Good Book, Horrible Narration

Silas House is a great author. The plot of this novel was straightforward, and the characters well developed.

But the narration of this book was as bad as it gets. Mr Stechschulte read with a northern accent, but broke into a fake southern accent for all dialogue. Unfortunately, he voiced every single character as though he was doing slapstick. Every single person in House's book sounded like a character in a bad comedy routine.

Worst. Narration. Ever.

Love this book

I first read this book many years ago and as I am a ky girl myself it really resonated with me. I love this book and the way it’s read a loud here on audible. The people in the story could be people I know or am related to and they way the narrator speaks brought me back to my grandmothers kitchen when I was a child. Thank you Silas house for capturing the very essence of what it means to be mountain people!

A joy to listen to

Everything about this book and listening experience is wonderful. I’ve just discovered Silas House and the audible versions are exceptional. The narrator has just the right Kentucky tone. The story is beautiful and the characters are well developed. I’d recommend reading Parchment of Leaves first, then Coal Tatoo and then Clay’s Quilt.

A great trip to the mountains.

Such a good story. I'm a West Virginia girl, but this still felt like home.
