True Grit by Charles Portis

True Grit Rating: 5 Stars

Purchase Links: Hardcover, Paperback, Kindle Edition, Audiobook

I think 5 stars should only be given to the best of the best – this is one of those books. True Grit is fantastic. I suspect that the Coen Brothers film adaptation will bring some well-deserved attention to the book, or at least I hope so. Even though I’ve never read a Western and probably never will again, I couldn’t help but be immediately drawn into the story of horses, pistols, and campfires. Young Mattie’s narration and turn of phrase is unforgettable. It’s a really short story and worth every second. Read it. I will be shocked if you don’t love it.


I’m going to check this one out at your recommendation. from what I understand, the Coen brother’s film was truer to the book than the john wayne version.

did you find this to be true?
