Disobedience is about a year in the life of 17 year old Henry Shaw He is dealing with the discovery of his mother s secret affair his sister s obsession with Civil War re enactments plus a crush on a girl in another city Once I started listening to it I realized it was a 5 12 hour abridged audiobook I liked the narrator and was curious what an abridged experience would be like so decided to continue Apparently there is no unabridged audio of this book Jane Hamilton is a fine writer and I found the novel uite engaging but have no idea how to rate it It did seem truncated Why would you abridge a 273 page novel They must have cut it down by about 4 hours but why I have the printed version here but probably won t investigate further because I feel satiated enough with my edited experience of the novel

I have enjoyed some Jane Hamilton books than others This one was very good Her prose is beautiful and her subject matter interesting I liked the uirkiness of the characters Civil War reenactments musicians that play music most people have never heard Their interests sometimes obsessions with the past sometimes made me forget that the setting was modern day until it started talking about e mail again I particularly liked that she chose to tell the story that is largely about a woman s adultery from the point of view of her son This perspective was fascinating especially because he can not identify with her as an adult or as a woman which makes her actions so mysterious to him I would definitely recommend this novel
