it was ok

Eh. Somehow I missed that this was a novel in verse. I greatly dislike novels in verse, so that was many strikes against this one straight out of the gate. Even worse, it's in dialect. I love Shakespeare and all, but these thees and thous just made me ill. Most modern authors can't get away with writing dialects they don't use themselves, and neither can Helphill. Blech. So nope, I didn't like it much, but it wasn't horrible - just not my cup of tea. I'll probably recommend it to library patrons though.
