I Also Recommend:
I really enjoyed this book. It took me three weeks to finish this book not because I could not get into it from the start of the book, it was becuase I was so busy. From the start the book set you where the characters are and you become all of them or one of them, I felt that I was Crow my-self. I love her strong will from the start of her young life and I have a friend like Icey, with a deep down jealousy, but loved the way TeeWee handle her with love like a sister. The whole story just make you laugh, cry, just have all kinds of emotions. This should be a must reader for every young person today. To let them know how this america is.Was this review helpful?

Not A Critic, Just An Avid Reader
Truely one of the best books I have ever read. I was raised in Mississippi during much of the same time period as the book. It is so on target. Wonderful characters, left me wanting more, more, more. This book would make a great movie.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

MADE FOR A MINI-SERIES
An avid reader from Hammond, LA RIGHT AS RAIN reminded me so much of ROOTS! It would make a wonderful mini-series for TV. I so loved all of the characters: I especially loved reading the scenes between Tee Wee and Icey, their hilarious competition and yet they supported each other through all of their heartbreaking tragedies. Crow and Browder¿s sexual relationship just knocked me out. Silver people, not black and white! And how I ached for J.P. I couldn¿t read fast enough to find out what was going to happen at the trial. And then there was Ruthie, struggling with an abusive husband. She was a saint! So many marvelous characters, so many wonderful stories in this one book. This was the best book I read all year. Don¿t miss it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A PERFECT MOTHER'S DAY GIFT
My daughter gave me a copy of RIGHT AS RAIN for Mother's Day, and it was one of the best gifts I've ever received. The novel brought back so many wonderful memories of my childhood. Marshall is a gifted author with the ability to paint such vivid pictures with her prose that reading a scene is like living it! The voices in the novel were so right on, black and white, adults and children, Marshall tackled them all beautifuly. I couldn't believe it when I saw on the book jacket that she's a white writer. Her understanding and sympathy for the plight of African Americans during the civil rights era showed in every line. Thank you, Bev Marshall for this wonderful gift. Can't wait for your next one.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
