Amy Sawatzky, August 28, 2012 (view all comments by Amy Sawatzky)
haven't seen the movie (either one) but picked up the book from Powell's recommended/sale table and ended up loving it. Mattie Ross is an amazing female character, especially for the time the tale was written, who reminds me of a young Katherine Hepburn. I loved the authenticity of her religious commentary such as how people struggle to believe in Election "but read James…and Acts… if it was good enough for Paul and James, it's good enough for me." I can see why this was made into a movie despite the action scenes being truly few and far between - it's much more about character development than plot points which lends to the tale's charm.

This is one of those treasured books that, after finishing the last page, you turn back to the beginning and start reading all over.
