This review is from: Lyin' Like a Dog (Paperback)
'Lyin' Like A Dog' is a well written and highly entertaining story of young boys growing up in the South in the 1940s….This novel has some of the same feel as a couple of highly acclaimed novels set a hundred years before - Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.

This review is from: Lyin' Like a Dog (Paperback)
…a cheerful and mischievous little work that has an old world charm and playfulness ala the adventures of Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer.

This review is from: Lyin' Like a Dog (Paperback)
….I particularly enjoyed their Tom Sawyer-like adventures told in the childish vernacular of the narrator, Richard Mason

This review is from: Lyin' Like a Dog (Paperback)
Some people have compared Mason's writings to that of Mark Twain, and I can certainly see that.

This review is from: Lyin' Like a Dog (Paperback)
….He is a poor boy from rural Arkansas in 1945, a kind of son-of-Tom-Sawyer.

This review is from: The Red Scarf (Hardcover)
….While this is indeed a Christmas story, and an excellent Christmas story I might add, it goes way beyond that. ….It is a wonderful Tom Sawyer type of adventure with all the background, humor and whimsy of that notable work.

Joe E. White (Friendswood, TX) - See all my reviews

This review is from: The Red Scarf (Hardcover)
…The author has written an excellent Christmas story with a most unusual ending. The style of writing is reminiscent of Mark Twain and captures the reader's attention from page one to the surprise ending.

S. Peek (Rocky Mountains, USA) - See all my reviews
(TOP 1000 REVIEWER) (VINE VOICE) (REAL NAME)
This review is from: The Red Scarf (Hardcover)
This novel has some of the same feel as a couple of highly acclaimed novels set a hundred years before - Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. This one is set in Norphlet, Arkansas and features 11 year old Richard Mason and his sidekick John Clayton Reed. Much like Mark Twain's characters, Mason and Reed are young adventurers who deal with a wide variety of situations that are great fun for the boys as well as the readers.
Although I am certainly not trying to 'dis' an American legend like Mark Twain, this book is almost as good as his two classics. If the story were expanded a bit, it just might top Twain's best.

Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Red Scarf (Hardcover)
This novel is absolutely amazing in its capturing a time and place that has long since passed. The ending is perfect. I would recommend it to readers of all ages. Richard Mason may well be this generation's Mark Twain.
