At times brilliant and engaging, at other times dull and plodding. It had a somewhat spiritual undercurrent that didn't work for me, but may resonate with other readers who have similar leanings.

Didn't care for this book. Depressing, dialog was hard to read let alone follow.

If not for the Oklahoma background, I don't know if I could have finished this book. Great writing in the beginning, but so dragged out at the end.
