Publisher's Summary

An unnerving tale of self-absorption and deception by short-story master Tobias Wolff.

Three friends are leaving the suburbs of Spokane on a hunting trip. Kenny is the prankster, harsh and mean. Frank is laid-back and full of idealism. Tub is overweight, sensitive, and the brunt of everyone's jokes. Searching for tracks in the snow, the trio has little luck until they spot a set of deer prints heading into a nearby farm. Kenny, desperate for a token of their difficult journey, insists that they ask the farmer's permission to hunt on his land. But as they set out in the fading sunlight, things go terribly wrong and what appears to be an accident becomes more and more questionable as strange events call each man's character into question.

Crazy story

This is a crazy story of friends who go hunting and one shoots another one and the others say they are taking him to the hospital but they keep stopping to get drinks and share their life issues along the way. It was entertaining. The story was good. The narration was okay but with this narrator it sounded like it was a book about or for old ladies instead of manly hunters. I'm sorry but a couple of them sounded gay and I don't think they were supposed to. Other than that, I enjoyed it.

Interesting

My first foray into Mr. Wolff. I wasn’t sure what to expect for that reason and that there is only so much that can be done in a story of this length.
Basically, it’s a study in self-absorption and of how we may not really know our friends. You can see basically how it will end almost from the start. Characters are well drawn and the style keeps you interested.
I’m not a hunter, but these are among the last three people I would ever want to go with if I was.
Narrator sounds like he has mic fright and drank way too much coffee before he started. Still, he handles the different voices well.

Great story

As you listen to this story You See the whole thing play out. I never want to go hunting with any of these guys. This story should make you think carefully about your hunting partners.
