  1. Born and raised in Kentucky not the mountains but had friends and later worked as a social worker for thehillbillies that Mr Vance talks about He has wrapped himself in this cloak about being a hillbilly when in essence he isn t one His grandparents lived the life in Kentucky he didn t First off I don t believe any of the people I knew or worked with would appreciate being called a hillbilly to explain away ignorance, violence and drug addiction Too many of these people are the salt of the earth [...]


  2. I ordered this book from because I d heard a rave review about it I think it was on NPR So, I thought I might learn something of Appalachian culture, about which I knew nothing except what I saw in Deliverance I didn t know what an elegy was, but I thought I d know by the time I finished But when I turned the last page, I still didn t know So I looked it up I found it defined as a poem of serious reflection, typically a lament for the dead I didn t find Hillbilly Elegy to be just that, exactly H [...]


  3. Total vanity project This guy is nothing special, there are hardship stories much absorbing and interesting than this out there This could be the biography of millions of people You could just as easily pick someone out of the Walmart check out line and ask them to write 300 pages of their life Just goes to show you ANYONE can write a book


  4. While some of the portrayals in this book of people from Appalachia are accurate, to portray most as being alcoholics who regularly engage in physical violence in the family as normal is way off base Most of our extensive Appalachian family and friends avoid alcohol use and frown upon those who imbibe, no matter if it is done in moderation I am sorry the author s family were brutal alcoholics but to paint the majority of those from Appalachia with same brush is ignorant and does not paint an acc [...]


  5. I, like a few others, doubt the ability of this author to have such clear memories of childhood events I just don t buy it for a second If I were to sum up what I learned, it would be that unless you have a social network of people working in front of or behind the scenes on your behalf, you re screwed This book doesn t offer any hope, but only points out why opportunities like his will never happen for many Americans I think a lot of people will be put off by his arrogance I wanted to stop read [...]


  6. As someone who was the seventh generation of her family reared in the coalfields of eastern Kentucky, I found the book appalling As a memoir, the stories about the author s dysfunctional upbringing in Ohio are entertaining, yet it is disturbing how political commentary and Appalachian stereotypes are peppered randomly throughout the book It almost feels as if the publishers asked the author to add of the exploitative narrative that always sells so well, and he just shoved it in here and there Th [...]


  7. It is all too easy to dismiss the views of both Trump voters and Brexit voters as uneducated The lesson that many politicians have got to learn is understanding as well as humility but that s another story I have thought about this dilemma a lot and was recommended this book by an American friend when I don t understand something my default is to read about it rather than just relying on soundbites on the TV The book wasn t quite what I expected and I was delighted I expected a formal study but [...]


  8. I bought this book after reading a favourable review in The Economist, and I have to say that I m slightly disappointed.Both the reviews I have read and praise found on the cover of the book itself tell potential readers that this book is key to unlocking the mystery of Trump s election and the Brexit result, but the text offered no clues of the sort Certainly, it is an interesting insight into what it s like growing up in white, working class poverty It goes a fair way to explaining the what of [...]
