The Good People


Hannah Kent


I borrowed The Good People because I thought I had read another book by this author.  However, I had confused Hannah Kent with Kristin Hannah.

Halfway through the first 30 minute (audio) track of The Good People, I began to develop an uneasy feeling that this was going to be an extremely long and boring story or that I would toss it.  Two more 30 minute tracks and I gave up.


With Irish blood coursing through my veins I was looking forward to The Good People.  However, I just could not get into this one.  Nothing about the audio version of The Good People appealed to this reader/reviewer.


As an unfinished book I can only give it one star which puts me at odds with 10,962 other Goodreads readers who have reviewed and/or rated The Good People with three or more stars.

recently visited a country cemetery…

…which was very typical of many of the

country cemeteries which I have visited,

in as much as, no matter how big the grave was

after a number of years all plots

fell into disrepair.
