First order of business,
girls, check this out.
Next, rain, rain and more rain.
The Canadiens WON yeh.
I finished A Death In The Family.
I have rarely read a novel of such emotion.
The emotion never lets up.
This book shows the impact of a senseless death, on a family.
Not sentimental, no bullshit whatsoever.
It is a work of powerful social messages,
without ever being preachy.
The work is also very political, in a subtle kind of way.
Agee was a man of Faith but, there is criticism of the Catholic church.
The characters are the types,
that will stay with me for a long time.
This novel shows grief as it is,
a numbing, infuriating,
leave you clueless,
I understand why this novel was picked as one of the 100 best American novels.
I have never read anything like it before,
and I doubt I ever will again.
Disturbing and great.
People much smarter than I can analyse.
I just wanted to give you my impressions.
Any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankind; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.
