  • The writing about the natural world was my favorite part of this book too. And I absolutely agree that the movie looks too clean, too pretty.

  • I have this book on my TBR list and went so far as to purchase a hardcover. It's been patiently waiting on a bookshelf, in my home, for me to pick it up. I too am late to the party for certain reads for the same reason as you, when something is popular I tend to want to wait it out and join at a later date when it has become a bit more of old news than a current trend. Until watching this book review, I did not know that this book was becoming a major motion picture! That news has moved it up on my TBR list as I'll want to read the book before watching the movie. Interestingly enough, your review made me sad just thinking about the sadness of the book! Knowing it's a heavy read will definitely affect where, when, and how I ingest the material itself. I suppose having just traveled through parts of the Carolinas and returning to the rain of Juneau, combined with the moodiness of current life's patterns and circumstances (for me personally) this all may very well conspire to suit this particular read well enough. I don't need to recover from sadness. If I'm going to be immersed in emotion then I want it to fully wash over me. My setting sometimes definitely enhances the effectiveness of the books I read. I'm sure you can attest to this as well. I like that your review reveals details but is not so in-depth that the "spoilers" spoil everything. The information you share will be easy enough for me to gloss over or forget because of the fact that I haven't read any of the characters' names for myself yet. I also appreciate the sharing of your life and comparisons drawn between what you lived through and how it helped you relate to various aspects of the book and the lives shared within its pages. Watching your review definitely gives me confidence in moving forward with reading this book for myself. I don't think I'll be agreeing with the naysayers. Like you, I think this book is one that will speak to my heart and make it sing even if the songs being sung are lamentations in minor keys.
