Bloodroot - Amy Greene Can someone explain how twins that grew up together for 10 or so years - obviously learning the speak together - somehow managed to talk so drastically different? The one who went to school says things like "knowed" and "I seen," but the one with very little education seems to talk completely normal, save the occasional "reckon." OMG.

Update: Even though I was irritated with a large chunk of the book, in retrospect, it wasn't that bad. I liked the story and the characters, just not the way they spoke.

Once I finished, the story didn't stay with me. I was able to pick up another book within 10 minutes of completing Bloodroot. To me, that pretty much says it all.
