Beautifully written and completely engrossing; a story that will resonate with so many people. I bought this having read a good review and it was well deserved. One of the best books I've read for some time. I've now bought Augustus and Butcher's Crossing as I can't wait to read more of this superb writer.
I had to read this book for my book club and really enjoyed it... in fact it was the highest scoring book that our book club has ever read! It has a very simple and elegant style. The story told is of the life of William Stoner, of his ups and downs and relationships along the way. I didn't find it the easiest read but it was well worth it.
