Deacon King Kong Fail
Reviewed in Australia on 23 August 2020
We are reading this book for our book club everyone agreed since it was recommended buy the Times and Oprah it was worth a read. I have had this book for over a month now and am struggling to get through it. The story started off well with the Deacon involved in a shooting but after half a dozen pages for me that was it. Nicknames for all the characters is confusing and the story line just jumps all over the place. I just wish they would get on with it.
I have struggled to get to nearly halfway through it but doubt I will finish it.
