Inhaltsangabe

A young woman recently relocated to a tiny Vermont logging town, Lillian is menaced by a mysterious stalker named Blackway. This one man - who kills her cat, forces her boyfriend to flee the state in terror, and silently threatens her very existence - is a force little understood by the local figures to whom she turns for help. Yet, in this spare and powerful tale, Lillian enlists the powerful brute Nate and the curmudgeonly Lester to take the fight to her tormenter as a raggedy quartet of town elders ponders her likely fate.

With simple strength and extraordinary force, Go With Me is a riveting modern fable of good provoked to resist evil.

Kritikerstimmen

"A gripping, taut tale of suspense.... a spare, tense novel set within the desolation and desperation of the Vermont woods.... That things will eventually turn violent is a given. Even before a punch is thrown or a shot is fired, the dread is as thick as maple syrup. Freeman, a perceptive, enticing writer, isn't bloodthirsty. When violence erupts, it's sharp and succinct. Still, this isn't some heady novel about violence or its various consequences. It's about an America - insular and self-defined - that exists beyond the media's gaze. These are hard people, but they're also infused with humor, humanity, and a sense of right and wrong.... Go With Me is a gem that sparkles with sly insight and cuts like a knife." ( The Boston Globe)
"Like its young heroine, Lillian, Freeman's trim powerhouse is a pistol.... Freeman's beautifully cadenced dialogue is rich with humor, philosophic depth and a near-mythic sensibility." ( Publishers Weekly)

Great story

The reader did a good job with all the voices and made a fair attempt at trying to differentiate them. The story was also very interesting even though it got a bit preachy in parts.

The good ol' boys

First off: The voices of the various characters were a great help - this book is easier to listen to than to read. That being said, it's hard to say of the story is meant to amuse or provoke. In any case, it raises serious moral questions, then lets them lie. Too thin for my taste.

wonderful narration

sorry it ended so soon. A novella set in modern-day rural New England that weaves in allusions to politics, popular culture, generation conflict, the cutting edge between the bigger world and small town life. A philosophical low-key thriller you want to finisj at one sitting.
