I just moved to Atlanta when I bought this book, and I loved the detail on Atlanta's history. Reminded me of Gone With the Wind in a way, only in more modern times. Highly recommended, especially if you live in Atlanta.

The story is good. Tragic but hopeful. But this book is extremely wordy! It is filled with sentences that strech on for a paragraph filled with 15 to 20 adjectives. Big on name/place dropping. After a while you learn to skim or skip them. This would have been a much better book had it been edited down to 400 pages instead of 800. The story some times got lost in all the needless words. I would only recommend this book to someone from the south (story is based in suburb of Atlanta) or someone who loves this author.

Deep and moving story. Outstanding reader who is able to change his voice to reflect different characters.
