Down River: A new Southern voice

The friend who recommended John Hart's "Down River" said he reminded her of Pat Conroy. While Hart delivers a nice gothic murder mystery, complete with a complicated family history we've come to expect from Southern novelists, Hart's efforts don't measure up to Conroy's superior storytelling skills. I've think I've read everything Conroy has written (save the cookbook he did a while back), and I can say with some authority that John Hart is no Pat Conroy. That doesn' mean "Down River" is not a good book. I liked Hart's characters and family connections, but he has a way to go before he can stand with Conroy as a great writer.

The Latest Hollywood Rundown



1) Heidi Montag’s mom gives her daughters marriage to Spencer Pratt “six months”. Six months?? I was thinking 3 months tops. The couple blew off Thanksgiving to go elope. I’m thinking this is more of a publicity stunt than anything. Her reunion with Lauren Conrad is a thing of the past and so she had to move onto something else to draw attention to herself. Who cares if they got married and what their plans for the future are.
