I had a hard time getting past the language. Written in the vernacular, it was hard for this English-speaker to read for a while. Once I got past that, the book went quickly and I really enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to seeing how they treated it in the movie. Sometimes movies are not kind to the written version. I'd recommend this book to anyone who was looking for a glimpse of life in the South in the mid-60's.
