A comedy, a tragedy. Threadgill Pickett, veteran of the Civil War, breaks out from an Alabama old folks home and starts a quest northward to kill the last living Union Soldier. This is to avenge his brother, who was needlessly killed by Union soldiers, outside of any conflict. On his journey Threadgill encounters two brothers building a time machine, a trio of Klu Kluxers, a man collecting raccoons that turn out to be rabid, a wannabe country singer, and a truck-driving woman to make men stand in awe. He also encounters a Utopian society of blacks and whites who share family, food, love, and grief.

The storyline never went where I expected it to, but always went somewhere interesting, and had me confused and amused at the same time. The narration was really well done and brought be back down South for a while.
Yes. It can be difficult sometimes to read any book and picture how each character would sound like, but Jeremy Arthur's performance really brought the characters to life. It was a well written, narrated and surprisingly humorous story.
Pickett's Charge is one of my favorite audiobooks because of how humorous the premise is.
Ravenclaw. I like books that break my heart.
Threadgill Pickett, of course.
I just loved how authentic his accents sounded. His voice was so great for this book.
This story made me laugh out loud so often. The characters were really out-there, but they were very real, too. This book is so smart and funny and wonderfully written. I can't wait to listen to more from Charles McNair.
