The Wettest County in the World: A Novel Based on a True StoryThe Wettest County in the World: A Novel Based on a True Story by Matt Bondurant

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I liked the story about the Bondurant brothers. It was exciting and enlightening. Could have done without the story about Sherwood Anderson and was sorely confused by the skipping around in a short 5yr period. I think there was not enough differentiation between the one story and the other. Maybe a longer time span - a [different] journalist comes twenty, thirty, fourty years later - so the setting could be different enough to have helped me to keep my bearings, or maybe a simple chronological storyline would have done the trick. Or simply give the Sherwood Anderson story a book of it’s own…

In any case, I liked it so much that you bet I’ll be reading Matt Bondurant again one of these days.
