[Novel] Tobacco Road (Erskine Caldwell)

Tobacco Road

Book

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.

Positive:
Negative:
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
