The book is enlightening about what life was like in the South of the United States in the 1930メs. It gives very descriptive details, but that is not necessarily a good thing. These details drag the book out and I agree with other reviews that have said, モThe Road to Memphis took one week for me to read but the contents of the story only held my interest at the times that I felt compelled to concentrate.ヤ This is very true since it took me a long time to read the book, because quite frankly some of the parts of the book were just plain boring and excessive. I thought that the other two books in the series are more interesting. They get to the point of the book much quicker than The Road to Memphis does; in fact, it takes The Road to Memphis 120 pages to get to the climax of the book. It could have been that I was just tired of same characters in the book and that I like single books better than series. I would have liked it more if some of the unneeded parts were taken out.
