review 1: This book was written by a neighbor of mine, and takes place in Atlanta so many of the venues and even characters were familiar. There is a really good story buried somewhere in this book. It could have been about half the length it was. There were so many sub plots going on, an avenging angel, a prostitute, Russian mafia? Really? The history of Forsyth County is tragic and compelling and needs to be told. Unfortunately this was not the book to do it.
review 2: This book centers around the racial history of Forsyth County GA, where I have lived for 10 years. A friend recommended it so I bought it mainly due to the historical aspect of the book. Honestly I had no idea the main plot line. It was very interesting to read about some of the horrific things t
... morehat happened here in the early 1900's but none of that was surprising. What was surprising, however, was the strange storyline that actually really sucks you in. I like it when I am consistently wrong about where a story is going and I certainly was with Brambleman. The beginning of the book was described in one review as being reminiscent of "it's a Wonderful Life"., although I felt that in this book Charlie seemed to be constantly shown that his life did suck, just when you thought it couldn't get much worse it would. I can't help but describe the book as "touched by an Angel" meets Freddie Kruger. I will admit for quite a bit of the book I really wished that aspect had been left out, it seemed too hokey, but later it really gave purpose to the story. There are always reviews that tell you the basic plot lines, but there is no way to explain much of this plot line without spoiling the book. I feel the basic book description does thatnpart. I definitely enjoyed it. Would give it 4.5 stars if I could less
