Set in a small town in the American South, it is the story of a group of people who have little in common except that they are all hopelessly lonely. A young girl, a drunken socialist and a black doctor are drawn to a gentle, sympathetic deaf mute, whose presence changes their lives. This powerful exploration of alienation is both moving and perceptive.Hide synopsis
Definitely character driven. I'm just not a fan of Oprah's choices. SOOO depressing. I'm having a hard time rating this one. I did not particularly care for the story yet the author did a great job of portraying isolation and loneliness. Hence, a wishy washy three star review.
Great intelligent and moving novel. Highly recommended. The presence of music, the social problems within South communities, but above all the loneliness of the lovers, are extremely interesting if seen through McCullers' lens. Provocative novel.
