Book review, of sorts.

"The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter The Heart is a Lonely Hunter"

Not sure how to take this book...I liked it, yes, and I enjoyed it. The characters, though, were almost more than I could take. This is a feature I find consistently in novels about the South, that somehow the people portrayed are a little beyond even what I can imagine finding in a book. I suppose if I had ever lived in the North, I would be able to say the same. But I haven't, so it's the 'darkies' and the 'preacher man' and the 'aspiring actress' that I just don't recognize from my own world. Other than that, an awesome story. Very visual, yet sparse?
