Sadly, this audiobook just didn't grab my attention. Characters are introduced in depth, and you expect to go on a journey with them, but their stories are abruptly abandoned. You have a feeling of being hard done by.

This is one of the best listens I've encountered in a long time. For me the writing ranks among giants like "Cold Mountain" (Charles Frazier) and "East of the Mountains" (David Guterson). David Rhodes' command of the English language approaches the poetic, and his economy of expression is such that not one word is wasted on frivolous description or exaggerated emotion. I would normally subtract a star for this ending - I thought it just barely established the characters in kind of a stable oasis, and the narrative could have used just one or two more sentences. It seemed the writing stopped rather abruptly and could have used a few more words - just a few - to cushion the blow. But that opinion is hardly enough to detract from this work of elegant fiction. Can't wait to read it again, now that I know the characters better!

For those who crave a bigger life essence, the kind found in community, here is "Driftless." Go to your favorite reading chair, sit back and relax. Take a deep breath and exhale your present inner "situation". You are in for a story. There's a lot going on in Words, Wisconsin. Wait till you meet everybody!
