Erin I really liked this movie. I thought it was great. I tried and tried to read this book but I just couldn't get through it. I even tried picturing Jude Law without his shirt on, but that couldn't even get me to read more. Should I really give it another shot?

Lucy Yes! Really, you should. The first time I tried reading it, it took me forever, because I kept putting it down, but then when I finally read it the whole way through I couldn't believe that I hadn't done it sooner. It's an amazing novel once you get into it, I promise!

post the username you tried to register and I can probably get it confirmed.

Jon After digging through my old emails, I find out I tried to register the name "SpiderTheBoris", which in hindsight is pretty much a lame username, but I would enjoy it being confirmed none the less.

Hilary I loved it and read it real quick, am I weird? I never pictred Jude Law w/ his shirt off because I didn't like him as Inman after I read the book (I saw the film first). Melita, I guess you could give it another try but I recommend Thirteen Moons by Fraizier instead. It's all about "the girl w/ the silver bracelts" and the sweet smell of lavender on an oversized coat...oh, and Featherstone and Bear, wow!

Heather I've read this one a few times, and no matter how much I tried to like it, I couldn't. This is weird since I usually shun the movie in favor of the book, but that's not something I'm doing in this case.

Meghan I think it was a way better book than movie. I unfortunately watched the movie and found it distracted me from the story more. Especially waiting for characters who didn't exsist or the went into more in the movie. I liked reading of Inman's adventure more and the music that was referenced in the book. Great album came from it called Songs from the Mountain.

Amanda I enjoyed this one very much and remember reading it on a plane trip. Getting into the world of the Civil War and the way things in the lives of the character were both urgent and slow-paced was really a pleasure.
Give it another chance...but if you can't get into it, well, different strokes.

Shannon I had a VERY hard time getting through this book. It by all means was not a bad book but I just could not get into as easily as others. I was not so hot on the movie, but I cant resist Jude Law shirtless, call me a kooky female.


message 48: by joy (last edited Aug 25, 2016 11:40AM) (new) - rated it 1 star

joy The only reason I made it through was that I was assigned to read it for an Appalachian Lit class. It was slow, not very well written and difficult to even care about the character. It was truly a big waste of my time


message 49: by Auralia (last edited Aug 25, 2016 11:44AM) (new)

Auralia I have to agree with joy, this book was a waste of my time. The characters are underdeveloped, the writing was horrid and I felt that the book is actually a waste of time and space.


message 50: by Jono (last edited Aug 25, 2016 11:46AM) (new) - rated it 4 stars

Jono this book is (just in case anyone struggling w/ it didn't already know full well) basically Frazier's retelling of the Odyssey, but moved to Civil War-era NC. The writing takes its cue from Inman's journey: it's on foot. The pace of the book is one of walking and seeing and listening. Some of the images in this book are as beautiful and distinctive as any I've ever read. It's definitely worth the effort, but I can sympathize: it took me a running start, too. But once I was hooked, I loved it.
