By: Kim/ Amazon Verified Purchase This review is from …but they call me Sonny (Hardcover)
“All the emotions one human being can have, you will find yourself laughing, crying, getting angry with Sonny, and feeling his pain as you read. I will read this book over and over again. I suggest this book to readers out there who want to experience “real life” issues and to the ones who want to have the experiences of how life was like back in the days gone by. I really, really enjoyed this book and I hope many of you will read it too!”
”I finished “But They Call Me Sonny” last night! I truly enjoyed reading your Grandfather’s life story!!! I found it fascinating that your Aunt Pam could research it all and put it together in a way that kept you wanting to see what would happen next in his life. Of course, not knowing how he died ahead of time added a touch of suspense for me!”
“Hi. I was reading part of your book online today.. I have to admit that I was captivated by it. It is a very good read. I think I am going to buy your book this afternoon.”
“I truly am enjoying the book. You are a good writer. My husband hates it when I am reading, so I have to wait for him to go busy himself so I can get back to it. Lol I am going to buy a couple of the hard copies of this book. I hope to have you sign them both. I have an old Riverview friend who lives in Wyoming and I know she would really enjoy the book too. It will make a nice gift for her.”
“I love the cover!”

“This book has all of the magic of a good movie. Sonny at a young age has learned the values of a dream and hard-work , during a time in this country of needs. The way of the story being told will amaze you and yet tug at your heart. At times, you want to reach in and grab him, and tell him, it will be all right. The magic of this book will keep you on a journey of hope, hate and rage. But like all great books, this one will make you proud of all of our grandfathers and fathers, and the hope of all of the people during the great depression. I would highly recommend this book, and hope and pray, that this story will be told onscreen..

Pam I’m reading your book right now and I’am enjoying it but I had to laugh when Sonny tried to go over the 18th st bridge because I so remember that feeling he had and I knew right away what he had tripped on before I read it. I’m translating everything I read to my aunt she knew your family quit well. 4/20/12 FB Conservation.

I have to say, I finished the book today, “but they call me Sonny.” I have been thinking about the book a lot. I cried for at least 15 minutes after I read it. If you get a chance, get your hands on it and read it. Well worth your time.

I would say…Yes, it would make a great movie. So many different characters…so many different actors I can’t imagine playing them. (and I’m not even finished with the book!) I heard it will make me cry!

Pamela, I finished the book and loved reading it. I could relate to Pat’s Pond, John Deere, and other Waterloo and Iowa locations. Your book made me both laugh and cry. What an amazing story. I will definitely recommend this book to others. Thanks!
