I only got to read one book this month. I picked it up randomly off the library shelf and the cover was taken off, so I had no idea it won an award. Reading this book was like putting on a really good movie, but being too tired to stay awake for the whole thing. I’ve never heard of Ron Hansen or read any of his other books, but he has a beautiful descriptive style that makes you look at things in a different light. I give it a 4/5 stars.
