Long buried secret on her mind Hiring on The Honk eBook #9734 as a carhop Vena Takes Horse is soon shaking up business the locals and Caney's heartas she teaches them all about generosity of spirit love and the possibility of promise just like the sign say This was a book that took me on a nice winding journey Nice being the optimal word I didn't find it particularly amazing but there was SOME character development and the bad guy got hisher comeuppance The Brenda storyline left me unsatisfied though and while I released that not everything can be tied up in a nice tidy package there were bits that didn't ring true for me for example the introduction and picture of my mind of Vena really didn't match up with eh outcome at the end of the bookI found Bui delightful though Fav character by far

The Honk and Holler Opening SoonThe entire state Twelve years later the once busy highway is dead and the sign is as worn as Caney who hasn't ventured outside the diner since it opened Then one blustery December day a thirtyish Crow woman blows in with a three legged dog in her arms and a Billie Letts’ Honk and Holler Opening Soon is definitely one of my all time top 50 favorite books Re reading it pleases me immensely The reader is introduced to simple but genuine uirky and amazingly touching characters Most of them are regular customers and patrons of “The Honk Holler Opening Soon” as they come together mainly to drink coffee have breakfast lunch or dinner and visit at this side road café owned by Caney Paxton a war veteran The majority of the characters living in Seuoyah Oklahoma feel uite authentic; they are plain and decent people sometimes eccentric and that representation of normal folks appeals to me tremendously This time around – rereading I was mostly moved by Bui Kahn the Vietnamese immigrant That man has the purest soul Contrary to the book blurb I don’t think Vena Takes Horse is the one healing or the force bringing people together although she's an empathic soul but rather that courageous little Vietnamese immigrant barely mastering the English language but touching everyone's heart By the way his turn of phrases in the English language are often hilarious Strangely enough you can’t put an age to Bui Kahn You can’t put an age to most of the main characters really – you can only guess and it's a bit like real life not every fact is revealed The events happening here are a slice of life No to it Also to me it’s so refreshing that an author invites you into the life of plain people and each one of them have possibly a good story to tellAs a European generally speaking I haven’t been confronted with as many references to the Vietnam war And it’s a topic I haven’t read much about but here in this lovely little story its repercussions are part of the scars people wear and the author has a very fine way of briefly touching the subject and making it a part of the storyThe only thing I can add at this point is READ THIS BOOK and you won’t regret it It’s an effortless and disarmingly charming read
