Reviews - What do customers think about Eating Mississippi?

Scott Ely has written the perfect ending  Apr 17, 2006
Scott Ely's characters are not quite right. There is a line in an old Neil Young song: "Your Cadillac has got a wheel in the ditch and wheel on the track." Scott Ely's characters are like that. They are situated in the world, but they don't quite fit. They have jobs. They play tennis. They have friends. From the outside, they appear to fit (sort of). But they have this strange interiority. It is this odd and densely human interiority that lights up Ely's books and stories.

I like everything Ely has written. Although I am a big fan of Pitbull, I think Eating Mississippi may be his best book yet. As this unlikely group travels the river they are transformed and transform one another. As the story draws to a close, you will try hard to imagine how it will end. I won't spoil it for you, but let me just say: Scott Ely has written the perfect ending. It is a great story with a perfect, and I mean perfect, ending. Enjoy.
