    It was amazing The style was so fluid and graceful It reminded me a lot of Toni Morison s Sula, in the way they are able to use little but still paint with huge brushstrokes, providing the entire scene with so few words Burger controls the plot so well, able to turn it with a single word it s quite shocking at times, and makes the pages flip quickly and easily It was also wonderful to read names of places around the state, names in and around Columbia, so familiar I loved hearing about the It was amazing The style was so fluid and graceful It reminded me a lot of Toni Morison s Sula, in the way they are able to use little but still paint with huge brushstrokes, providing the entire scene with so few words Burger controls the plot so well, able to turn it with a single word it s quite shocking at times, and makes the pages flip quickly and easily It was also wonderful to read names of places around the state, names in and around Columbia, so familiar I loved hearing about the school and them wanting to keep it centered on the Horseshoe, etc etc Impressive Would certainly recommend

    I have to agree with Pat Conroy that this is a humdinger of a book It reads quickly and although it is fiction, this reader believes there is a lot of truth to what happened in the 1960s with the Development of the Savannah River Plant.

    Swallow Savannah was based on my home and I actually enjoyed see it fictionalized as Groton Throw in a few murders, some family disfunction, and three or four dishonest state officials and you have a good story.
