What I'm Reading Today: Nightwoods

I love the way Charles Frazier uses the English language. I read his Cold Mountain when it first came out in paperback, then Thirteen Moons shortly after I got home from vacation recently. Sure was glad to find this new one:

  1. I know we need a raise we needed it for 2 years and I think they are only giving a raise this year because election is drawing neear.

  2. Patsy, you're probably right.

  3. It's been on my list since I heard it was coming out. I'm getting it soon!

  4. 4th Sister, I'm happy to hear from you! It's always good to have one book in your hand and another standing by, isn't it?

    Janet, did you read his other two books?

  5. I read "Cold Mountain" but not the other one, I don't think.

  6. Just finished listening to "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle" by David Wroblewski. Wonderful book and the narrator on the audio book , is Richard Poe, who did a great job too. Think you'll like it.

    Glad to hear Charles Frazier has a new book out. Love his writing!

    The best to you,

  7. Pup, I read "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle" a couple of years ago and liked it very much. It's a story that will stick with me for a looooong time.

  8. A masterpiece of storytelling and sentence construction. Frazier creates vivid characters reeling from the inequities of life but still moving forward. Read entire book in two sittings as I could not leave the characters alone in the constant danger of the nightwoods. I probably would have finished it in one sitting had I not been so inspired to wander lost in the elegance of Frazier's thought provoking descriptive prose.
