Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid by Bill Bryson

Bryson takes us back to the 1950’s and 1960’s growing up in Des Moines.   It’s not the funniest Bryson, but the stories of coming of age and all the rascals involved are heartwarming.    His family and community were loving and forgiving.   Bittersweet reminiscenses of the mid-west culture involving what was and what will never be anymore are included.

RATING: * * * A good read
