I really enjoyed Dancing at the Rascal Fair, so I decided to try some more Ivan Doig. This audiobook was disappointing relative to the Rascal Fair. I think this was due both to the story, the point of view (a 14 year old boy) and the narrator.

Publisher's Summary

Part of Ivan Doig’s acclaimed Montana trilogy, English Creek revolves around Jick McCaskill, a 14-year-old growing up in 1930s Montana. This incandescent coming-of-age tale dramatizes the climatic events of one summer that inevitably mark Jick’s awakening from childhood to adulthood. Through his eyes we see those nearest and dearest to him at a turning point - "where all four of our lives made their bend" - and discover along with him his own connection to the land, to history, and to the deep-fathomed mysteries of one's kin and one's self.
