Book learning #67 True Grit by Charles Portis

Comes a point when a man, all done with his daily business will look at a book for escape. Such is the way when I turn to reading a novel. I do so about once a year and moreoften than not, I find the experience deeply satisfying.

I found the language in this novel absolutely wonderful, I was entranced by the dialect and the turn of phrase. Why the hell don't we all talk like that anymore? I loved every minute of it. It also helped that it was a pretty good page turner and, well, just something i was determined to enjoy.
