Read full description of the books:
I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
This story was not what I expected at all. I thought I was diving into just a mystery but it was more than a mystery, it also had quite a bit of drama and romance. I enjoyed Vigil's history of his life in the south, the very detailed writing about nature, hunting, and animals. Mr. Kirkeby was very descriptive in every part of the story. There were parts of the story that had so many details it made the story slow at times. I was surprised that there was so much information in this book. I learned a lot and it was a nice change to the stories I've been reading lately. I think about 30% of the book itself pertained to the mystery; the rest of the book was about Virgil, his relationship with Tom Jay and his romance. Virgil was a great character because he was very definitive, honest, genuine and loyal. My. Kirkeby did a great job at developing Virgil into a man.
The reason I did not give this 5 stars was because there were parts of Virgil's dialogue that wasn't consistent with his language. Virgil speaks with a very thick southern accent throughout the entire story but every now and then there were parts where he would speak words without the accent. I would always wonder if I was still reading Virgil's speech or if it was someone else's. Virgil's dialect is very distinct; as a reader I grew to know his pronounciation well in his speech. The inconsistencies of the southern dialect to "normal" full words were jarring at times. I also thought that some parts of the story needed more action/events to occur. It was nice that the story was descriptive but there needed to be more action to keep a reader yearning to read further.
Overall I would recommend this book to anyone that wants a little mystery and romance.
**If you're a reader who isn't familiar with southern accents and you pick up this story, it will be a little difficult at first to understand the southern dialect. Give it a few chapters and see if it will start making sense. I lived in South Carolina for 3 years and now I'm in Georgia so I've become accustomed to strong southern accents. I think if I didn't live in the south; this story would have been really hard for me to read and understand. I've been immersed into southern culture and experiencing it every day here in the south and I think it is tremendous that Mr. Kirkeby can write such strong southern dialect so well.
I would like to thank Mr. Kirkeby for sharing his work with me, it was a pleasure.
