3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't quite live up to promise of two previous novels ..., 22 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Didn't quite live up to promise of two previous novels, very melancholy. Getting to the end became a duty I felt Haruf had earned.


Eventide (Plainsong Series Book 2)

5.0 out of 5 stars A very moving and beautifully written novel in stark prose, 22 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very moving and beautifully written novel in stark prose. At the heart of the novel is the relationship between a vulnerable young girl and two old cowboy brothers who take her and her child under their wing and their kindness is repaid many times over.

Liked it very much but it dragged the story out an awful lot. Could have been said in half the time. Prose not brilliant. Dorries had a great story but she needs writing lessons.

Can't stand the smug tone, the "aren't I clever?" trite little stories of "real" (my hat) people.
Will delete it

Terrible. Same old same old. Dan brown is now having a laugh. Same plot marginally rehashed. Boring. I gave up

This review is from: The Luminaries (Kindle Edition)
I'm a big reader but this taxed even my stamina. I always finish a book but I struggled with this one. Too long. Plot lost momentum. Evocative of gold digger community though. Probably make a good film one day!

Edge of seat stuff especially first film. Hard to sleep afterwards! They don't make them like this anymore. Classic understated and fun!
