it was amazing
bookshelves: humour, historical-fiction, five-star, my-son-read-it-too
Read from July 04 to August 01, 2010

Funny, probably far from the truth, but in many ways more believable. It is good to think that Joshua had a life other than only what is traditonally portrayed. Biff is still the hero of the story.

I ask him if he finds it funny ... oh yeah he says in a casual way, I think it is the generation gap and the fact that is knowledge of the bible is limited, not saying that I have much more knowledge, just had more time picking up knowledge on the way."
