William H. Armstrong's Newbery Award-winning novel quickly became a classic as a moving portrayal of resilience and hope in the face of profound human tragedy. Decades later, the bittersweet story still rings true, as strong-spirited individuals continue to battle the evil of prejudice. (Ages 9 to 12) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Sounder is a quick read that probably could be done in a day’s time or less. Within Armstrong’s novel are themes such as poverty, discrimination and perseverance against life’s struggles. A key point in the story comes when the father of the family, in order to provide for his family, makes a bold decision that ultimately changes the course of the family’s fortunes.
Some critics have noted the lack of names among all of the characters within the novel, and finding exception to it. But, to me, this was neither a distraction nor it detracted or took away from the overall impact of the book.
Also within the plot is definitely a sense of loss of innocence. The young boy, through the many setbacks he experiences, must endure and try to come to some understanding about the world. His mother tries to help him understand the nature of life and its eventual obstacles through her faith and her life experience.
Sounder is definitely a bittersweet experience that stays with the reader.
With masterful writing, he tells the story of a poor family as they face injustice and struggle to survive and to overcome.
I recommend this novel to thoughtful, discerning readers of all ages.
