The following is an “add to the winter reading list” type of book.
why?? because you need to read it when you have time to sit and read every day till it’s done
picking it up once or twice a week doesn’t cut it
you forget details and find it harder to stick with the story
which to me really wasn’t “grab you keep reading till it’s done” till about the time you are 2/3 way through the book.
Not to say it wasn’t a good book…it was or I would not be talking about it here.
But it takes that long to start putting the pieces together and figuring out who everybody is and how they are connected.
If you are into the northern woods
stories about deserters crossing into Canada
and the way that affects their lives and the lives of those they love
topped off a hidden love triangle or two
you may enjoy this book
it spans the from world war to Vietnam and beyond
During this time we seen friendships develop
the waxing and waning of marriages and loves
life and death
their respective wives, children and friends
a campground originally bought and owned by Joe’s Dad
and really….perhaps ….you should get the book
you can learn more about Cronin by going to his justin cronin website
on his twitter cronintwitter he says he’s a pumpkin despiser and I’m not sure how anyone cannot like pumpkins!!!!
spaghetti squash…that’s another issue.
the book made me think a little of this song
