Format: Paperback
A friend who lives in Brazil told me he liked this book very much and thought I would also like it. He was absolutely right. I loved it. This is a very special story that weaves a fascinating tale about an unexpected friendship, in a time and place most of us know very little about. Though relatively recent, taking place shortly after World War II in the American south, it's almost like reading an account of another time, in far more distant history. Much of it is told in the vernacular and really creates a small time capsule of a time and place that makes for fascinating reading. This story will surprise you and warm your heart. As you read it, you feel as though you are actually seeing the images. It totally captures your interest and the writing virtually flows. It's true southern gothic; an unusual, wonderful and well written story. Reminiscent of "To Kill a Mockingbird". An excellent read.

Format: Paperback
I found this book interesting and well-written. It deals with the significant themes of a boy's coming of age and his first major encounter with racial issues in an overwhelmingly white subculture.
Someone ought to give a copy of this book to Morgan Freeman or Samuel Jackson, because the title character would be a very attractive part for a major black actor in his maturity, and this book deserves to be on film.

Very special. I could not put this book down. I enjoyed the personal aspect, I could feel the author speaking from the heart. Ron Charles conveyed the the circumstances and feelings of of a very specific time and place. I especially enjoyed the ending. I felt I played a part in the tribute to July Culler and felt as though I had met the man myself. Well done Mr Charles.

Format: Paperback
This is a highly readable, page-turning, and profound story, written about a true story of the south. The author successfully captures the dialect and colorful language of his place of birth, in a tale of deception, morality, and celebration of the human spirit. I recommend it highly for thinking readers, and those who just enjoy a good story, well told. Joan.

Format: Paperback
Ron Charles has written a wonderful "fictional memoir" account of a boy's experiences in a small coal mining town in Virginia during the years following World War II. Through carefully recalled detail, unexpected plot turns, accurately drawn idiosyncrasies of dialogue, character, and setting, the straightforward narrative delivers an important and unique tale. Charles truly understands the skill of vivid story-telling and the importance of originality in handling a topic as sensitive, historical, and well-covered as mid-century racism in the United States. Engrossing and human in its approach, the book compares to the film, "Sling Blade," through its memorable characters and timeless morality. This is a true piece of Americana. Great reading for adolescents, old-timers, and everyone in between!

Format: Paperback
I feel July Culler is one of the best and most important books I have ever read Although the time and place are outside of the experience of most readers, the characters are so real that I shall never forget them.

The book has everything a book should have: Great characters, an interesting setting, tension, suspense,an unexpected ending, and love between two diverse characters.

I truly hope that Mr.Charles will write more "novels" in the future.

I feel this book portrays such a significant time in our history that all middle and high school students should read it. I will recommend this book to the English Department of my children's school.

Thank you,Mr. Charles for such a wonderful story.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A wonderful book seen through the eyes of a boy growing up in SW Virginia coal town, You see a boy who has not experience the outside world, but raised in a home that taught right and wrong. Being a young boy looking for a friend he found one, that will surprise you, they way they talked and shared their story with each other, their secrets, and wants and needs. Excellent writing offers adults a wonderful read, and children a real life adventure read. So few books today offer such a wide range of readers. It leaves you wanting a sequal of life after Grundy for both characters.

This book engaged me from start to finish. I could not put it down. I really just enjoyed the descriptive quality that Ron Charles gives to the main character July Culler, and also the boy in the book. The story was so vivid and real, I really felt I knew these characters.
I could also relate to the different emotions the boy was going through at his age, and all difficulties he got through. A very well written book by Ron Charles, and I would highly recommend it to children, and adults of all ages.
