    I actually found the last third the most engaging!

    Don't let me put you off. We've already had a discussion about premature opinion sharing. I just couldn't resist :).
    It has picked up again I must admit (just finishing) :thumbs:.

    I actually did enjoy his tales of mountain folk's wild and proud behaviour. He obviously loves his family very much, despite their obvious flaws, and I found that quite warming. A shorter book or essay on just this stuff would have been much more palatable for me.

    The book sure is compelling! Was worried I might not be able to read it before Saturday, but am 200 pages in having started yesterday!

    It's prompted me to re-read Middlemarch.

    At the moment it reminds me a bit of The Lovely Bones.
