I love this book I was barely starting to read it and I was already amazed of how much I was enjoying the reading experience and how much I like the way how it was writtenDefinitely I want to read other books by Charles Portis and I hope to do it in the near futureI wasn t ignorant about the story due I remember that I watched the film with John Wayne at some moment and definitely I watched the recent remake with Jeff Bridges I would not put a thief in my mouth to steal my brains I chose to read the book mainly on the basis that I want to include some westerns in my shelves and in that way to add this genre to my range of literary genresHowever I never expected to get hooked in the way that I got even with a story that basically I knew what happens But the selection of words by the author and the mix of clever humor with hardboiled drama was a wonderful experienceI read about the other books by Portis and I am glad to see that almost all get in the range of western like stories and that they have that same combination of humor and dramaI am sure that Portis can easily become one of my new favorite authorsCharles Portis is a master creating characters the young and determined Mattie Ross the rude and bold Rooster Cogburn and even LaBoeuf that he didn t click to me on the recent film I learned to understood the character here on the original novelAnd I can assure you that the rest of characters not matter how small their parts can be they were uite well developedSomething that I liked too it s that since this is a story about vengeance well vengeance has its price you can t expect to embrace that dark feeling and thinking that you will be able to get back to your life without changes and obviously without spoiling anything you will realize what I mean if you read this great book You must pay for everything in this world one way and another There is nothing free except the Grace of God You cannot earn that or deserve it The title of the novel True Grit is chosen in an excellent way resuming the heart and soul of the storyDefinitely one of the best western novels that you can readHighly recommended

True Grit Characters ´ 102 Review à PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Õ Charles Portis Charles Portis Õ 2 Download In the 1870s young Mattie Ross learns that her beloved father was gunned down by his former handyman But even though this gutsy 14. I loved itMattie Ross is one of the great American children characters along with Huckleberry Finn and Scout Finch Portis protagonist and narrator looks back from the early 1900s to her childhood in the 1870s not long after the end of the Civil War when she as a 14 year old girl went out into the Indian nation to find her father s killerReminiscent of Mark Twain and also Barbara Kingsolver s narration in The Poisonwood Bible the lyric uality of Charles Portis s prose is a treasure Portis has captured an earlier language and a world than a hundred years gone comes alive again in the pages held before us People do not give it credence that a fourteen year old girl could leave home and go off in the wintertime to avenge her father s blood but it did not seem so strange then although I will say it did not happen every day I was just fourteen years of age when a coward going by the name Tom Chaney shot my father down in Fort Smith Arkansas and robbed him of his life and his horse and 150 in cash money plus two California gold pieces that he carried in his trouser band Mattie Ross shows a pluck not often seen in today s reality nor in our modern literature Portis character was lifted from history as seamlessly and as accurately as her sharpened pencil bookkeeping and the uality of her vouchers for payment This teenage girl was every bit the match for hardened men of her day and her narration looking back from a long life conjured images of a tough older women wizened to her world yet acknowledging from a distance of time the stuff of her earlier self Portis has Mattie speak some gems As he drank little brown drops of coffee clung to his mustache like dew Men will live like billy goats if they are let alone You must pay for everything in this world one way and another There is nothing free except the Grace of God You cannot earn that or deserve it But I had not the strength nor the inclination to bandy words with a drunkard What have you done when you have bested a fool The films both of them Henry Hathaway s 1969 award winning film starring John Wayne and the Coen brothers film starring Jeff Bridges are two of my all time favorite movies While Portis novel is told from the spunky perspective of Mattie Ross and both films follow her as the central protagonist in both the character of Deputy Marshall Reuben Rooster Cogburn is the man who steals the show Who is the best marshal they have The sheriff thought on it for a minute He said I would have to weigh that proposition There is near about two hundred of them I reckon William Waters is the best tracker He is a half breed Comanche and it is something to see watching him cut for sign The meanest one is Rooster Cogburn He is a pitiless man double tough and fear don t enter into his thinking He loves to pull a cork Now LT uinn he brings his prisoners in alive He may let one get by now and then but he believes even the worst of men is entitled to a fair shake Also the court does not pay any fees for dead men uinn is a good peace officer and a lay preacher to boot He will not plant evidence or abuse a prisoner He is straight as a string Yes I will say uinn is about the best they have I said Where can I find this Rooster I have loved the films for years but this was my first time reading and the first thing that came to me besides both films loving proximity to the text is that this is a funny book I smiled freuently during many of Mattie s descriptions of events and laughed out loud several times Though I would not call this a comedy it is a well rounded and brilliant masterpiece that contains comic elements She said Goodbye Reuben a love for decency does not abide in you There is your divorced woman talking about decency I told her I said Goodbye Nola I hope that

On the whole the western genre doesn t inherently appeal to me I m not a modern emasculated male yearning wistfully for a time when men were men and dames were etc I am relatively content being a gangly Gentile nebbish afraid of his own shadow and estranged from his natural heritage of hunting foraging and defecating unashamedly in a shallow hole behind a cactus Nothing at the heart of my being cries out for a pistol a lariat or a fitful night on the prairie punctuated by the wails of a coyote or the whooping of a marauding Indian band I am neither a hero nor a survivor by nature I am an endurer an eker an avowed anti Rousseauist who cringes at dirt bugs heat and peril Especially peril As a conseuence I don t find many vicarious pleasures in the western genre per se The strong silent gunslinger isn t an ideal of mine even in the wildest farthest flung reaches of my imagination where I let the what if impulse have free reign Although I try to keep an open mind but often fail I can t help but find the idealization of these steely male archetypes childish and self negating Not childish in the sense of enjoying the healthy play of imagination but childish in the pejorative sense of stunted and entirely reactionary But I m being priggish againMeanwhile True Grit is in fact a western and I enjoyed it very much I toyed with the idea of giving it five stars but I feel as though I ve become slutty in my star disbursals lately and truth be told the climax is a bit much with misfortunes seeming to compound in a extravagant way In order for genre fiction and in this case the western particularly to work for me it must transcend its status as genre fiction It can t only be say a simple classic western narrative with the usual livery trappings populated by braggadocio and swagger and a mouthful of chaw because I don t fetishize these things These aren t enough for it to be enjoyable True Grit than satisfies this reuirement for me As you probably already know either from the book itself or its two film adaptations it s a story told by a teenage girl which already tweaks the genre out of its usual torpor She the heroine Mattie Ross is an old fashioned eccentric precocious indomitable moralistic but practical pedantic stubborn louacious and because of all these traits contrary to the western archetype of the teenage girl Of course I say the western archetype very loosely because is there really an archetype for girls If there is one it probably doesn t extend much further than the idea of a pigtailed girl fetching water from a well or praying in school in her ankle boots and gingham Or maybe I swiped that from Little House on the PrairieI won t dwell too much on the book itself because its story is fairly well known Mattie employs a drunken one eyed Federal marshal of dubious lawfulness to avenge her father s death Along the way they join forces with a puffed up Texas Ranger who s chasing the same man for a reward in Texas But this is neither here nor there for me because the success of True Grit depends on its generous characterizations and its wonderful ear for language In these ways it certainly transcends caricatured rote that hobbles so much genre fiction
