Cooked Letter, Crooked Letter

I just finished this book and really enjoyed it. It started off a little slow, and the author spent quite a bit of time setting the stage for the climax of the story. It takes place in a small Mississippi town and is centered around the lives of two boys, one African American and one white. I have never read anything by Tom Franklin before, but I think I will check out some of the other books he has written. He has a nice writing style. I have started Edgar Sawtelle, but I am not sure if I will finish it. It was an Oprah selection several years ago, but I have had several people tell me that they didn't' like it. I can get discouraged easily when it comes to books and movies. I let others opinions sway me sometimes. I will update you on my progress in that book.

  1. I'm still trying to get The Confession read! Some days there just aren't enough hours.
    I want to read Winter Bones before watching the movie.
