it was amazing
Recommended for: anyone
Read in October, 1998

I read this in Israel of all places, years before the movie was made... If you haven't seen the movie, I would strongly recommend you read the short story first. It is excellent and gives me some new insight every time I read it. It is very short, but every phrase was purposely written. You have to read it very slowly, or an important detail is missed - this is an amazing feature of Proulx's writing that I greatly appreciate. Also, you will appreciate the movie more if you read the story first - they did a very good job of being true to the book.
