I have never been asked to review a book before it went to print. After reading this you will probably get a good sense of why that is. You would expect that someone asked to provide feedback on a book would have some foundational understanding of literature, a good grasp of concept and most importantly something of value to add in a critique.

That being said, I have done a fair share of reading and enjoy books of a lot of genres. I tried to use those as filters or comparisons when I read Grandpa Stories. I thought about mysteries, intrigue and even self-help books as a guide. Luckily they all applied in reading this book.

I thought about “ a road less traveled, “ but that didn’t work. This book is all about a road well-travelled and what the author learned along the way. The story invites you to take a glimpse of what it was like to be a child of the 50’s and growing up in a time and place we all have similar memories of. It is heartwarming, heartbreaking and so much a part of everyone that lived through those times or knows someone that did. (that includes just about everyone)
