looking for more novels by this author.
