elegant and thought-provoking
great story, great narrator, but you have to listen carefully or you may miss key plot moments. i love Ethan Canin and this novel is a thoughtful portrayl of American politics, public and private values, family and growing-up. I will say, there are definite shades of the Kennedy legacy and Chappaquidick that are kind of obvious from the beginning, but there are plenty of other surprises that keep you interested until the end.

Kept me listening even when I shouldn't have been
Just an engrossing, fast moving story set during an historical period I knew little about so I learned something too. Good characters and not so many you were confused but enough to keep things interesting and move the story from several different perspectives.
