Book Review: The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg

The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. FiggThe Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg by Rodman Philbrick
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Surprised by the darkness of this book with the flippant title and the happy-go-lucky cover illustration.  People in Homer's world are mean.  If they are not mean, they are nice but with ulterior motives.  Then Homer gets to the war and, among other things, describes the sound a saw makes when it cuts a man's leg off.

Putting this one on the shelf for a while.  My kid might be ready for it when he's 11 or 12.
