Book Review: Felling Big Trees

Felling Big Trees


Rich Garon

 Review by David E. McClendon, Sr.

We were sent a review copy of the book Felling Big Trees by the publicist.  We were under no obligation to write a positive review.  This reviewer does not normally read fiction.  However, the book description and the cause intrigued me.

Felling Big Trees is one of those novels where you get to know the main characters and they begin to feel like part of your family.  Parts of this big redneck wanted to stand up and fight.  I had to remind myself that this was only fiction.

As a note of warning, there is one foul word in the book.  It relates to bathroom bodily functions.  There is an allusion to sexual relations in the book, but it does not go further than implying that sex may have taken place and does not describe the act.

As I read parts of this book, I was choked up.  It takes a lot to do that.  The book is very interesting and gives us a better appreciation of the type of life a congressman is faced with.

Everyone expects their congressman to be Superman and to be everywhere at one time.  They expect him to show up at all functions bright-eyed and bushy-tailed while reading every word of the legislation they are expected to vote on and understanding all of it.

I won’t go into any more detail so that I do not give any spoilers.  Suffice it to say that I was troubled by part of the book.  I was entertained. I think that you will want to add Felling Big Trees to your To Be Read list.
