4.0 su 5 stelle Hurry Sundown 30 settembre 2014
Di Lynda Mondshour - Pubblicato su
Acquisto verificato
I've read Hurry Sundown twice so I do enjoy the novel. I haven't read this copy yet, I just ordered it so it would be in my library. It's not available on Kindle, apparently. It is an old yellowish paperback but in good condition, not failing apart, etc. You can't beat it for the price.

1.0 su 5 stelle DONT DO IT!! PLEASE DO NOT READ THIS BOOK!! 2 settembre 2013
Di CELIAJO09 - Pubblicato su

after struggling through over 1100 pages (90% too much EMBELLISHMENT & overdone characters) most of whom are lying, bigoted, greedy sob's,(ESPECIALLY HENRY)...the reader finds a few of the main characters he can appreciate.
so after 20 hours of difficult reading trying to get to some type of positive outcome for the two poor dirt farming families that the author has presented in a favorable light the last couple of pages, HE HAS HENRY BLOW UP THE DIKES THAT DESTROYS THE HOMES & RUINS THE FARMS OF THESE TWO FAMILIES, KILLING 2 OF THEIR CHILDREN IN THE PROCESS.......(the poor farmers are blamed for the explosion) has the young IDEALISTIC PASTOR FIRED & RUN OUT OF TOWN & HENRY WINS HIS ELECTION TO A COUNTYWIDE OFFICE!!!

5.0 su 5 stelle Length Imtimidating, But Fabulous Read 13 giugno 2012
Di V. Risoli-Black - Pubblicato su
I too had always wanted to read K.B. Gilden's two volume book, "Hurry Sundown" (they are the husband and wife team (Bert and Katya)), but was put off by its unusual length, but taking Volume One with me on a 8-hr. bus trip to Pittsburgh, one that I knew I would need something to read as we traveled all night (I can not sleep for inordinate fear of missing my stop), I found myself enthralled by the vivid descriptions and compelling story. I think if you like to read and set aside the time and give it chance, you will have a wonderful time with this book. I quickly finsihed Volume Two upon my return from my trip. I had seen the movie version several times and to read the original novel was a heightened desire after really liking the film (even more today as critics are coming to see Otto Preminger's later films in a different light than upon their release). But I marveled at what had been cut and then, as I often do not do, found the changes for the screenplay justified, but in no way was I about to be disgruntled by the length of the book. I was just glad I could absorb more of the events and background of these characters. No, I do not compare "Hurry Sundown" with "Gone With the Wind." I give "Hurry Sundown" credit on its own merits which are many. It is one of my accomplishments that I will never regret.

2.0 su 5 stelle Hurry Up and End! 27 ottobre 2009
Di Oldie Man - Pubblicato su
I have tried on several occasions to wade through this 1,000+ page book wanting so much to see it through, but it is a tough book to finish. Way to long, it goes on and on and although the husband and wife team of K.B. Gilden are very good writers, I question how in the world the editors allowed this rambling opus to go to print without cutting out about 500 pages. For example, page 293 (yes I made it that far) of the 1st edition hardback.
A woman is having a tick removed from her hand and we read this. "What is love and what is death and what is the death of love? It was immaterial and irrelevant. What is life? What is reality? The physiological timetable of the womb about to cast the unfertilized egg. A psychological pattern, masochism responding to sadism. A tick sucking at the blood, and infinitesimal speck on the blood-rusty edge of a knife blade. Faucet leaking drop on drop. Scuffling for the rent man...." HUH? This is not an isolated passage. The book has hundreds of these and after awhile it becomes quite tedious and irritating. To compare Hurry Sundown to Gone With the Wind is like comparing Valley of the Dolls to To Kill A Mockingbird. Yes, it takes place in the South, but I saw no other comparison. The characters are strange and unlikeable. There are times the dialog is very odd and ambiguous. I want to like this book. Maybe someday something will click, but for now, I can see why it never became a classic despite all of it's ballyhoo upon publication.

Hurry Sundown was a great read, if you like to read. I would love to read more on the authors and wondered if K.B.Gilden was a pen name and if Lois Gould has any connection? I too liked the characters and circumstances, which I found very believable, since I am an Atlanta native, raised there during this period. Coastal Georgia & South Carolina was a vacation spot for my family when I was a child and I still love to go there. I look forward to seeing the movie with Jane Fonda. Gone With The Wind is no comparison.
