    Download Epub ´ A Fine Dark Line A Fine Dark LineI read The Bottoms by Lansdale and fell in love with his writing That book was a coming of age tale also This one is set in Dewmont Texas during the late 1950's Thirteen year old Stanley Mitchell is pretty naive He reads comic books and hangs out with his dog Nub His dad gets a wild hair and buys the local drive in movie theater and the family moves into the house that comes with it Stanley and Nub are poking around in the woods near the theater and he digs up a box containing lost love letters There was a kind of smell about the place that brought to mind something primative like a prehistoric swamp conta

    Download Epub ´ A Fine Dark Line A Fine Dark LineThis Lansdale novel unlike the other Lansdale novels I’ve read is told from the point of view of a thirteen year old boy named Stanley It’s not filled with the off the rails cursing and crazy gore that I expect when reading a work from this guy but it still kept my attention Set in a small town in Texas in 1958 it makes sense that Stanley’s “voice” is still uite innocent I don’t think you could get away with that sort of innocence today what with the internet and MTV and their marathon showings of pregnant teens and spoiled skater bois and all but it works hereStanley’s parents recently purchased the local drive in and having made only one friend Stan’s a bit of a lonely kid He has an older sister but all they do is bicker One summer day he and his trusty dog Nub unearth a box filled with love letters written long ago This gets his curiosi

    Download Epub ´ A Fine Dark Line A Fine Dark LineLansdale is a great writer He's so good that he can write in his sleep which may be the problem with A Fine Dark Line Lansdale's ability in dealing with issues of race sexuality good and evil is remarkable You never feel like you're being preached to which is probably a testimony to Lansdale's good common sense However in A Fine Dark Line the ghosts invoked come from other novels Anyone who has read To Kill a Mockingbird or Tom Sawyer knows he or she has read earlier and greater efforts A violent fight at night in a storm; a town mystery or two; a boy entering into early manhood; strange lights down by the railroad tracks; a headless girl American Folklore 101 Yep Lansdale's pushing the buttons Still this book is worth a read since you uickly come attached to the Mitchel family and their friends But if you've read Lansdale's The Drive in you'll find yourself longing for the early wild man as opposed to th

    Download Epub ´ A Fine Dark Line A Fine Dark LineI very much enjoy Lansdale's writing and once again this story and the venues it takes place in all remind me of To Kill a Mockingbird It's not a rip off of it by any means just a lot of similarities A very engrossing coming of age story Loved it

    Download Epub ´ A Fine Dark Line A Fine Dark LineThis is Joe R Lansdale so of course this is a fine story dotted with colorful memorable characters This one just doesn’t have the oomph of other works by this author The mystery such as it is is solved in a rather anti climatic way and the way race is tackled in this novel is well on the nose to say the least Typically Lansdale writes of racism with special skill but it falls flat hereStill this is an enjoyable read with engaging characters and a strong sense of place Recommended
