I am not one to go for hype. But I reserved "Wettest County in the World" by Matt Bondurant. It is the book that the movie "Lawless" is made from. I am a history buff and decided to read the book.
The day that I got this book, I started to read it. Some hours later, I had finished it. I could not put it down. I just had to know what happened next. It was very violent and really nasty at some points. I am very glad I decided to read the book and not watch the movie. Paybacks are very nasty.
I tried to keep the time frame in mind. It was a violent time. Money, men, and booze is a really bad mix. On the other hand, what was someone to do at that time? It was the depression and people had families. So I will not judge this.
The only thing I didn't like about the book was in parts, it jumps from one time frame to another. I thought it was a bit distracting. I don't like time jumping in books.
If you have read it, let me know your thoughts.
Have a wonderful day.
