This memoir of a boy growing up in Florida has stayed with me for years. Beautifully written, funny, poignant, all the positive adjectives of a memorable and lasting pleasure of a book.

What a ride! The story lived up to all the hype. A unique and ground breaking memoir in its time, but still quite relevant in my opinion.

This was not for me, I wish I'd read the good reads summary before getting this book. I thought it was going to be a natural history of Nantucket maybe something about the whaling history. But in fact it was more of a memoir of the authors. All fine and good but just not what I was looking for. Still looking for that book about the Nantucket Sleigh ride, my favorite song by Mountain.
