Book Review Of the Day – Mudbound

You can help. Send your book review to [email protected] and we will put it up when it is your turn.

The Whaleoil Book Club is a compilation of recommended books from readers

This holiday season we are going to review approximately one book per day so that it gives people a chance to do their own research on the books and authors by using the links provided and not miss out by being bombarded by a whole lot at once.

The purpose is to share with others sources of information and/or entertainment to aid with relaxing as people take some time off work.

Each post is set out with the name of who submitted it, the name of the book and author and a short review in the form of a comment from whoever submitted it.

Todays review came from Jude


Mudbound

By Hillary Jordon .

Jude said: “Set in Mississippi 1946, the story is narrated by the main characters from two families. The first family is a white cotton farmer who have a family member return from fighting as a bomber pilot in the war. The second family are black sharecroppers on the same farm. They too have a family member return from the war. The story unfolds and is so good, it is a book that is hard to put down.
Highly recommend to all WO readers!”

Amazon said: “The men and women of each family relate their versions of events and we are drawn into their lives as they become players in a tragedy on the grandest scale.”
