Our Souls at Night
Our Souls at Night: A novel | Kent Haruf
A spare yet eloquent, bittersweet yet inspiring story of a man and a woman who, in advanced age, come together to wrestle with the events of their lives and their hopes for the imminent future. In the familiar setting of Holt, Colorado, home to all of Kent Harufs inimitable fiction, Addie Moore pays an unexpected visit to a neighbor, Louis Waters. Her husband died years ago, as did his wife, and in such a small town they naturally have known of each other for decades; in fact, Addie was quite fond of Louiss wife. His daughter lives hours away in Colorado Springs, her son even farther away in Grand Junction, and Addie and Louis have long been living alone in houses now empty of family, the nights so terribly lonely, especially with no one to talk with. Their brave adventurestheir pleasures and their difficultiesare hugely involving and truly resonant, making Our Souls at Night the perfect final installment to this beloved writers enduring contribution to American literature.This eBook edition includes a Reading Group Guide.

This was good. I loved the relationship between Addie, Louis, and Jamie (and the dog!), but wth is wrong with Gene!? How can he be so awful to his mother about all this? My grandpa, some years after my grandma died, had a lady friend/companion, and I don‘t know that either my mom or her sister (Grandpa‘s daughters) had an issue with it. Really Gene? Can you not let your mother be happy? Ugh!

Such a wonderful book. Robert Redford and Jane Fonda are a bit more glamorous than how I pictured the main characters, but I still enjoyed the adaptation.

Sorry Andrew! Cheating a little for August. Neither made my top 21 but both were excellent. While Our Souls didn‘t give me the happy ending I wanted it was what I think happens IRL more often than not. ATE is one of my favorite bands. I loved getting his back story and gave deeper meaning to some of his lyrics.

A lovely quiet book about an older man and woman who have both lost their spouses and find solace from their loneliness in each other. Haruf‘s ability to create realistic relationships shines here. He gives us glimpses into others lives that feel deceptively simple. Addie and Louis share their histories during their peaceful nights together while discovering that life can still hold sweet moments if you‘re willing to take a risk. #readathon

This is a kind of unusual little book, but oh so beautifully written. It read like poetry almost, an easy and enjoyable read. The characters made some interesting choices but I enjoyed the character development and how beautifully it was written. I had a hard time putting it down and read it in less than 24 hours. I‘m looking forward to reading more by this author.

I listened to this short book while I worked today. It‘s a beautiful story of a 70 year old widow who invites her neighbor, who is a widower himself, to begin spending nights at her house because she is lonely. It‘s nothing to do with sex, she just wants to talk and have a warm body beside her in bed. The friendship that develops warms my heart.

I will read everything Haruf prints, I can‘t believe I only discovered him in the last couple years.

Soubhiville I just googled him and see that he passed away several years ago. 😢 There are 3 or 4 books of his I haven‘t read yet. I‘ll have to savor them. 2y
KVanRead I love everything he wrote and was so sad when he passed. They made a nice little Netflix movie of this one, btw, with Robert Redford and Jane Fonda. 2y

What a lovely book! People being decent to one other and taking the trouble not only to talk but really communicate and sweeten each other's lives thereby.
How does he do it? I haven't read such simple, pared back prose since his Plainsong, probably, but it never comes across as meagre. Something like a really good, homemade bread: wholly satisfying without the need for five kinds of frosting and sprinkles.

It is a beautiful story about two people finding companionship in their 70‘s. It is also a story about not wasting time and not bothering with what people do or don‘t think about you. I shed a tear at the end.

2020 has been a great year of reading so far and my third 3x3 grid did not disappoint. I read several interesting shorter books for this grid because I was a bit overwhelmed by The Goldfinch and didn‘t want to put myself in a chunkster reading slump. Tagged my favorite!

Lindy You aren‘t alone in feeling let down by The Goldfinch. I thought it was okay, like a really long YA novel. (edited) 3y

I loved this bittersweet story of Addy and Louis discovering each other in their 7th decade. I‘m always amazed when a short book can be told so completely. I‘m thinking if the story had been longer we would learn more about her son, Gene. I don‘t even want to understand Gene so I‘m perfectly content with this concise, beautiful book.

#ReadTheUSA2020 Colorado

Susanita Lovely book. I agree about Gene. 3y
Cinfhen Have you read his series ~ it is sooooo good (edited) 3y
marleed @Susanita Gene made me cry. My father married at 62 and passed away at 89. I‘m grateful none of my siblings were Gene. And quite honestly, if any of us had made him choose between us or Judy - for part III of his life, it would have been Judy. And good for him! 3y

marleed @Cinfhen This was my first Kent Haruf book. I‘ve owned it for years. I saw it recommended for Colorado and since I‘m still recovering from the size of Goldfinch, I went for it. I‘m so glad I did - good things come in small packages! 3y
Cinfhen I know that feeling!! Plainsong is a trilogy set in Holt, Colorado and each book is small but packs a punch. Each novel looks at a slice of life in the small community- very similar to Our Souls At Night. The first two were excellent, the last book was disappointing. Anyway, give them a shot if you feel like it. 3y
marleed @Cinfhen Will do - thanks! 3y

“You have been good for me. What more could anyone ask for? I‘m a better person than I was before we got together. That‘s your doing.”
I loved this book so much. It had so much emotion in it and such a great portrayal of love. I can‘t believe I didn‘t read it sooner.

I just finished reading this and so I am still mulling it over. I think the story behind how the author wrote it is very compelling. I do think it is well written and I do love the two main characters and also Addie‘s grandson. I think there is a lot to this with the message of how much of life can be wasted worrying about what others think. It is a good a small book and a really quick read.

A smaller novel with short, to the point chapters. Easy to read and pretty enjoyable. I“m just not sure how I feel about the ending. Which I think is intentional. It ends in a place where I'm not sure how I feel about the characters. Are they suppose to be likeable, should we be rooting for them? If not, then what is the author trying to say to the reading. It works because it's a shorter read. Not sure I would even like it, if it were strung out

I didn't know until I looked for this image that this was made in to a Netflix movie- I will have to watch it now. I'm curious how they end it. This is a super fast read. I enjoyed his writing style, I think I'll read some of his earlier work. I read this for a reading challenge- I needed a book published posthumously. Sadly the author wrote this as he was dying of cancer I believe.

What a beautiful, heartbreaking, breathtaking novel. It‘s a short, simple story, but it contains such depth and heart. The characters were so well fleshed out, they were truly three dimensional. Two lonely senior citizens find companionship with one another, and they‘re able to make each other happy for a while. This was the author‘s final novel, published posthumously. What an exquisite literary legacy to leave behind. Have tissues handy.

5. first grade, because I did not yet have adults pressuring me to do a bunch of extracurricular activities like piano lessons, cheerleading, various sports, marching band, scholars bowl...all that crap I didn‘t want to do but had to do so adults can live vicariously.

Today was a better day. I‘m back into #LitsyWalkers again. I walked to the Little Free Library and I picked up the tagged book & a couple of self help ones as I‘m in a bit of a rut at the moment. I made the discovery today that I can gift books on Audible so if anyone wants Where the Crawdads Sing let me know. Also had a score at my building‘s book exchange this morning. I got a bag of books which nearly caused me to miss my tram. #green
