    $14.95 True Grit (Media Tie In, Reprint) (Paperback) Charles Portis has long been acclaimed as one of America's foremost comic writers. True Grit is his most famous novel--first published in 1968, and the basis for the movie of the same name starring John Wayne. It tells the story of Mattie Ross, who is just fourteen years of age when a coward going by the name of Tom Chaney shoots her father down in Fort Smith, Arkansas, and robs him of his life, his horse, and 150 in cash money.

    One of the goals of our book club is to read books we wouldn't ordinarily choose for ourselves. True Grit fit this category for me. I had vague memories of the John Wayne movie from back when I was young, and I am not a fan of westerns in general. This book was a pleasant surprise for me. The characters grabbed my attention right from the start. I also enjoyed the historically accurate vocabulary, which caused me to look up more than a few words as I read through.

I'm not against Kindles at all, but I suspect I'll always prefer paper books. Holding them, flipping the pages, smelling them, feeling the paper, everything.

Very true. I love having a shelf of people to choose from each night.

It's amazing, really, when you feel depressed and open a book, how the other world takes out your sorrows.

I should just start handing these out to people when meeting them for the first time, so they can be prepared.

Like sister like sister. Another good one. Very different from "Jane Eyre" but very good.

One of my favorites, too. I read it as a very young girl and have read it twice more since then.

Great story. Weird at times and definitely NOT a handbook on heaven. Great character development though.
