This book is a scattered bunch of bits of stories of people's mostly empty lives. Written from several viewpoints that don't always make sense (sometimes unknown narrator, sometimes first person and known narrator), it jumps from one bit of a person's life to another, with very little about each one.

I kept reading it because I hoped to learn something about North Dakota, and I did, a little, but not much; and I kept hoping it would get more interesting and complete, but it didn't.

It is sort of like a photo album with a few notes under the photos, but no real story, other than that most of the characters continue to make bad choices, even when they know they are doing it.

There is a lot of anger, fear, disgust, loss, fatigue, cold, resentment, and very little love, comfort, humor, support, warmth, or respect; just another story about mostly meaningless lives with very little resolution and no noticeably wise people.

Disappointing, and makes me very glad to not live in that kind of community.

The characters of this novel pull the reader in like no other -- and it fits perfectly within the entire _Love Medicine_ series. Look on to _Tales of Burning Love_ for more on these characters.
