A River Runs Through it and Other Stories by Norman Maclean

Nazifa’s first review of the year

liked it
A River Runs through It is definitely four stars—it's lovely and quite haunting—but the two short stories don't manage to reach the same heights despite moments of brilliance. If anything, they really suffer by comparison and proximity to the title piece. ...more

Nazifa’s last review of the year

really liked it
A fantastic example of style triumphing over substance. Not a particularly fascinating mystery, but the characters and dialogue (of which there is plenty—I've never read a book that could be so easily adapted for the stage or screen) are so charming it doesn't quite matter. ...more
