I have read and enjoyed a number of Berry's essays and poetic works, so I thought I would give this novel a try. The author's notice warns readers not to seek out a subtext or interpretation within the novel; if you take that to heart, the story remains a simple, pleasant recounting in the life of a man whose life work is to be a barber, and who spends his time doing just that.

Although I enjoyed the novel, I think I will stick with Berry's non-fiction work rather than his fiction. ( )

My love for Wendell Berry and his work only grew after finishing this story. While listening I found myself crying many times on my bike rides to and from work before I knew why. Surely more times than I can count in the last few years of officially religious or sacred moments.

And this is the beauty of Berry’s view of the world, our place in it, and all of life. Very seldom do the officially sanctioned, well-thought through experiences, meant to draw out emotion, do much more than draw a tear whose presence is seldom remembered. Since discovering his way of life (and those of Port William) I’ve never been able to experience things in quite the same way as before. As with most experiences, I’m still learning to hold in balance the good with the bad, the joyful with the sad, and the clarity with the confounding.

This story now sits in my top five works of fiction. All of those stories have done a great deal of damage and reframing to my view of the world and all the creatures in it. And for that I am incredibly grateful. ( )

There aren't enough stars for this book or words to describe its wondrous mood and story. This is a man's telling of his life story, told in the first person. The narrator is beyond excellent. He sounds a bit like Sam Elliott. Listening to this book feels like you are sitting in the late evening in front of a roaring fireplace drinking a mug of home made hot chocolate with a close friend.

Jayber tells us his life's story from beginning to end. His friendships, his relationships, his successes and failures. It's a life well lived and you can't help but enjoy every minute you get to spend sitting next to him as he shares his story.

I'm a fan of Wendell Berry. He writes both prose and poetry and does it well. Berry is both a writer and also a farmer, and he brings both to us. I can't recommend this book enough, and you really should listen to it rather than read it. ( )
