Not at all what I was expecting...I knew I was wasting my time when the author referenced The Sopranos as a case in point. Turns out that the rest of what I was able to read was fantasy-based, too.
This is the only Audible book of 800+ that I was unable to finish. Sorry I wasted my time.
I stand corrected...common sense is NOT dead, as I feared. John Stossel for President! He is more cognitively analytical than both of the Presidential candidates combined.
I enjoyed this book so much, I ordered three hard copies for my audibly challenged friends. It highlights some very interesting and startling facts in a non-political, entertaining way. And it reminded me of some of the more laughable moments of family life.Thanks to Mr. Sundem for an entertaining read!
One of the tenets of successful writing is to write what you know. Having spent many years in the Ozarks myself, it's obvious that Mr. Woodrell is familiar with the clannishness, disdain for law enforcement, and raw poverty of many of its residents.
Winter's Bone was a focused unmasking of the realities meth manufacturing and of the convoluted family ties accepted as normal in the back woods of the Ozarks.
This was my first Daniel Woodrell novel. I'm anxious to see if his other works are as entertaining and informative.
