A Midwest Story


Shotgun Lovesongs

By: Nickolas Butler

Genre:  Adult fiction

Pages: 320

Published: 2014

Audiobook: 8 discs (10 hours)

Read: July

4 out of 5

This book is a great story about the Midwest. It’s about friendships, relationships, families, living in a small town, and the struggles to survive. Since I happen to live in the Midwest and travel to Wisconsin often, I especially enjoyed the scenery described throughout the story. The characters were fascinated to the point I imagined living in Little Wing, being friends and going to their weddings. The audiobook version was especially intriguing because each character was narrated by a different person, so the reader really got to know that character as their own individual.  It’s just a story of small town living – nothing tragic or phenomenal occurs – however, especially Midwesterners, will become intertwined in their lives.
