NOT sci-fi!

The story was ok. No sci-fi till the last page and not much point. More a short story or memoir. Sort of interesting but I wasn,t expecting a history lesson.

    This book is nothing like the description except that the locale

    This book is nothing like the description except that the locale is Florida. No sci-fi, no prehistoric creatures except in passing. That said, it is an enjoyable novella and I'm glad I read it.

    Starts off great...

    This book had fantastic potential. The descriptive language is wonderful and the character development is as well. Just when I felt the story was blossoming, though, it ends. Just like that. The ending isn't really in step with with the rest of the book, either. So while I enjoyed the book, it really could have been so much more.

    This book was not very well written. The story bounced around too much without warning. But, it did give a good rendering of what life was like in the early 40’s and 50’s. The book shows how truly horrid segregation was, a person could fight and die for this country, but couldn’t stay in a hotel, or swim in the springs. There was also a little history about Wakulla Springs that was quite interesting. The story wound around full circle – worth reading.

    Short read

    Not in the Everglades, in the panhandle of Florida, near Tallahassee. Not bad but not what I was expecting.
