      If I could give this book 10 stars I would Talk about an rollercoaster ride of emotions I went through anger, laughter, love, and many tears It is set in a time when it is ok for the father to be the master of the house and no one to question it When women are to be submissive and you didn t dare question it Children were to be seen when convenient and not heard This story follows the trials of one such family but they all don t seem to want to follow those rules Find out how they manage to live [...]

      When I ve lived somewhere and left, I always like to find books that remind me of that place, that evoke the smells, sounds, ambiance of that place J.C Wing s book The Color of Thunder does that exceptionally well She really made me feel as though I were there.

      Move over Jane Smiley J.C Wing has arrived The Color of Thunder is a beautifully written coming of age story told from the viewpoint of Faith, one of three sisters in the Lindsay family The story begins in 1946 in Jackson, in the South These folks are model citizens fine, upstanding, and pillars of the community and none is self righteous than the Lindsay family patriarch Or at least this is what Pastor Lindsay would like his family to believe but one night Faith witnesses her father s dirty li [...]

    8. G.J. Griffiths says:

      The Color of Thunder is about the life of a pastor family in the Deep South of the USA in the 1950s, seen through the eyes of Faith, the eldest daughter The author is at pains to describe the various settings and the small community is shown in assiduous detail, from unstable racial relationships to the almost claustrophobic family home around Faith There are many occasions in the book when the reader feels that things are so slow and dragging, but this is an essential part of the story and its [...]

    9. Darren Freebury-Jones says:

      The Color of Thunder is a lovely narrative detailing the experiences of Faith in the South, and transcending its beginnings in 1946 to the 1950s The author formulates some wonderfully detailed characters, and the reader gets a real sense of the gossipy neighbors and family dynamics I was very much engrossed by the religious subject matter, as it is a theme I ve tackled myself, while the dark undertones gripped me Jackson is a land of hypocrisy and darksome corners.My only negative points are int [...]

      Starting off with a disclaimer I know the author of this book In fact, before I started reading it, I was worried about what kind of feedback I was going to give to her if I just didn t connect with the book.Happily, that was far from being an issue Faith Linsey s story pulled me in from the first page to the last There are a great number of books out there on the Civil Rights era in the south understatement , but what makes this one stand out is the highly evocative descriptions and the sinceri [...]

    12. C.D. Loza says:

      The story, somehow, reminds me of Marilynne Robinson s Housekeeping, not because they have similar plots, but because of the way it made me feel reading the book It was very descriptive it transported you right to the place of the lives of the characters The Color of Thunder made me feel like I was right in the mid 20th century Faith s story as she grows up and witnesses things how she changed and adapted to everything that has happened in her and her family s life is both powerful and life affi [...]

      I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review This book presents a series of lovely descriptions of life in Jackson, where the main character is growing up as the daughter of a preacher Landscapes, buildings, scents, and the church the father has built are all rendered in careful detail If you are interested in the South just before and during the Civil Rights Movement, and if you love to have things conjured for you in all their sensual particulars, you will love this bo [...]

      So this is J.C s first novel, but I was reading this author s work when I was 13, nearly 30 years ago I was just as excited now to turn each page and thrill at the fact that there was story as I was then I was sad to see this lovely story of a young girl growing up, growing into her own, end I can t wait for the next book, just like I couldn t wait for next story 30 years ago Good work J.C.

      Beautifully written, descriptive words I couldn t wait to turn the next page, the story line kept you in anticipation of what was going to happen I would definitely recommend reading this book I loved reading about the perspective of a little girl who knew that racism was wrong and not what God intended Towards the end of the book, it had very powerful symbolism Loved it

    16. Lctevergreen says:

      I totally enjoyed The Color of Thunder Because of the way J C Wing describes the characters and the sights and sounds of the setting it is easy to become part of the book and know the characters The story line kept me interested and anxious to continue reading to find out what happens next to Faith and Hope How could you not love Gracie
