American Gothic

solidly written and solidly performed. This reads like a critique of Southern Culture mixed with horror.

Great read….but…

Well read, well written, but hard to listen to with the language and attitude towards people of color. Wouldn’t read it again but she is a great writer.

Totally Confused

My daughter gifted me this book, so i tried really hard to like it - never got there! The narrator read with the oddest and most indifferent inflections throughout no matter what was happening in the story, She just kept on going with the same disinterested and non-relating voice. I just don't understand what her intent was, but the result was that I could not finish. Even though I listened to two and a half of the stories I could not get into the story. so many useless details. This is a perfect example of how narration can totally not go along with a story. if I bought this i would return it.
