Review from
The character development in this novel is amazing and one of the elements I appreciate the most. It was a unique experience for me to have so much distaste for a character, but I think this is what made the story even more intriguing. Hiram is proven to be callous, rude, and selfish on a multitude of occasions. The interest comes from being able to get insight into the life of a person you would hope to never meet. As his character continues to develop, it’s interesting to reflect on how your perspective and judgement of McDowell changes. The author is able to capture who Hiram is by simultaneously focusing on the growth of the people closest to him. The attention to detail for all the characters is what hooks you to keep reading. Coles attention to detail expands to all elements of the book. The settings and events in this book are vividly described, making them feel real.
