I really enjoyed Eli's story. I felt out on the plains with him, because the writer's details were so minute and fascinating. But I have questions. Why is this called The Son? What am I missing here? I have another question about Eli, but I don't want to be a spoiler. The narrators are wonderful, but the writing was uneven in parts. Parts were wonderful, but other parts left me confused/wanting more.

Wonderful narrators and gorgeous prose make this epic family saga a rewarding endeavor. The beginning starts off with a powerful bang, and while it loses a bit of steam towards the end, Eli McCullough and Peter McCullough's stories are compelling standouts.

Even if you don't care for Westerns you will enjoy this family saga set in Texas during the 19th century. Narrated by different voices for the three main characters who are members of the same family, but in succeeding generations. The multiple cast elevates the individual stories to ones you will never forget!
