The closest this book gets to touching nature is the sweet sappiness of the story. Though the author put the story forward as true, he was not actually a Native, but a racist con-man who fought to keep segregation and was a member of the KKK. But this revelation shouldn't be that surprising, since t Leggi tutto
Within the first three pages I fell in love with our four year old narrator, whose grandfather called Little Tree. His relationships with his grandparents reminded me so much of mine, it was hard not to identify with that even though his Cherokee culture was of course different. Still, the love, the Leggi tutto

Μου αρέσει να ξέρω κάτι για την ιστορία και τη ζωή του συγγραφέα που διαβάζω κάθε φορά, κάθε ξεχωριστή δημιουργία καλλιτεχνικής έμπνευσης και πάθους που μου δωρίζεται ως κομμάτι απο κάποιο θησαυρό σοφίας, πρακτικής και λογικής, ακόμα καλύτερα, ως κομμάτι απο παράδοξη εμπειρία υπαρξιακής δομής και απ Leggi tutto
This is one of my favorite books of all time. It's so much more than how you would describe it, so much more than words like story about a boy and his grandparents living in the South describe. The words have such power. They are so vivid; they recreate a world, a picture of a different time and pla Leggi tutto
Od onih sam osoba koje žele znati što manje o knjizi prije nego ju počnu čitati. Ili ne znati baš ništa, a dobiti ju kao zadatak za book klub ili jer se nekome jako svidjela ili jer je nekome bila totalna koma.

I just am flummoxed, though I shouldn't be; the levels to which people will stoop. Well, you can't deny he was a decent te Leggi tutto
I got out of college without reading a heck of a lot of classic literature, American or otherwise. Now I'm trying to make up for lost time. I picked up The Education of Little Tree because there happened to be a copy here at my sister's house. I vaguely remembered there being some controversy á la R Leggi tutto
