4.0 out of 5 stars A stunning historic fiction with lively characters and a compelling premise.
By Priya_Shrinath on 5 February 2021
Set in the 1870s Texas, News Of The World is a stunning literary fiction that follows the story of a young girl Johanna, who is still in trauma after being captured and later released by Kiowa for whatever reasons unknown.

Captain Kidd is now retired from spending his days in the Civil War and is now on a mission to spread the news of the world to remote people and places and to whoever would give him an ear and a dime! That's when he comes across the scared little girl who cannot speak common language, nor can she communicate with the Captain.

What follows is the journey of this unlikely duo across miles in search of Johanna's remaining family. In between, they'll face troubles that'll test their newly blossoming bond which will only get stronger from friends to close-as-a-family! Although it starts deliberately because Kidd would be rewarded for Johanna's return, soon that'd change.

Wow, what a read! The book flows as smooth as an ocean current and its very easy to fall in love with both Kidd and Johanna and their strange relationship. Paulette Jiles makes a brilliant portrayal of her story and the characters, slowly building a pace and urging her readers to laugh and cry along with her premise.

Atmospheric and compelling, it is no doubt that this book made a terrific feature film for Tom Hanks! I'm so glad I had a chance to read this stunning novel and highly recommend it to everyone who'd love a historical story with lively characters and learn about the Civil War.
