It was a struggle for me to finish the book. If it hadn‘t been a book club pick, it is not a book I would have read or finished. I just didn‘t “get it.” A talking crow and other magical elements had me guessing what direction this book was going in. The author did however create a great sense of community and showed how supportive the members in town were for each other. I won‘t be recommending this book to others.

Mehso-so

My book club read Mink River this month. Doyle‘s writing style is a bit different than I‘m used to and it took me awhile to get used to it. I enjoyed the magical realism and felt it really connected with the PNW culture (specifically the tribal influence). While I wouldn‘t recommend this book to most of my friends, I do have a few who might enjoy it. I listened to it on Audible...just wait for the creepy crow.

This is so so so good. Delightful writing, amazing evocation of the Pacific Northwest, wonderful characters. This should be required reading for everyone in the Pacific Northwest.

And finally, books bought on vacation .

8leagueboot I love buying local interest or novels with the local setting when I travel! 2y
ReadingEnvy Me too! One of these starts out on Orcas Island and the character moves to Alaska. I bought it on Orcas Island and had just returned from Alaska so it was spot on!! 2y

So hard to get book spines in the shadow to show when you want the background in there but hello I'm in Astoria and we found a cute bookshop. I had to get the Doyle because just yesterday I said to my husband, "John Irving should write about some of these small Oregon towns," and that seems to be what Doyle's book could be!

Pogue Mink River is a good book. 2y
Soubhiville Isn‘t that where the Goonies were? Are you visiting those sights? 2y

1) Just a few pages in and I am not sure what I think. The story is very scattered so far.
2) Heading home this afternoon after spending a great weekend with my dad and my daughter. The weather at the north Oregon coast has been amazing this weekend.
3) A steak with a big salad.

Best part of my (not-so) #manicmonday is a $3.50 #bookhaul. Each of these books was Litten recommended and what is a three day weekend without book shopping? #awesomeautumnbooks

I love the way Brian Doyle draws his characters. I feel like I know these people. My sister-in-law calls this the quintessential Oregon book.

Viji I looked at this book when we were at Powell's a few days ago and almost bought it! 2y
AAdamson Portland! My hometown! I'm in Washington, now, but we were at Powell's a couple weeks ago when we were down. I loved Mink River, but I love The Plover even more. It's not necessary to read Mink River first, but it gives you a flavor of the place and Declan, the main character in The Plover. 2y
