    "John Grisham is a famous author from Arkansas, but he grew up in Mississippi. Seems like an odd choice as a book."

    "“Batman and Psychology” isn’t really a great book. It tries to apply real-world psychology to a character that’s been explored and explained for 80 years and it’s really not super well done. If you’re into psychology, you won’t like it because of how poorly the science is applied. If you’re a fan of Batman, you won’t like it because of how poorly the Dark Knight’s long and complex history is summed up into small, simple bits that don’t even resemble the original work."

    "I grew up and currently live in Arkansas, and I beleive Mr Jones was very good at describing the period of time and a good fictional story in "Elkhorn Tavern". I would recommend the book."

    "The summary of Iron Shoes caught my attention and decided to read it during lunch time at work throughout the whole week. It's a relatively short story, just two hundred pages or so, but it has great character development and the story unfolds at just the right pace. All around it was a great light read."

    "My brother is from Little Rock and after I read all of Charles Portis, I asked him if he knew any other good Arkansas authors. He threw this recommendation my way and it's very good. The author is from Arkansas, but this one is set in Tennessee. Mystery with a good deal of wit and humor. It charmed me."
