colorfully written, rich in texture, characters and drama, this work shows Frazier's understanding of life in the Appalachians. Will Patton's, smooth slight southern drawl reading lends a depth to the story that is not achieved in the book form. a thoroughly enjoyable listen.

Not as much mystery and thriller as I was expecting.
The writing is good. Lots of wonderful descriptions of the nature and mountains of Appalachian North Carolina. It's lonely, wild, serene.
The characters are interesting and broken. This is more a story of family and healing.
This would make a great movie. Hollywood would add the terror and horror this family went through in a dramatic, on-the-edge-of-your-seat way.

Not comparable to Cold Mountain, which probably cannot be matched. I liked it well enough & always enjoy listening to Will Patton read.
