really liked it

Put a seriously talented writer together with a lifetime of unique, powerful, disturbing material and you get, well, 'Ordinary Wolves.' There were things I wanted to be different - I'dve loved to see the wolf vignettes resonate more with the main story line, for starters - but I loved every minute I spent with that book, flaws and all. I especially respected the understatement with which a lot of the most sensational material was presented. I would have been tempted toward drumrolls and crashing cymbals and then a slow fade with the camera focused on blood soaking into the snow. Seth just rolls these insanely powerful images and tough-as-hell moments out like they're nothing, just life. Which is part of his point I suppose.
