it was amazing
Recommended to Amy by: Molly D

Why have I never heard of this author? He is an amazing writer! (I liken him to Wallace Stegner, Leif Enger, Marilynne Robinson.) I thoroughly enjoyed reading this quiet, humorous, intelligent book about homesteaders in Montana in 1910. I love the narrator (a 13-year-old boy-genius). I love the story. I love, love, love the language. I'm going to read Ivan Doig again as soon as possible.

Molly I'm so glad I didn't lead you astray and that you felt the same. I'm always a little nervous to rant and rave about a book. Thanks for being on my team. By the way, I am loving "The Book Thief." So interesting. I'm about 2/3 of the way through and if I could stop being so tired, I could probably finish it faster, but I keep falling asleep!
See you Thursday!

Marlene Keith An excellent author, you've expressed my feelings 100%.
