I wanted to see if he practiced what he preached so to speak. Well I was rewarded with a heck of a good read. I was really left wondering why I had never heard of him before. This novel is really great. For me it is the characters. Their voices are so strong and vibrant. I liked every one. And not a one of them sounds the same.
