I agree with another reviewer here that the themes in this book were stale and worn out. I would also add that I thought the conflicts and issues were overworked and belabored to the point of being tiresome. In addition, much of the profanity and rough talk felt awkward, forced and seemed unnecessary in the story.
Even worse, it was difficult to feel connected to the characters and get a sense of flow in the plot when the book was just over 8 hours long and had 78 chapters--some only 2 minutes long. It made the whole thing feel choppy, jumpy and really uneven.

It was okay. I think the themes were pretty worn out, though there were many - parent/child relationship strained, lengthy marriage becoming a bit stale, coworker issues, sibling issues, coming of age issues, race issues - and none of them were dealt with in any fresh way, so it was a bit dull in that aspect. But, it was a nice little town with a familiar scene and a comforting vibe, so I don't regret listening to it. The narrator was pretty good, but did make the women all sound a bit dumb.
