really liked it
Read in July, 2009

It took me a little while to get into this book, again it was in audible format, so the reader might have had something to do with that. It is verbose, and for me when listening to a book I can get lost in the poetry of the words and not get the meaning, so i had to restart a few times to figure out who was who and what was going on. I really enjoyed this book and the language though and got used to the reader after a bit. It is an interesting take on the 1950's deep south, giving us a view of the roles of whites and blacks and the prejudice, as well as not, of both groups. I think if I read this in book form I'd have given it a 4.5 because I could have savored the language more.
