I listened to this in my car and loved every minute of the story. There is a little of everything in this book. There are moments that make you laugh and ones that make you cry. I laughed through most of this book but there were also many moments where the deeper meanings of love and loss and learning all come to the surface. This is a wonderful coming of age story where you can see as Holling Hoodhood starts off as a boy and grows into a man. I loved the use of Shakespeare in this story and I hope that it shows the people who read it that Shakespeare isn't scary and that there is something to be found in his plays for everyone. I also loved how this story highlights the role of teachers. Throughout ones schooling there are always one or two teachers that always stay with your for one reason or another. The character of Mrs Baker embodies all those great teachers that I once had. This is a wonderful story and I highly recommend it to all.
