Apple Dumpling Gang for Adults
Absolutely, sure I missed some parts. There are so many unforgetable characters both city and country.
I "knew" so many of the people who lived in this tale. Mr. McLarty made them live. While many were drawn large, I still came away understanding them and their point of view. He did write them large and I laughed over so many of the situations, I love Ron McLarty's characters and Steven Kearney is every wanna be published writer. His triumph in writing a published play was our triumph.
Sheriff Petey is the law envorcement many of us hope is out there on our side. Mountain Man got himself into a pickle and worked his way out of it learning a lot about himself in the process. It takes a lot of guts to change direction,. I loved the true affection that many of the committed to each other characters had for one another. Then there were the protesters who were genuinely true to their own belief. I felt such compassion for Sandy the bomber even as I pulled for her to get caught. She was so pitiful. Ron McLarty gets carried away some times but in the end I feel like I am listening to an Aople Dumpling Gang with adult themes.
I heard every one and did not have to wonder who they were. Again, Steven Kearny was so clueless much of the time and his voice reflected it.
I laughed so many times and did not cry. Listened several times to different parts to enjoy the humor.
Absolutely anyone who has worked in Planning or has any interest in the environment will grasp this book. Our area of PA is currently involved in what I call Gas Wars. The oil and gas industry is here to extract natural gas from the ground. We have the furs, and a-gins and they are so much like Mr. McLarty's characters. I am sure this is what has given me such pleasure in listening to Art In America. Only wish we could solve our neighborhood spats this easily. Planners on the Audible membership list should at least give this one a try.
Another great tale from Ron McLarty
