Allmänna fakta



10 short stories about American men or boys and their relationships with others.

Personally I found the stories unappealing and only managed to finish the book because they were short. If you are into baseball or hunting the book might be more interesting, but I can't say I enjoyed any of them.

I can see why some people would dislike it. It did get slow in parts. I had a difficult time getting through the internment camp section, but I loved the story and the writing. I've read it twice. It suited me.

I picked this up because I loved [b:Snow Falling on Cedars|77142|Snow Falling on Cedars|David Guterson||1677615]. It was quite a bit of a let down compared to "Snow", but I liked it OK. Mainly because I was interested in people who claim to have had visions of Mary. It's a very strange book that kept me wondering what Guterson was trying to do.

This is an elegantly written novel about old age and death, looking back and hardly bearing to look forward. Dr. Ben Givens, a retired surgeon, learns he has terminal colon cancer and decides to take one last hunting trip with his two dogs and stage an elaborate accident for his suicide so as not to cause grief to his family. His wife died a year or so before and he sees only pain and suffering in the future as he declines. Things do not go according to plan, despite his careful preparations. The journey is back to where he was a child on a farm with orchards and cherries. Some of the novel is a typical road trip journey peppered with chance encounters with characters. Other chapters he looks back on his life in the Second World War and meeting his wife. His writing switches between the small stuff, what he ate, how things felt to the big landscape he is in. This isn't a landscape I know but David Guterson draws it well and beautifully.… (mer)
