  • Book Rating: 2/5

Not the most memorable story I have ever heard. Writing this review several months after listening to the story, I have a hard time remembering the characters and plot lines. I know that this novel attempts to present a realistic picture of bygone days and real life isn't as riveting as a good novel, but I'd suggest picking a more memorable story.

  • Book Rating: 5/5

This is a wonderful American novel. Its strength is the sense of place it conveys for life of immigrants struggling (and surviving, and not) in the country and in town.
