Same Kind of Different as Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore

so...occasionally i will be doing a book it goes.

The book is the true story of an unlikely friendship between 2 men from  extremely different life experiences. One is a high end international art dealer, the oether a drifter who spent most of his life as a sharecropper in utter slavery.  They meet at a homeless shelter, one serving food the other recieving charity.  The only thing  they have in common at first is the persisitant wife of the art dealer.   Through tragedy and love they forge a life long friendship.

I had a very difficult time finishing this book. Although the subject matter interested me, the book did not grab my attention and keep it. I really wanted to enjoy it. I started the book 3 different times and had to really work at finishing it. If I had not said i would review it I would not have continued to read. I know that I am in the minority as far as I can see in the other online reviews.

I am not sure why i found this such a difficult read. Maybe I will try again later.

 I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com <http://BookSneeze®.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
