This review is from: Secrets of an Old Typewriter: Stories from a Smart and Sassy Small Town Girl (Paperback)
This book is a true testament to what it like to live in a small town. The author starts the story a few years before when I was born, but in small towns things don't change very rapidly. Since I grew up in a small town, I can totally relate to the author's ramblings about living in the protected shell of a small town. If you have never lived in one, you might find it hard to believe that so many people would get worked up over minor things like movies, but it is soooo true.
The author attacks the description of the small town and the time line through it with gusto. At times it seems she uses entirely too many words to describe some situations. That may be the case in a larger township, but by using her wordy descriptions, she is remaining true to her roots from a small town. Everything that happens there is an adventure and worth the enthusiasm of extra wordiness to describe it.
This is a fun and wordy romp through one person's eyes of what it was like to grow up and live in a small town. It was very true to form to what I remember the way of life was like. It brought back a lot of memories for me. There were quite a few stories strung together to make up this book. It flowed nicely and was quite enjoyable. The author made good use of the assortment of old typewriters. I was gifted this book for an honest review. I thank the author for sharing it with me.
