He writes in a very conversational tone, and in fact I would like to hear him read this book.
I picked this up because I had a long commute and it was about the only thing that looked interesting in the library's collection of audio books on CD.
It recites facts from the author's boyhood, pleasant and otherwise, without much subjective sense of what it was like to have lived though them.
Great book, lots of history and easy reading. Hope to have him autograph it in Pickstown in June, I can't wait.Published 4 months ago by cheryll jacobson
