I m sorry I couldn t get on board with this one at all I m not sure what the author wanted me to feel other than pity Mostly I was bothered by the dialect which was terrible to read It seemed as if the white character s dialect was written a little better than the black character s dialect and I couldn t understand why because both were poor Be that as it may I found Billy an unsympathetic character and just wanted it to be over Sorry this was not a good read for me and I was had high hopes for it

Every once in a while you come across a book that emotionally guts you It makes you angry sad and happy all at the same time all for different reasons When I read this book I was angry this had actually happened I was sad not for the characters but for the people behind them I was happy very happy that I chose to pick this up on one of my thrift store jauntsOne of the things I love about this book is it doesn t portray just one side of the story It would ve been easier to say the white people in this tale were inhuman monsters and didn t deserve to be shown as humans what kind of person could allow a little boy to be executed period Every character within this story has their place but they all are painted with flaws and strengthsThe folksy way this book is written takes some getting used to Although I uickly adjusted some people on Goodreads felt this book was too dramatic with it but with this book s plot being based on a true story I didn t feel it was too dramatic It s kind of odd that I felt that way with Beloved yet this book felt real possibly the lack of heavy magical realismAnother standout in this book is the setting I ve never been to a small town in Mississippi circa 1937 my time machine isn t exactly functional yet but if I had I believe it would be a lot like Mr French describes Even beyond the visual descriptions he describes what it sounds like smells like to make you feel like you re there To me that takes a lot of talentAlthough Billy does rank as one of my favorite characters his mother Cinder is my favorite of this book When she is described you can see her so clearly her posture her expression everything that she stays with you when the novel is finishedHere s an example of that Cinder pushes herself up pushes Katey away and throws her eyes back into the sheriff s face Her hair hangs over her cheeks blood seeps from her lip and nose the skin on her cheekbone is scraped raw but still she stares Billy by Albert French page 64 paperback editionBilly is a novel you wish was entirely fictional and had no link to real life events I would even say it s impossible to read it cover to cover without shedding a tear But by recounting and humanizing the people within Mr French has truly made a lasting impression on me I recommend this book to everyoneRating 5 of 5 Stars for an extraordinarily powerful book about racial injusticeAs posted on my blog Victorian Soul Critiues
