** spoiler alert ** After happily ever after, what then?

I loved the dialects, the voices of the characters...... The way Mark was always clearly a yokel, but an intelligent yokel.

The search for God puzzled me. He took it up abruptly, then abandoned it when he met the Old Man. Or was that part of his search for a father-figure? Looking for god as some supernatural stand-by-my-side daddy, turned aside for an actually present man, then finally he realized he could stop searching. He had himself and friends and a wife, and that was enough.

I like that interpretation. Enough that I'm almost afraid to reread and find out if it's correct. Probably will look, though.
