    Boldly exposes the America of the 40s, December 24, 2000
    By 
    JL Miller (Colorado) –

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    “Tatoo” is the second book in Earl Thompson’s sweeping tale of a young man coming of age in the underside of the 1940′s. This is my favorite of all three, and the one that received the most media coverage in its first publishing.
    Thompson wasn’t afraid to write of the people he knew, and the characters he created are never one-dimensional — they eat, sleep, drink, fight, and indulge in sex. This is what life was really like for so many hard-working people during the WWII era, despite the rosy message musicals of that time force-fed the public.
    Steinbeck, Faulkner, and Dreiser are lauded as great novelists for their accurate display of human plight. Thompson is no less prolific and realistic, but because of his depiction of raw sex, I’d bet his novels will never be taught in any public school. The stark sexual themes — including incest and rape — will offend the masses but will never appeal to the “Debbie Does Dallas” set. Still,his protagonist is so real and the story so fun that this ranks high on my “Top 10 read every year” list.

    An incredible reading experience…., February 11, 1999
    By A Customer
    …that will touch all of your emotions. Written with a unique flair for exposing those rare nuggets of truth, Earl Thompson transcends generations and can easily be placed within this revviewer’s list of the top fifty American authors of all time. While his subject matter may disconcert and jangle an individual’s view of relationships, sex, military service and the odessy of living in America, one cannot help but be drawn in to Thompson’s eloquence and story telling mastery. Whether on the far left, extreme right or just plain in the middle of the road, I strongly recommend you reward yourself with this fine read!

    You’ll taste the grit in your mouth…, July 30, 1999
    By A Customer
    feel the hunger in your belly, have a sense of desperation in your soul. Not many novels alow me to let go and put myself in the place of the main character, but this one does. You will feel all of Jack Andersen’s pains, desires,triumphs,failures and fantasies as if they were your own. The very rare combination of great writer and consumate storyteller. A true tradgedy that Mr. Thompson is no longer with us. Highly recommended, but not for the prudish or politically correct. A must read.

Tattoo Girl Says

Not long ago, tattoos have seen an increase in interest. They have persisted since back then yet you'll find that there's a distinctive love-hate correlation when it concerns tattoos. There are those that understand them as a form of beauty and a means to showcase oneself yet others affiliate a deficiency of morals as well as other unpleasant qualities to those people who have tattoos. Disregarding their proclivity, we all know that tattoos have actually been enduring and will even carry on doing so for many years to come. At this point, you'll notice generally more people who sport a tattoo or at a minimum, deciding on getting one than in the past. Generally, the appeal that tattoos provide is a lot more appreciated by young adults and acquiring a tattoo that is quite competently designed would surely add on to it.

Unfortunately, a different way of regarding tattoos is really one which may cast them in a negative light. This acknowledges tattoos, most notably outlandish kinds, as a detail that reduces somebody's degree of professionalism especially in the work place. In such a case, possessing an exposed tattoo may possibly damage the chances of you securing a stable career. Naturally, this will depend on the manager's view on tattoos. A person who has any kind of tattoos inside of the confines of the office suit she or he is dressing up in is not going to encounter much problems as it is not apparent to other people in plain sight. Hence, tattoo placement is still quite essential nowadays and individuals who do not comply with these unmentioned standards might lose out. Tattoos in intimate regions are typically more sought for since they may be visible only by the people close towards the wearer.

When getting a tattoo, a specific thing that needs adequate advanced planning is your tattoo designs. Heart-felt text and symbolic artistic renditions are still the most prevalent types of tattoo designs simply because they hold their own even in 50 years. When you choose tattoo designs which offers ambiguous interpretations to the observer, you could potentially match them to whatever you are experiencing at the moment. "Cliched" designs should generally be steered clear of as they quite simply will likely not stand the test of time. Adding to that, you will be better off not getting tattoos which demonstrates very sensitive or taboo matters if you plan to stay away from complications.

A tasteful tattoo is usually elegant, fulfilling and great to admire whereas an inferior work could easily turn you into a small kid's artwork; not quite half decent but your nearest and dearest might just simply say otherwise. For this reason, much like any other thing that we do, groundwork is very important. You should never make purchasing a tattoo an impulsive decision. Do spend some time and seek information or recommendations to help you in your selection. If you give it your all, the result will be fruitful.
