baronessekat: (book)
True GritTrue Grit by Charles Portis

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This was a surprisingly enjoyable, though a bit predictable book. I had never seen the movies that were based on this book so I had no preconceived ideas about how it should be.

I do admit that I found the main character of Maddie a bit annoying and I really could not understand how Rooster and Lebouef would let her seemingly run roughshod over them and dictate the actions of a US Marshall and Texas Ranger.

I do believe though that had this book been written and published today, it would classified more of a YA book instead of regular fiction. And with that thinking I thought it worked just fine.

I'm a grown up. Of course I owe money. Utility bills, credit card bill, car payment and it's now the beginning of January - property taxes.

I do not believe anyone owes me money. I think I'd remember if they did.
