Most of John Grisham is books have something to do with the law or lawyers or court this book deviated from his normal books as far as possible but is none the less and great tale about a rural Arkansas family cotton pickers Anna tell the tale their struggles and small families desperate wish to escape the monotonous life of a debt in farming job I'm sorry if this description doesn't captive au but I promise if you like John Grisham then you will like this book too most likely
That is was audible and I could listen in my car and at home.
Absolutely fantastic - made me feel if I was there
Better storyline and ending.
Definitely. His legal novels are top notch. A Painted House was flat.
Gives a great view of the old cotton fields with a compelling story line
Well written and excellent use of a unique setting. I really enjoyed it.
Engaging, entertaining, captivating
Several of the unexpected things that Luke witnessed.
First. I really enjoyed his cadence and emphasis
Sort of. But I love looking forward to the next time I get to listen and I was disappointed when it was over.
I enjoyed the simple look into a simple life in a simple time. The types of problems encountered 60 years ago were not that different from the problems we have today: bullying, class, race, weather, family tensions, etc.
the sneaky escapades of Luke and his friends.
I enjoyed his slow pacing; it fit perfectly with the book. His dialogue was just OK.
Luke. he grew up in some ways but maintained his innocence. He was scared, kept secrets, and tried in his own way to find his place in his family.
No. While it was a riveting story, the annoyance of the way the reader did certain voices, and mispronounced an important name was ...well, too annoying.
it is a certain type of narration: through the eyes of a child and how he regards and relates to the world around him, but I can't remember titles at the moment.
Stan MUSIAL. That's (/ˈmjuːziəl/ or /ˈmjuːʒəl/; born Stanisław Franciszek Musiał; November 21, 1920 – January 19, 2013)
NOT MusUal as the reader insisted on saying. Tthe "Musial" issue became close to unbearable.
The reader did the overall story reasonably well, but the voices of some of the characters (from Pappy, to Luke's father) were notably unfeeling.
And he didn't seem to "get" the self-deprecating humor that Luke often spoke with.
This was an easy listen. Very enjoyable with enough little suspensful situations to keep you wanting to hear more. David Lansbury did an excellent job telling the story. I highly recommend this book.
