Journal Entry 1 by musume from Hamburg - Bahrenfeld, Hamburg Germany on Monday, August 31, 2009

After a long break got back to my favorite 2nd-hand books' source. This one looked very promising and has not disappointed me with a narration of very different rhythms and paces.

The story launches itself in a Texas' town full of good ole boys that is going through an aftermaths of the school massacre. Despite rather tragic topic, the author has this sarcastic touch to the story:

'Vernon, are you all right?"
'I guess so,' I say. That's what you say around here if you mean 'No'.
'Well, if you are sure-I only want you to be happy.' That's what you say around here if you mean 'Tough shit'.
At some point the story even reminded me of Extremely Loud, Incredibly Close by Foer with similar pattern of a young soul learning to cope with death and life after it.
