5.0 su 5 stelle A family portrait with coal country as its backdrop 2 marzo 2014
Di Saul Blake - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
In Ghost People: Death in the Mines Sandi Knapp gives the reader a good idea of what life must have been like for eastern Kentucky's coal mining families in the years after WWII. Not only that, she shows how poverty and desperation can tear a family apart. Her setting is vivid and rich with details, and her characters are complex and believable, a combination that successfully draws in readers and makes them care about these people.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Haunting, Powerful Read 20 luglio 2013
Di Rebekah Dement - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
As an English major, I've read a great many works of regional fiction, and I can honestly say this novel ranks among the highest in terms of authenticity and poignancy. This book is not without flaws (some probably due to copy editing), but the positives far, far outweigh any slight negatives. Ms. Knapp's characters are engaging and realistic, and her descriptions of the Kentucky landscape are hauntingly beautiful. While the novel never takes us inside the mines themselves, it succeeds quite resoundingly in capturing how the coal mines dominate the world around them, both literally and metaphorically. What the novel does best, in my opinion, is the creation of realistic and gripping relationships between the characters. The relationship between Junie Mae and her mother is one of the most powerful I've ever read, bar none, and all of the interconnected relationships create a complex and flawed world, equally as devastating as it is beautiful.

In short, I'd recommend this novel to anyone interested in literature about Kentucky, about coal mines, or about family relationships. The book will be well worth your time!

5.0 su 5 stelle Couldn't put it down! 28 maggio 2013
Di Laurie A Will - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Ghost People Death In The Mines by Sandi C. Knapp was a wonderful find. This is not my first choice of genre and these days it is rare that I find a book that draws me in and won't let me go in any genre. This book grabbed a hold of me and wouldn't let go until the final page.

I felt like I was with Junie Mae every step of her journey. I felt her sorrows, her joys, and her hopes and dreams. I felt her struggles to understand Mama and Amity's affection for her. The author used the perfect amount of carefully chosen details so the reader had no doubt what it was like growing up a coal mining community during the 1940's and 1950's and the hardships they endured. I read this book with little knowledge of coal mining communities, but I felt like I was transported to Kentucky and in the coal mining community from the first page.

All of the characters were distinct and lively. Junie Mae, Rose, Mama, Daddy, Granny Lee and Grandma Haley to name a few all were full of life and very different from one another. I read a lot and it's not often that a see such a large cast of characters so well defined. I felt like knew each one.

This book is a rare and special treat. I enjoyed the read so much I ordered another copy for my mother not wanting to let my copy out of my hands. I'm not sure what else I can say, just that I don't think my review can do justice to the work. I don't say this lightly, but this book touched me at a level that few books do. I will read this book again.

As a granddaughter of a coal miner, this story gripped me from the beginning. I felt like
I could have been reading about my own family.
Ms. Knapp really captured the spirit of the miners and the people living in the small rural
mining twins.
