Karl G. Trautman- Deacon Blues
Genre: Political/Coming of Age
A Grand Read
What a grand story in Deacon Blues by Karl G. Trautman. Everyone who has ever been a teenager, knows the tragedy and angst that one feels, especially when they think the world is against them, and they want to be like everyone else. While trying to fit in, it's also about being an individual. Manfred is no different, yet he is trying to form his own identity. An interesting twist, and I don't see many teenagers doing it, is that he looks to his President, Jimmy Carter, as his role model. It's being a teen in the 70s and dealing with the post-watergate and Ford presidencies. Manfred is on a journey, to find himself, and gain some influence. The reliance on Carter's success and failures make a big impact on Manfred. This is the first book that I've read of this authors, and I look forward to more stories about Manfred, and from this author in general. This read is more than just words on a page. Definitely an unpredictable story, my favorite kind! Deacon Blues is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews. I read this book to give my unbiased and honest review. Amy's Bookshelf Reviews recommends that anyone who reads this book, to also write a review.
