review 1: Kind One by Laird Hunt is a disturbing book that eventually reveals the details behind the horrific domino-effect of abusive behaviors that scarred the life of most of these characters. The opening well scene haunts the entire book, reflecting the holes humans dig in their lives by being inhumane to others who have been inhumane to them. The plot follows a nontraditional structure, but by the end, all pieces fit together.
review 2: I loved this book right from the start...but then it just kinda rolled into some sort of sludge I could not understand...I honestly did not get the whole slavery thing until the very end...I can not give it four stars simply because it was a book about slavery...especially since I had no clue...and the ending????? I did enjoy the
... morewriting...the way it was written but I had difficulty seeing thru the sludge at times and had to go back and re-read...funny how even after re-reading I still did not see the whole slave thing...just thought the guy was abusive less
