Requiem for a Redneck by John P. Schulz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
"Requiem for a Redneck" follows the life of John the Plant Man for about 10 years. The book begins with the death of Harce, then the story rewinds to the circumstances where before John meets Harce.
The story presented a colorful cast of characters in the book, and as I saw these people through the eyes of John, it felt as though I knew everyone as well as the protagonist did. If John knew someone well, I felt like I knew that person just as well, likewise for acquaintances.
The author, John P. Schulz, adds a Southern tone to his writing, and I hear the accent when anyone spoke. The dialogue, the character names, even the descriptive passage transport you to the mountains in northern Georgia.
I recommend this book to anyone interested in stories about the trials and tribulations of regular people.
