   deep, well-written, must check out author!
It also follows a family through difficult times, including the death of a son. While the book's main characters were rather stereotypical, the author has an amazing way with her imagery. We also see the ghosts that the family carries with them, literally, which brought for a nice twist and kept me thinking.
Though I enjoyed the story, I found it too descriptive and depressing. Definitely not a light read of any means and left me feeling disturbed, he said.
   Boring plot, no interesting character development, not worth my time
Overall, this was a very flat reading experience. There are some truly worthwhile classics out there to be savored.
   Prose that weeps love and family.
I started this book with family history in mind and ago long consequences behind the story, Raymond said. I was not disappointed with the lives so clear and tragic, Graham said. So many heartfelt connections and care. He leaves behind a loving memory of his family. Sir Philip would have read the entire book alone.
   A visit to the past injustices, and the unresolved world of wandering souls.
The South has a rich history of racial injustice. The story of the Rev. Jay Reeves acknowledges the reality and belief systems of the South. It's about love, not race, and the bond that exists despite that reality.
   The worst book I ever read
The hardest chemo to keep you alive isn't always kind. I always embrace a story and read the book to the last page, he said. I can't remember when I wanted so badly to end a book, but she said it was "pretty good." As a voracious reader, I hate to insult a writer or their vision. The characters had no depth and she didn't allow them to grow some deserved to others, she said. No wonder SALVAGEDATA came to town: The book took you no where. I would never read another book by this author.
   Story is meh. But you’ll probably learn valuable lessons.
Halfway through, I couldn't stop reading. I'm disappointed in myself for giving up. I just wasn't motivated to read it. What I really care about is the people who created these characters, Sosa said. There are some valuable life lessons and good perspectives I could've learned, but the story was just meh.
   Very Serious Book
I've read it as part of a book club. I was able to appreciate the author's writing, and the story and the characters that were constructed, Morgenthau said. But mostly I couldn't get past the depressing storyline. None of the characters seemed to develop in any way, it was just a sad story of a broken family, McBride said. The addition of ghosts threw me a little bit, I'm not sure that they actually added anything of value, he said. Part of it made the whole thing a bit unbelievable for me, he said. Overall, I felt that the story was going somewhere for most of the book, but then was disappointed when it didn't happen. It may have won a lot of awards but it's not a book I would recommend to a friend.
   Read it and be prepared to be awakened to ruthless and magical humanity.
Highly recommended for the language, the imagery and the story. The characters are and the emotions they communicate, the pain they share, the love they feel, these are the qualities that imbue this book. Humanity survives. In a generous gesture of compassion, McCartney said: "Life is defined by suffering.
   If you buy as a gift, read it yourself first. Higher * for writing were lowered by confusing format.
I get a book that I don't like and I usually get it back with a couple of caveats. The writing is great, but the format is rather confusing, because each chapter is told by a different character. As a retired writereditor, I kept thinking that the editing would have saved it for me. Constantly referred to book jacket by the writer as 'ghosts'.
