The story was good but I think it could have been written better without all the foul language, suicide references, disrespect to God, and drug references. Its refreshing to read a book without all the poor language uses and this book disappointed me in this respect. The story could have been great alone without the poor writing.

ook, I'm all for using the King's English at most times, esp. throughout a novel. (Lots of dialogue) but you are looking at this line of tragic events through your own set of strict moral values. Are you quite aware that there are thousands of people who, while they have a wide vocabulary; while under stress, and sometimes JUST cuz it feels RIGHT, let a string of expletives go. And no one dies or goes deaf. It is just not how YOU live.
I am SO sick of people assuming that tragedy or even life's difficulties "should be" handled the way THEY would. Or just living life every day doing the every day things we all do. You decided these fictional people were using too many bad words, taking too many pills and swearing too much.
Well baby, WHO ASKED YOU? Why don't you do this? Try asking the writer, if possibly this was in the plot purposefully, to evidence the daughter's struggle even FURTHER.
This world is a giant pot of mixed up different types with all types of defense mechanisms; some quite unhealthy. Remember that lesson they taught you in church about understanding things from another's view? Walk a mile in another'smoccosins to know their struggle right? Try that before you judge ANYONE for those behaviors again. That is what Christ would do.
