All the Earth, Thrown to the Sky, by Joe R. Lansdale

Title:  All the Earth, Thrown to the Sky
Author: Joe Lansdale
A gift from Mom
Started:  10/1/2013
Finished: 10/4/2013

My mom and sister came to visit me about a month ago. As they were leaving my sister was looking for a book to read and I game her Lansdale's "The Bottoms."  

My sister passed the book to my mom when finished, and my mom seemed to really enjoy it. So much so she picked up several other books by Lansdale, including then one I'm writing about today. 

Atettts is similar to The Bottoms. A coming of age story with lots of hardship, love, good and bad people, and action (and a hell of a lot of coincidences). It's a young persons book, but charming and enjoyable for all readers. Not as polished as The Bottoms, atettts was still an enjoyable read.
