1.0 out of 5 stars a stinker!, February 1, 2000
This review is from: Vinegar Hill (Oprah's Book Club) (Paperback)
One star for this one is over-kill! There is little progression of plot (where is it?). The listless (and shiftless) characters lack depth and importance. The author is struggling to take her people and story somewhere but they don't want to go. We keep flashing back to events that have no relevance to the story. I'm left wondering "What was that all about? Do I care?". These detours explain nothing, and do nothing to further the long awaited plot. The author writes beautifully but leads us in circles. I'm left wondering why I bothered forcing myself through this chaos of one-dimensional characters that don't get saved. They're left to wallow in this stinking dung heap. This one is not good enough for the thrift store.
