I’m still trying to figure out what all the fuss is about. Too many characters. Too many side stories. And then a somewhat anticlimactic ending. Feel like my time was wasted.

Awful. No one in the book club was able to finish the book. Meandering, changing timelines, slow and little plot. Really hoped for more - I want my Audible credit back!

James McBride is a delight. He weaves a story that is filled with the magic of the human spirit, and the importance of community that has been stripped away by modern technology. The book begs us to go back to a time where things were different.. and genuine connection to our fellow man meant everything.

A lovely book that shows we are all given good and bad aspects of life but how we use it really determines our "success". Lovely seeing diverse communities come together and "win"
