I wasn't really expecting to like this, never having succumbed to the Cold Mountain hype, but I loved it. I agree with the clever reviewer who said that Nightwoods is more correctly titled Night(woods) of the Hunter--the resemblances are pretty overwhelming--but that's fine with me. I loved Luce's preoccupation with personal freedom and the beautifully done North Carolina mountain setting. And it was delightfully tense in a Dan Chaon sort of way that made for a perfect October read.

Crystal It is totally Night of the Hunter! But I'm ok with it so far...
