Review æ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ò Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings

Young Jody adopts an orphaned fawn he calls Flag and makes it a part of his family and his best friend But life in the Florid. I absolutely hated this book I'm not even sure that hate describes how I feel This is based purely on how I felt reading it and not the writing uality though that was really rather poor as wellI suppose that most people were supposed to have this reactionand then natter on about how amazing this book is How the coming of age story is so poignant and beautiful How they wept and then fainted from the overwhelming feelings that they had for Jody And of course how they recommended this book to everyone they knewBut I hated itReally the only looks I had as I read wereMy thoughts were that it would have been a FAR better book if what I wanted to happen would have happened I wanted little Flag to show up on page 1 instead of 130 and have rabies thus infecting Jody and his parents They die and Flag dies on page 2 The end That would be a five star version of this bookIt probably didn't help that we were supposed to focus on Jody's nonexistent virtues Like responsibility and respect He didn't have either of those He slacked off never did his chores and when he did most likely under pain of death He treated his parents like crap except when he wanted something He is an immature brat And he is lauded for thatThen he view spoiler is told to kill Flag because he couldn't keep Flag from destroying the crops So Jody kills Flag and runs away from home moping and being again immature He wanders around and finally returns home after realizing that he can't survive without the resources of his parents hide spoiler

The YearlingIstence farming Jody must finally part with his dear animal friend There has been a film and even a musical based on this sto. The Yearling is a fine coming of age novel that I have somehow managed to avoid reading until know Fortunately thanks to the fine folks at the On the Southern Literary Trail Goodreads group I finally had the opportunity to read and discuss it with others who appreciate it Uninformed readers such as I will automatically assume that the yearling in uestion is the fawn prominently displayed on the cover but that is not really correct It soon becomes apparent that the fawn is but a minor character in the drama that plays out in the scrub lands of back country Florida The real yearling is Jody a young boy growing up in isolation with only his hard working parents for company Despite his father's attempts to shelter Jody from the tribulations of life in the country Jody finds that growing up is not as fun and easy as he would like Without revealing too many spoilers it is a wonderful description of the rocky road to manhood One final comment The audiorecording of this novel was magnificently narrated by Tom Stechschulte It is a great book to listen to and Tom is the perfect narrator
