I really didn't like this book very much The writing was adequate, and the premise sounded interesting, but the actual reading was rather tedious. If it wasn't for book group, I may have set it aside, but I plowed through. I felt that some of the dialogue was unbelievable, and at least one time, I wasn't sure who was saying what. Ralph, the main character, was preoccupied with sex, since he had been denied it for so long, and it became tiresome. The author did paint a vivid picture of the hard life these people led in the early 1900s in Wisconsin, but for me it wasn't enough.

Got this from Kiptrix. It was a pretty gritty read and as she noted, sex was a continuous theme in the book, like everyone was driven by it and obsessed with it. Hoping someone else enjoys this a little more.

Received from brownwhitetan. Thank you. I started reading this a few years ago and couldn't finish it. I agree with kiptrix that it wasn't very good.
