A true roller coaster of emotions. loved it from start to finish, and will certainly always have a place in my heart as one of the greatest books of all time.
to me the memories of being a child experiencing this book for the first time. Shared the memory with my own son of the joys of the Ozarks as we retraced the steps of Billy, Ole Dan and Little Ann and re-learn the lessons of loyalty, determination and just how much God loves His creations.
"a childhood favourite"
the story has aged well! hearing it again, now as an adult, brings a whole new poignancy and understanding. the performance is top notch - read in what sounds like an authentic accent and he feels what he reads. highly recommended
