So badly written, I don't think it was even edited for consistency, fluidity and grammar. Appalling errors. It's like one long list of names and places and no stories. Even though I find the subject of snake handling fascinating, it's difficult to follow because of the author's own confusion and repetition, ruining whatever patience I may have had to plough through the tedium. Unbelievable, really. How did this get published?!

Very dry. Feels like you are just reading lists of names and places.
