I really enjoyed this 414 page nook book. It was reviewed to be something similar to Mark Twain's writtings on the book cover. I disagree with this as I could not see the similarities other then the two boys growing up in a small town near the banks of a river. There were some missing words, wrong words used, mispelled words and for me, worst of all, tenses were mixed in the same sentences. Past, present and future in a run on sentence make me grind my teeth in frustration. Even at that this is one of the better free books I have read. I promptly bought the second book in this series. I wish there was a third! I also bought a third book titled Tic Tac Toe, which I have not read yet. The second book was almost as good as the first, it was heavier on the dialog and had the same grammatical mistakes. I am archiving both. I recommend both these books for young people ages 12 and up, especially males, and adults. I stress males because for an obscure reason, it reminded a bit of an edgier Hardy Boys or a younger Indiana Jones, if he had had a brother and lived in the ozarks. This book and its sequal were really good. Five stars if the editing had been better.

    good read

    I liked this book, read it in one evening. Don't see the "Mark Twain Style" really. I'd say teens would like this book...people in the Ozarks would also like it.

    Twain/ King

    I'll admit I read Stephen King more often than Mark Twain. This reminded me more of King's short story of two boys looking for a dead body minus the leeches. I think it is called Stand by Me. I wish the glowing man had been explained.

    Great Story!

    Suspenseful all the way through. You never knew for sure what the outcome is going to be. A lot of interesting twists to the plot. Fun to see how two sybling brothers who fought a lot become best buddies as they experience life together. Highly recommended!

    Great setting

    I wanted to read this because my family is from the Ozarks. I really enjoyed the book, but felt yhe last few chapters were a bit rushed. Also I was a bit disappointed that my 'whodoneit' wasn't answered. I am hoping the next book will have the answers I desperately need now!
