Live Free or Die" is the official motto of the . state of New Hampshire, adopted by the state in 1945. It is possibly the best-known of all state mottos, partly because it conveys an assertive independence historically found in American political philosophy and partly because of its contrast to the milder sentiments found in other state mottos.

Ernest Hebert did a great job in the novel Live Free or Die. I think it was a very touching story. The relationship that forms between Frederick and Lilith was captivating. It made me read more becasue is was a nice love story. The ending sort of shocked me a little I was not really expecting what happened.
I think the most important thing on the book was the characters. The way the author went in depth on the characters made the story even better and easier to enjoy. It was a very easy read and It did catch my attention. Once I picked the book up It was impossible to put it back down until the end.
One thing I really liked was the way in which the author described Frederick's drive up to New Hampshire. The way in which he mentioned the scenery and how he named the routes and the polls and all that. It was great, I could relate so much because I drive through these routes so it was like, "oh I know what you are talking about." I also enjoyed the book becasue I liked the way in which the author spoke about not only Frederick's and Lilith's relationship, but also Frederick's and his father or him and his mother. Once again the characterization was great.
Another thing was the way in which the character spoke about "Live Free or Die," the van. This is such a big example of the character's feelings and way of living not only that, but also the loneliness and the desperation of the characters to find themselves was great. I can sort of relate to them because going into my senior year of College is like wow, what is next I want to live like that just pick up and go whenever I want to. i can relate somewhat to Lilith and how she came home and all these things were happening is scary, real life is scary.
I enjoyed the book very much and I recommend it to everyone.

Though the author only once in his narrative uses the prevalent New England colloquial expression, "A-yuh," Live Free or Die is most definitely a story about New "Hamp-shuh." No one but a native, like Ernest Hebert, could have written so true a story. The idiosyncrasies of New Hampshire and its people permeate his book. Its characters are folks you know if you live in the Granite State. Its customs, as recorded by Hebert, leave the New Hampshire reader nodding his head, thinking, "A-yuh, that's how it is," or "that's how we do things.
Hebert, however, is not writing just a folksy regional tale. The protagonists, Lilith and Frederick capture our interest, imagination, and eventually our hearts. Their loneliness, and their search for meaning and connectedness, resonates with universal longings we recognize, even if our personal circumstances are vastly different. We care about the resolution of their situation.
Sometimes, author Hebert seems repetitious, driving home a point the reader has already understood and appreciated. Such instances can diminish the power of a book, giving it a feel of the stereotypical. Overall, however, that is not the case here. Live Free or Die rings true.
You'll find it a good read - especially if you are from New "Hamp-shuh."

Ernest Hebert does a wonderful job intertwining the lives of Lilith Salmon and Frederick Elman, a modern day Romeo and Juliet. Lilith belongs to the upperclass of a small fictitious town in New Hampshire named Darby. Frederick, on the other hand, is part of the lower working class. Hebert takes readers on a journey through the lives of Lilith and Frederick as well as many other quirky characters who make up the town of Darby. With Lilith, readers are able to sympathize with the young girl as she makes her way through many hardships and ultimately tries to find a place for herself, not among classes but in her own life. With Frederick, readers get a first glimpse of a blue collar worker,who has constantly made a life out of being on his own and trying to leave Darby and all its drama behind. Not only does the novel focus on the blossoming relationship between the two star-struck lovers, it also includes an enormous legal battle that has the whole town involved, causing many problems amongst the upper and lower classes of Darby. This book pulls readers in right from the beginning and does not let go until the untimely ending. Whether you bring it to the beach or enjoy it under the shade of a tree, it's must read for the summer!

"Live Free or Die" is a novel that deals with a rural community and the characters within. The story itself portrays a town divided by class and economic standing. The characters of this novel are what makes the story so compelling. Being from New England myself, I found it very easy to recognize and relate to the way of life displayed by the characters in "Live Free or Die." The story revolves around Lilith, a young woman coping with the loss of her father and the unability to find herself. After returning home from college, Lilith finds herself in the midst of a struggle for land and the future of her home town Darby. She is forced into a situation that she is clearly not ready for, the story leads you through that struggle. The novel balances Lilith's upperclass character with one of Frederick, a young man from Darby who is far more blue collar that Lilith. They form a relationship that bridges the upper and lower class in the town. But bridges that are built unsoundly, eventually fall. Anyone who reads this book will be compelled to read deeper into this wonderful story. The contrast of characters and thier relationships are very well written. Although a bit slow at times, "Live Free or Die" is a great read, especially toward the end of the story. I found that when I was done with the novel, the impact it left on my thoughts was profound. This story will reach out and touch a reader, and it is definatley worth consideration.
