The Little Reading Nook

Silver Sparrow - Tayari Jones I loved Silver Sparrow. I ended up reading the first 3/4 of the book in one sitting and finished the last 1/4 the next morning.

It was a quick read filled with all the elements that to make up a good story. Engaging writing, good characters, and an interesting storyline. Two of the things that I enjoyed most in Silver Sparrow was the characters. All the characters were well thought out and detailed The other thing that I lived was the writing. I found myself highlighting sentences and passages. Which is always a good sign.

Someone said this book is "real". It is was like reading someones real story, with real people, in a real situation.
