    " The beginning was a little slow and picked up pace only gradually, so I ended up putting this book down for a while and coming back to it. I finished it on the second attempt and found it to be a pretty good read that seemed faithful to the history of the Deep South in the early 1900s. "

    " I was lured in to reading this book by the nice review by Richard Russo on the back, but it was truly awful, with the possible exception of the very last scene. It's full of silly sentences like "The mill manager felt as though a giant electric switch had been thrown off, stopping everything in his life." And it features offensively unbelievable baby-killing Sicilian villains. The only reason I finished reading it was because the library was closed over Labor Day weekend and I didn't have anything else. So I guess that I can say that it was at least better than a book-less ride home on the metro, but that's about it. "

    " Set in Louisiana- has its perks but beware some of parts of the story can get confusing "

    " This is a pretty dark book but I really enjoyed it. Something of a Southern gothic but a little bit more crude and violent. "
