This book had been on my radar for a while. I mean, it had been on the best seller list for, like, ever. They made a movie out of it and it’s already out of theaters. (That’s how slow I am to get around to books sometimes… it’s pretty bad.)
I wouldn’t necessarily say I had been waiting for the opportune time to read this book, but if I had it would have been totally worth the wait. This novel was awesome! It was one of my absolute favorite books I’ve read this year. It’s funny, endearing, and has you rooting for all the right people. That’s not to say the line of, ahem, good and evil are so clear. The story does a great job of showing both the good and bad sides of many of the characters in the book. You might met a lady who is terribly racists, but is a really great mother. And I think that’s one of the things that makes this book so compelling and realistic.
The only draw back is you might find yourself talking in a deep southern accent while your reading this book.
Did I say draw back, I meant bonus. Total bonus.
What about you-do you have any good book recommendations for me? I’d love to hear them.
