Twenty years later, the body is finally found, and the friends reunite. Only Quentin has a lot to lose, if he shows up. His whole life can be destroyed if his secret is revealed!
I loved following Quentin throughout the twenty plus years of the book. That character was the most developed. However, I felt that the book, with its many main characters, was somewhat scattered. The mystery was fun, and a mystery lover will enjoy it.
I was given this book in exchange for an unbiased review.
I don't often give up on books. Rather, I soldier on, thinking that they'll match their reviewed promise..This one? I gave up 40 pages into it. The writing? Classic Schoolgirl Style. Arch, & cutesy-poo. The characters? Cute names, not all that interesting. The plot? Didn't stick with it long enough to form an opinion.
This book is not a mystery--the answer of "who dunnit" is given half way through the book--but is supposed to be a character study of how events shape us. The focus is on Judith, who made the biggest change, but her changes were not made because of the events of that night. The other friends really don't seem to have been propelled on trajectories as a result of the incident, either. In fact, they seemed much the same as when they were college students. On the whole, I didn't feel this novel fulfilled it's role as a character study.
The plot was interesting, but not compelling. The writing was good, but not outstanding. Judith's character was well fleshed and I enjoyed the parts of the story told from her first-person perspective. The rest of the story, told from third-person about the other characters, just didn't feel as alive or even connected. In addition, the switches between point-of-view, time, and/or place were not always smooth.
Long Black Veil is easy and quick to read, and brings up some interesting discussion points, but overall does not meet it's full potential and, as a result, is an average novel instead of a great one.
