    Great Southern Book

    This is the best book I have ever had to read for a college course. I stayed up after a long day and read the whole thing. Brown has a great writing style and it keeps you on the edge of your seat. It is not predictable and you will want to know what is going to happen next. This book is going to be part of my permanent library and I will be reading it again and again. This book is a great escape from the outside world. I highly recommend this book.

    Don't miss

    If you are a fan of southern fiction a like to read realistic fiction you don't want to miss this one. Very realistic story about the darker side of life. I rooted for Joe and Gary all the way thru and found myself hating Wade.

    Finding Redemption in the Deep South

    Joe features one of the most believably evil characters in all of contemporary fiction, the father of a poor white trash family in Mississippi. They are homeless migrant workers and the father, an alcoholic, sells his infant son to a rich family. The main story is about the older son who befriends Joe, a middle age guy living out in the woods who needs to save a life for his own personal redemption. Larry Brown died too young. Here he is at the height of his powers. Please visit: timothyherrick.blogspot.com

    Tiffany

    I hold up a finger and I reach into my sachel again and pull out a rounded cap. I place it on the dagger and stab the wall. Ice slowly starts spreading outwards. "Everything it hits freezes. A kid from Athena helped me build it." I go back to camp.
