A Majority of One is a compelling, thought-provoking novel with a couple plot twists I definitely didn’t see coming. It reminded me of one of my favorite novels, Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird. I highly recommend it.
Being a woman of true faith, and not man-made religion, I didn't find the main character or main subject of the book at all distasteful. I was originally raised Southern Baptist and can relate to how hateful and intolerant this group can be...and many denominations like them.
Bob Lamb boldly faces religious intolerance head on and sprinkles it with provoking thought!
When a sophisticated high school teacher, Anne Brady, decides to continue with her planned curriculum and assign Huckleberry Finn, an American classic, to her pupils in a small southern high school, I was reminded of Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mocking Bird.
Despite threats from angry church- going parents, from the head master and from the school board, Anne is committed to standing on principle. This leads to a very curious court case. After the local solicitor tackles the witnesses, it is obvious that the opposition have based their dissent on hearsay rather than facts, revealing the ignorance of the school board members and enraging the local residents.
Mr. Lamb astutely develops his cast of characters who reside in this small town. He keeps the reader turning the pages as he illustrates how unyielding religious bigots can overturn an entire community.
I loved this book and was more than delighted with the unexpected turn of events in the last chapter as poetic justice was played out.
A Majority of One is an age topic told in current day environment. It got my attention from the first page throughout. I read a lot and haven't found that many other tomes--especially modern ones--that kept my attention throughout and avoiding the usual lull in plot at around the 75% mark. Great read.
And, by the way....I'm from the South and proud of it.
