Very interesting plot. I like the quote in the beginning. Seems like a really nice story to share with your family. Thanks for the great review.

Great review. A story of time travel and a young man getting to see his grandpa as a young man can't wait to read this #freebie. I know I used to love listening to my grandma tell me stories about when she was little and I'd love to go back in time to see her as a young woman. Congrats on being BOTD

The book is a great book. I don't like sport but I was still able to get along with the book maybe because I love baseball game.

It reminds me of my late grandma who is a fan of sport. I rate it 3 out of 4

The name of the book would have had me running the other way, but these reviews may have changed my mind. It sounds like a great read and now I have to read it, i mean who wouldn't want to experience the nostalgia of going back in time :D even through reading. My grandpa died soon after I was born and i hear he was a great guy and I would give anything to spend time with him, this sounds like a creatively written book, the writer should be proud and am happy for the opportunity to review it..
thanks for the reviews everyone

It is intriguing how people can go back to time past to unravel the significance of an item and gain some knowledge from it.This is an intricate novel.

The book actually highlighted how sometimes we young lads do not actually appreciate our old folks. Maybe because of our youthful exorbitant lifestyle. I feel guilty right now and would love to start righting my wrongs. With the rating of 4 out of 4, I have to give credit to the author for the meme and travel back in time.

This is a novel I surely want to read because of the '1940s theme'. And I must say that your review is great.

If reading the review itself makes me feel nostalgic about the days we spent with my late grandpa, what of reading the novel itself? I must agree that the "Tattered Box" is a novel worth reading.

This book sounds interesting and reminds me of all the time I spent listening to my grandparents and great grandmother talking about their lives. Should be a great read.

I couldn't agree more with you that the best stories are told by our parents and grandparents. After going through your excellent review, I am definitely going to go through this book.
