Ara I agree with you 100%. And I also made the comparison to Capote's incredible "In Cold Blood" and, of course, this book pales in that comparison.

message 2: by Casey (new)

Casey I totaly agree the characters were so under developed which is just sad IMO because they held such potential.

message 3: by Katie (new)

Katie You've summed up my thoughts perfectly.

message 4: by Marnee (new)

Marnee Dearman Uh most of the characters were not to be developed. The story was really about Svannah, not the individual characters. It was not even about Jim Williams. The writer even made this clear at the end of the novel.

message 5: by Wingreen (new)

Wingreen I agree. This book is a real struggle to get through. Life's too short to waste anymore time on it when there are so many better books out there (somewhere!) waiting to be read.

Sarah I completely agree. I'm almost done right now and the end can't come fast enough

message 7: by Ap (new)

Ap I disagree and I feel like by not developing them at once the author allows for a specific sense of mystery for the reader on each character.

Lisa M. He didn't move to Savannah to learn about the murders. This is made clear throughout the beginning, and rest of the book ...
