Any additional comments?
Was it me or was this a little easy to figure out before it was revealed. I didn't find myself caring about the main character - or any of the others characters for that matter.

I haven't listened to much Carol Goodman; she's one of my favorite writers and other than her recent YA series, I routinely pre-order her books. River Road is the first adult book Goodman has written since I began listening to audio books.
It's a lackluster story; certainly not her best.
Goodman's older books are strongly archetypal, filled with mythological figures. They are superbly plotted, haunting stories written in beautiful prose. And perhaps that is part of the problem- really fine prose is easily buried in this audio book medium. If you enjoyed this and are new to Carol Goodman, read 'The Night Villa', The Ghost Orchid', 'The Lake of Dead Languages' or 'The Seduction of Water'.
And now I've made myself want to reread them.
