    "Extraordinairy story and narration"

    Have read this book twice, not something I normally do, and now listened to it again in audio format.
    It remains an extraordinarily well written story about a man's journey, of literally and figuratively coming to terms with his dying, through the physical journey he takes through the landscape of his youth and the people he encounters there.
    This narrator truly does justice to the story, with Guterson's descriptive language of the landscapes the man has traveled and is traveling through.

    Story
    "First rate novel about a man facing death"
    Any additional comments?

    Don't be put off by the subject. It is about a man facing death but full of positive spirit and more about life than death. Other than the shocking beginning, the book is never depressing. I preferred Snow on Cedars, by the same author narrator pair, but this is still a fine novel and deserves 5 stars.
