    Where the Red Fern Grows Review

    Where the Red Fern Grows Book Review
    I don't really enjoy reading books. But Where the Red Fern Grows touched the bottom of my heart. Whenever I read the first couple of pages I didn't think the book was going to be such an adventurous story. I extremely recommend this novel to every person who enjoys reading and even to those who don't enjoy it at all.
    To begin with, this novel started off with Billy Coleman's older man life remembering his expierience with his two redbone hounds when he was a young boy. Billy got to love these two dogs old Dan and Little Ann with all his heart. To my point of view the two hounds got to love Billy also. Every where Billy went and every step he took the two mischievious dogs seemed to follow him. There was somthing curious about these dogs, toward the end of the story it seemed like they couldn't hunt, eat, or play without each other. I never understood the connection between these two dogs. What I did understand was the love and passion Billy had for his two hounds and for coon' hunting. During those exciting nights of racing through the dangerous forest trying to catch their coons' for the night all three trusted one another.
    Furthermore, this author did a wonderfull job in expressing the character's feelings. For every action that the character did it was expressed in the best way possible. This novel made me get excited and also made me infer and foreshadow of what was going to happen next or what might happen next. When it was times for Billy and his coons' to start hunting I would get as anxious as Billy and his dogs. The author had a great tone and attitude for the right parts. When the event that was occuring was exciting the author made it so exciting that I couldn't stop reading. For example when Billy and his dogs went into town to win the competition of the best coon hunting dog. When the event was sad the author would make it sad to the point where you would actually shut the book and cry. For example when neither of the dogs couldn't live without each other. In my opinion I think the author did a great job expressing himself.
    In conclusion, the author used words that were hard for me to figure out and comprehend but with the use of context clues I was able to read along. As I mentioned before Wilson Rawls did a great job in writing this novel. He also used great emotion to express events. Most of all I recommend this novel to students, teachers, parents, and whoever doesn't enjoy reading. You will enjoy the remarkable story of a young boy and his two redbone hounds.

    Biggest Piece of Poo

    Horrible. It certainly is unforgettable; you'll never forget this worthless piece of garbage that dares to call itself a movie.

    I Loved working in the film

    What a story and what a wonder person and author Wilson was. I would have liked to have worked in the second film too. Having been based on his life as a boy in hard times, the message is as important today as it was when it was written. I hold it to have be able to work in a film directed by Norman Tokar and I did it twice. Also in ''The Apple Dumpling Gang'' which he did for his home studio Disney. And James Whitmore, Beverly Garland and Jack Ging all top notch actors. This is one of the all time family films.
