Our Love Will Go the Way of the Salmon is an audiobook of fathers and sons, love lost and regained, haunted pasts, and snake smuggling. From kidnapping to bank robbing, pursuing rainbow trout to unspeakable monsters, from the deserts of Texas to the desolate forests of Oregon, Our Love Will Go the Way of the Salmon is about the extreme measures people take to recapture the ones that got away.
This was a collection of strange short stories about fishing and love. And a lot of other interestingness in between. A few of the stories were longer and some were incredibly funny.
I thought the first story was great with grandma fishing and catching a wopper and it pulled her in but he saved the fish. I also liked the one where they went carp fishing and he wanted to have his 35 pound carp mounted. Too funny.
There was a great theme in this literature which was more like artwork. It was picturesque while contrasting salmon and love as well as many of the fish having blue eyes. It was definitely on the 'different' side. I think all in all at the end of the book I was just as perplexed as I was at the beginning.
Jay Wohlert did a really great job narrating this collection. He has a good voice and added that something extra to the book. I feel he made it easier to listen to and understand, IF it was to be understood. Overall, he did a super job.
