Winter’s Bone

I just inhaled Winter’s Bone by Daniel Woodrell. It’s a short book so it was easy.

People, the writing was so beautiful I HAD to keep reading. I NEEDED to know what he was going to say next. I hung on every word, every vivid and unique description.

I was sad when it ended- I could have read his writing for days. It also made me re-evaluate my own writing. I must start describing things more creatively!

The story, of course, was also interesting. It’s set in the Ozarks and features many poverty-hardened characters who are using violence and drugs to get by and live with ‘honor’.

Do yourself a favour and read this book.

Apparently, a movie has been made starring Jennifer Lawrence. I’m not sure how I feel about that, but I will reserve judgement until I’ve seen it.

  1. I haven’t seen the movie myself, I only know it was Jennifer Lawrence’s break out role. I’ve always been a bit interested to see what the story is about. May be a good candidate for me now – especially since you mention it’s a short. I always like short books, mainly because I feel like I’ve accomplished something when I finish them quickly.
