I loved this book! It is sad but realistic and moving. It is also beautifully written. The characters don't have names but that makes them "everyman". This is a real classic, and it is wonderfully illustrated.

I think Sounder is a fairly boring book, and i should know i'm a book worm. i read about half the book then i started skimming, becaus it was so boring. i mean almost no one but the dog had a name. i believe you have to have a name not just a description to make an interesting person. also i belive that it is based on a true story, and i find most of those to be boring. i recommend this for adults, but not for kids. they'd probally get tired of it in the first two chapters.

I had to read Sounder for a novel class. Judging by the cover I knew it will be a boring story and I was right. Some chapters didnt even make sense and it was confusing cuz the characters didnt have names except the dog Sounder. It was pretty boring. Only the end was good.

Format: Paperback
This book tells the story of a sharecropper's family and their dog, Sounder. The story happens in the 19th century American South.
More importantly, I feel this story tells about courage and determination during hard times.
The focus is on Sounder because he is a hunting dog and a major contributor to the families' food supply. however, I think Sounder is the only character named in this story for deeper reasons.
When the father is taken to jail on some trumped-up charge, Sounder is seriously wounded trying to protect him. Despite his crippling injury, Sounder returns home. Sounder's recovery and persistance is a symbol of what the family members want to do. When the father returns, also crippled, the old dog, previously silent, lets out one last resounding, triumphant bark.
This is a compassionate and compelling book, one I couldn't put down. Even though it was sad, it was full of love.

I think this book is part good and part bad. It is a very touching story but it has too much inappropriate words in it like s)ex if you take off the sign and there is not enough romance and love!

This moving coming of age story will make you laugh and will make you cry. My 11 year old daughter loved it & still talks about it. My daughter said it ranked up there w/ her all time favorite dog story "The Wreck of the Ethie". Terrific book for the entire family to share.

I liked Sounder by William H. Henshaw. It is about a boy in the 1900's whose father is a sharecropper and he gets taken to jail because he steals meat from the big house. Sounder the boy's dog get's shot because he tries to save the father and the boy goes out to look for Sounder. His dad has to go on probation and the boy meets a teacher at school who helps him read. The boy goes out to look for his father and then reads with the teacher that has three lights in his room and the boy looks for his father and sounder and.... I would reccomend this book because it teaches you alot about the Depression and I wouldn't recommend this book because the boy has no name.

Sound won a Newberry. And because it is a pretty good book. It's a coming of age story for a young black male. It's about family, death, love, and god. Sounder is at the core--not physically there, but in the boy's mind (and I don't know that Armstrong ever named any of the characters except the dog). He isn't there except at the beginning and the end. But hey, this is a great book. Get it for your kids and enjoy.
