5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting and unforgettable........., 3 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Winter's Bone (Paperback)
I watched the movie before I read the book and I ordered the book on the basis of how good the film was! Although this is not my usual genre, the story of Ree and her fight to keep the family homestead stayed with me long after the credits had rolled. The book is even more compelling and powerful than the film and the author has a way with words that quite literally took my breath away. This is a simple little story with quite a basic plot but the reader is drawn into Ree's world and cannot help but empathise with her and admire her tenacity and wisdom in dealing with the hardships that she encounters. She is truly an old head on young shoulders and the matter-of-fact way that the author recounts events is both chilling and heartwarming. I can't adequately describe the atmosphere that is set so I can only urge you to read it yourself - you won't regret it. And you will probably revisit this book more than once!
