Book review


From a writer’s standpoint and a lover of English lit, this was an amazing book. The author’s description of people and places was brilliant and as I was reading it, I could imagine what she was describing. A lot of people I know have already read this novel in school or some other time in their life. With this being my first time reading it, I feel like I can appreciate it that much more from an author’s standpoint and a reader. The plot was definitely well thought out and takes place in Nebraska. It follows life through Jim Burden’s eyes and captures how life was back then…in the country and what poor family’s had to go through in farming and doing whatever they had to do to survive. Jim lost a lot but he also got to get out and experience life whilst never losing his love for Antonia and the time he spent with her as a child. This was a great read, my only wish is that I wanted more from them, but at the same time his love for her was innocent and I think thats what made it beautiful.
