[Novel] Tobacco Road (Erskine Caldwell)

Tobacco Road


An interesting look at the culture of poor farmers in early 20th century rural America.

It really hit me how culture has such a profound effect on our lives that I sometimes find more things in common with fictional space aliens than characters based on real people.

You can grab the audiobook or kindle on amazon.

Relatively interesting characters
Doesn’t really offer anything mind-blowing or out of the ordinary
Enlightening on poor farmer culture in 20th century America
Can be a bit dull at times if you have a hard time relating to characters
Thought-provoking on human nature and the effect upbringing has on it
