Linda Martin (lindajm) | 15 comments Hi there... I have an audiobook version of this book and will start listening later today.

Linda Martin (lindajm) | 15 comments Interesting premise, but I'm already getting a bit tired of the dialect and stereotyped characters. The audiobook is about 10 hours long, and I'm 2 hours into it. Good reader.

Linda Martin (lindajm) | 15 comments I'm still reading this - I've been very distracted this month. I'm more than 1/2 way through it now.

Linda Martin (lindajm) | 15 comments I'm finished now... I wonder if anyone else is reading it. The second half of the book kept my attention better than the first half. Something about getting past that half-way mark makes a book draw me on quickly to the finish.

I definitely want to read it, but I'm just over-committed this month and haven't gotten to it.
