Spectacular writing: extended descriptions of characters, moods, settings. A very difficult read for me in that I really liked the flow of words that is his rich style but (wow!), the characters. Nary ... Read full review

Faulkner ripoff! But not bad. I think I prefer Kristen Stewart as Peyton Loftis in the movie version. I think she could be amazing. (Confession: That's the only reason I read this.) Read full review

This is one of those books that builds and builds and you wonder why on earth you are wasting your time reading it, and then when you get to the end- it all makes sense and it was all worth it. Read full review
