About the Book:
Bursting with odd-balls, language, and place, FULL BEAVER MOON is a tale of kinship, compassion, and faith.
This novel got off to a really hard start for me. I did not understand what was going on at all. Early on in the book, when in dialogue with a woman, the main character admits he didn't understand most of what she was saying. (136/3668) I know exactly how he felt because I didn't understand it either. About a quarter of the way into the book, we finally receive enough the backstory to make sense of what was going on. I do wish that backstory had been given to us earlier.
This novel was one I did not finish. That is something rare for me. I realized I was not enjoying the book and was frequently lost. I found it was still confusing to me about half way through so finally stopped reading.
My rating: 3/5 stars.
