Loved the stories in this one and the voice of the author as well!

I really enjoyed reading this book! I love J Golden Kimball, his stories are amazing. But what I really thought made this book is the writing style of the author. I love the way she inserts her own personality and color into every sentence, paragraph and chapter. It made me love J Golden Kimball even more than I already did.

I loved the stories in this book! I love the way the author points out in the very beginning that we don't know how many of the stories are actually true, but that becomes part of the fun of J Golden Kimball. He's a little bit of a "Mormon Myth," even though he's a real person and did real things.

I love that there were tons of things that happened to J Golden Kimball that I had no idea about. There are bits about his life when he was a child, and what happened to his family when his dad died (Wow, I had no idea how poorly his family had been treated at this time!), and it even talked about how he died. I had no idea that he died in a car accident. What an amazing story, he lived a long time. He was born not long after the pioneers came into the valley in their wagons and lived long enough to see cars and other modern inventions.

What an amazing book! I loved it!
