This is a must read for someone who is looking for great writing. Brian has a gift for introducing poetic nuances to his descriptive nature, tying in philosophical ideals to what the future could hold to a group of River Rat teens in the 1970's.
Another reason why I enjoyed reading this book personally is because of the Mississippi river valley landmarks that are familiar to me. I.e., the Pickle factory, Twin bluffs, ect.
