Buy It, Borrow It or Bag It: Good Call by Jase Robertson

Jase       Jase Robertson is the latest of the Duck Dynasty clan to publish his autobiography and thankfully, he does not bother retelling many of the stories that were covered in “Happy, Happy Happy,” “Si-cology 1” or his brother Willie’s book about the evolution of Duck Commander.
If you watch the show, then you know Jase to be the instigating older brother who has a penchant for flaming hot doughnuts, handcuffing his brother and crazy uncle together and illegally catching frogs on a golf course at night. However, in his book we learn that Jase is a pretty stand-up kind of guy who was a virgin on his wedding night, is devoted to his family and like the rest of the Robertsons, is obsessed with God. (Not saying that’s a bad thing, but readers should be aware that God is mentioned nearly every third word in Duck Commander books)
In Good Call, we learn that despite his competitive nature, Jase is pretty passive and never misses a chance to evangelize. From the moment he met his wife Missy, he knew that he would marry her and he is quick to point out that all of the Duck Dynasty wives have been in the picture long before the family struck it rich.
Much of the book is the same story told from yet another perspective, which is fine and if Jase is your favorite “character” from the show, then this is one you will want to read. One thing that makes Good Call different from other Roberston books is the inclusion of daughter Mya’s cleft palette condition and how the family has responded to it. If you are a fan of the show, this book is a quick and easy summer read and you may even recognize a few stories that he tells as plot lines from some of the best Duck Dynasty episodes. Buy It or Borrow It if you are a fan of the show.
