Plainsong
Plainsong | Kent Haruf
"Ambitious, but never seeming so, Kent Haruf reveals a whole community as he interweaves the stories of a pregnant high school girl, a lonely teacher, a pair of boys abandoned by their mother, and a couple of crusty bachelor farmers. From simple elements, Haruf achieves a novel of wisdom and grace--a narrative that builds in strength and feeling until, as in a choral chant, the voices in the book surround, transport, and lift the reader off the ground."-FROM THE CITATION FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARDFrom the Trade Paperback edition.

Gentle, quiet, and eloquently told, Plainsong is about ordinary people in a small town facing difficult choices in life. There‘s no plot twist or dramatic plot yet I found the story engaging and beautiful.

Graywacke I really enjoyed Our Souls at Night. I would like to read this too. 4mo

Another month of great choices that make it hard to pick a favorite. I decided to go with Plainsong as my monthly and bracket winner, due to its beautiful and simple story, and the high likelihood I‘ll read it again.
I hope July shapes up to be as good as the last two months.

There is something about the slow and even build of a Haruf novel that is so satisfying. It isn‘t an action-packed thriller but there still so much going on under the surface. Another beautiful story.

This book is like a gentle breeze on a summer‘s day. It leaves you with a deep seeded contentment that only the most special books can. Offering a window into the soul of small town America, I was mesmerised by the beautiful storytelling from the first page. This is a book that will stay with you long after you have carefully placed it on your bookshelf. To be read again multiple times in the future.

Quick book journal update on my attempt to scale #mountbr in 2022! I‘m on a quite strict book buying ban for another 45 days and trying to reduce my owned tbr mountain by 100 books in 2022. Here‘s where we are so far!

Reading through books I‘ve bought but failed to read helps me feel like I‘m earning back wasted money which is a nice feeling.

Hooked_on_books Good luck with your book reduction! It‘s a path I‘ve been trying to travel for years, and I finally found a method that works for me about 3 years ago. My goal was to reduce by 100 or more each year, but I haven‘t managed to get there. I have managed to reduce by over 50 for the past two years, so I call that a win! 9mo

I loved this book so much. It felt like a true great American novel, tender, expansive and managing to do so much without ever feeling pretentious or like it was trying too hard. I loved the simple, spare prose and how rich and subtle the characters were. The two old brothers‘ interactions with the pregnant high school girl made my heart ache. I loved this so much

Tamra It‘s a good one! It deserves a reread for me. 9mo

What a beautiful novel. Haruf has this way of making you care deeply about his characters; I‘m left imagining how the rest of their lives unfold. It starts out slow but draws you in completely and has a quiet sort of feel to it but with the drama of a small town and it‘s inhabitants. I do love a book set in rural America & would highly recommend this if you do too. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

jdiehr I've had this on my shelf for ages. Might have to move it up the TBR list 2y
vivastory I completely agree. I really need to read more Haruf as I loved this one. 2y

https://www.penguin.co.uk/articles/2020/november/speech-mark-fiction-disappearin...

Plainsong doesn't use speech marks. For that reason somebody in my bookclub decided to listen to an audiobook version. But can an audiobook convey that stylistic choice of the author and if not, does it matter?

Soubhiville I listen to a lot of audiobooks. I‘d say they make up half my reading, since I can listen while driving to work and while working. In some cases I can focus better on the audio, especially with nonfiction. I suppose in cases of punctuation or novels in verse you miss those details when not eyeball reading, but the story is the same either way. 2y
rwmg @Soubhiville I don't think I could do that. I have a very monotasking mind, especially when it comes to langauge. i am miserable if there are lots of conversations going on round me at the same time because I can't pick out and follow one. I used to be able to read while the TV was on but I've lost that ability as I got older. 2y

Mehso-so

I found the extreme plainness of the style rather affected for much of this book and it was only when the feud between Tom Guthrie and the Bowmans started to escalate and when Victoria decided to come back to Holt from Denver that I really got interested in the characters and the story. I spent much of the book wondering how the two narrative threads were going to link up, and even at the end I felt they hadn't really.

Highly #recommend! Plainsong is a quiet, endearing novel about life in a small town. It follows an oddball cast of characters over the course of a school year. Gotta love the McPheron brothers! Because of them, I am shelving this right next to A Man Called Ove. 💙

I absolutely want to read more by #KentHaruf. Anyone care to recommend which of his books I should read next? Any you particularly love?

Kent Haruf is one of my new favorite authors. This one also set in Eastern Colorado, about a pregnant girl taken in by two bachelor farmers and two boys abandoned by their mother. Simple and moving. Plainsong is the unisonous vocal music used in the Christian church from the earliest times.

Mission: I will go and find EVERY book written by this brilliant author and read them all. Picked this up off my shelf on a whim and literally did not put it down for 4 hours. (Ok, i did take a bathroom break twice and made myself a cup of tea...hence 2nd bathroom break) A heartbreaking yet hopeful story set in the small town of Holt, Colorado. Told in short chapters and sparse language, I was transfixed. 5 BIG stars and a box of tissues

Plainsong is one of those unforgettable books. I wasn‘t sure after reading the first few chapters if I really wanted to continue. But something about Kent Haruf‘s writing style reminded me of John Steinbeck (one of my all time favorites). So, I kept reading and up pops the McPheron brothers and I was instantly hooked. Their relationship with Victoria Roubideaux is something that I will never forget. This is a very special book in so many ways.

January 3, 2019— Still reading Stephenie Meyer‘s “Eclipse.” I hope to be finished with it by the end of today!

In the meanwhile, this was a book I finished prior to the new year. I loved how the author represents a diverse community through the stories of people with differing age, lifestyle, and circumstance. Definitely worth the read! 🙌
