    "Oh my, what a great book"

    Not since I first read Wallace Stegner have I so enjoyed a book. I have never read Wendell Berry and someone told me this one was good. It's a gem. It's beautifully written with the kind of warmth for the characters that is easily communicated to the reader. The stories are about simple, caring, deeply humane people. And the reader! He also has a warmth in his voice, combined with his exquisite southern accents that is sustained throughout the book. If ever there was a book to listen to, this one is it. I didn't want it to end.

    "Beautifully done, but sad"

    Thsi book was well written, for sure. I loved the characterization and there were places where I laughed out loud. The description of a simple farming town make it well worth reading. But there's no getting around the fact that it is grim, a tale of loss upon loss and how good people cope with those losses. For that reason, I could barely get through it.

    The narrator is excellent.
