    I think I understand what you (@thistle912) mean about the grammar; it's not the way my friends and I talk and it's difficult for me to read. "Yes" people really did talk that way & recently. As a "kid" of the 1970s, I remember "Andy Griffith" spoke similarly to that on TV. Where I live in central CA, there's been a trend in education to recognize that "standard" English is important, but it's not the only legitimate dialect. I tried to read the Yearling a few times and just recently decided to "read" the audio book to get more used to the accent and to think about whether or not the story is appropriate for my young nephew. My nephew's family and I don't eat meat, but the idea of "kill or go hungry" is an important part of our history.

    I just re-read the Deathly Hallows & it's still one of my favorites, with Prizoner of Azkaban. Most people don't know that J.K. Rowling studied politics and was inspired by the academic work of Jessica Mitford

    I love the way the story slowly reveals who Sirius Black actually is and why he was imprisoned. Complex characters are so interesting and it's so important that every criminal has a story!
