download epub Small Town Ho Author Duke Diercks –

Did not finish 2.5 stars for the 1 3 I read Thought it would be amusing since I too moved to the Idaho Panhandle in the early aughts, but I became bored quickly Did have some funny parts particularly the problems with getting a good haircut and the scary off road vehicle story. I lived many years in Sandpoint, and most of my family still lives there I m in Montana now, and this book brought back a lot of memories for me Duke is funny, and he made me laugh out loud on many occasions Mostly he made me hungry for a Dubs cheeseburger and strawberry dipped soft serve ice cream cone Sandpoint is as beautiful as Duke states One of the most beautiful places I ve ever lived, and I ve lived in many different places This was a funny and engaging look at small town life and I d recommend this book.

Currently, I m still reading this book Having moved from a large urban setting to a rural on within the past several years, I find that a lot of Duke s experiences intersect with mine It s an enjoyable read Funny and PoignantEasy to read Hilarious The descriptions and adjectives are creative And dead on.I live 30 miles north of Sandpoint Duke.Please write another book about anything The Ho of this title means Idaho just so you know This book is NOT hilarious, and it is not even that slightly funny most of the time I was forced to speed read it for info about Sandpoint because I have family moving there soon The writing teetered on good, but then he dumped in garbage words tons of them trashy and distracting Shame on you, Duke Clean it up and reach for something higher The next time you write about Idaho, show some respect to yourself. After countless conversations with my boyfriend, weighing the pros and cons city life vs life in northern Idaho, I could not have read this book at a better time It was a laugh out loud, entertaining and fun read Whether you ll find this book as entertaining as I did might depend on your familiarly with Norther Idaho Because I could identify with so many situations he described, I could not stop laughing at certain parts The author does jump around a bit with the subject matter, but, overall, a solid 4 star book for the many laughs
