This was a good story and an easy read. My attention was grabbed from the beginning, there was atmosphere, instant action, and I found it compelling. I liked the jumps in time periods as marked by the years in section headings. I felt like the author conveyed a good feel of the sentiments surrounding the 1960s. There was a part in the middle that talked a lot about death and contemplating mortality that I found sort of unsettling, and for me, not necessarily essential to the story. Also, while I enjoyed the description of the fairy-tale cabin in the woods, the details got a bit long/much considered in the body of the story as a whole. But it was good, thought-provoking, exciting, and very human. I applaud the author.
