A beautifully written book. I enjoyed both the story and the writing. The story moves at a slow pace spread across several decades in the lives of the central characters. But, I couldn't help but keep turning the pages. A great read!

See the comments of the previous reader. She sums up the story very well and gives a lovely perspective. Beautiful story of very difficult circumstances/issues told by a very loving, non judgemental friend. I highly recommended this book.

This is one of the greatest books I've ever read. I highly recommend it, although I must say that the book has difficult material. It deals with the brutal realities of farm and ranch life in rural Colorado in the early 20th Century. The things that happen to the characters and the things they do to each other are heartbreaking, but the voice of the narrator and the pacing of the book make it a great read and easy to immerse oneself in. Haruf works through difficult ideas and subjects with skill, honesty and even humor. This book should be on everyone's reading list.
