I've always liked Wally Lamb, and this book didn't disappoint. I liked the main story and the book would have been much shorter if he'd stayed with that. There was a background historical ancestor narrative that frankly bored me so I skimmed most of that (gasp) so it made getting through a 700+ page book easier. Overall a pick :)

Mehso-so

This book is getting a so-so because there's a moose on the cover, otherwise it would be a pan. I hoped for an endearing story about this guy and his moose but no. Yep there's a moose, orphaned on page 1 by the totally unlikeable narrator. It's a rambling tale about a self absorbed dude living in the woods, avoiding life & exploiting all people/situations. Was hoping it would continue till the moose hit puberty and stomped him. ...lol #ilovemoose

Bookish.SAM Oh no! I come across this book everywhere and wonder if I should pick it up (also probably because of the moose on the cover)... maybe not (edited) 2y
TheCanuckReader I even saved it to read for a couple of years because I was afraid it was gonna be sad. It was just. ...bleh 2y

Mehso-so

I know this is not a popular opinion but this is a so -so for me. I liked the structure of the writing but find new mystery writers leave either too many or not enough breadcrumbs and stop with an ambiguous ending. There's also a lot of God-speak in this book and I'm flamingly unreligious so that was a turn off. She nailed the relationships on one street in a small town though and the 10 yr old girls were endearing..the adults..not so much. 3🌟

saresmoore This is a very nice edition, though! 2y
TheCanuckReader Tis beautiful. I had so much hope...lol. Also no sheep or goats in it. Bahhhhhh 2y

Beartown: A Novel | Fredrik Backman
post image
Pickpick

From a Canadian who is not obsessed with hockey, but watches during the Olympics and the Stanley Cup playoffs....loved this book more for it's portrayal of a small town and it's reaction to a crisis and events they hope will "put their town on the map". I grew up in a place just like this. Great writing/translation as usual. Must read ALL THE Beckman books! 4.5?

CouronneDhiver Maybe that's why I struggled with this one ... not connecting with the small town aspect. 🤔 2y
Blueberry Oh, maybe this book is for me. I was born in a very small town on the Minnesota-Canadian border AND I loved A Man Called Ove. 2y
Suet624 I wonder if Backman will ever write a bad novel. 2y
TheCanuckReader It's very small town... don't get me wrong, I loved my town but when a crisis happens it's hugely polarizing especially when everyone knows everyone 2y

This one gives an intimate look into a traditional post-Taliban Afghan family. There's a bit about books, but more about the bookseller. It taught me that I'd last about 1 min as a woman in a traditional Afghan family as I wouldn't take kindly to the treatment of women and would prob punch most men in this book in the head...including the bookseller. #notyourbiatch #respectmeorbitemedude

Just finished this LGBTQ romance/family saga. Great story and shows that we are more alike than we are different. It reminded me of why I don't normally read romance as some of the dialogue gets sappier (is that a word?) than I like and I'm not into detailed sex scenes no matter who the participants are,maybe I haven't read someone who does them well? Great diverse read a nd would love a sequel to know how everyone turned out. #LGBTQ #diversebooks

Been crazy busy lately and missing this oasis called Litsy. So glad to pop in tonight and need to stay! Spent tonight driving this cutie to her release site after a 6 wk stay with us after being hit by a car. Fly free little one! #owlsofLitsy #releaseskeepmesane #nslittens

Libby1 Beautiful. What great work you do. I hope you're able to visit us here more often. 💜 3y

TheCanuckReader Thanks @Libby1 ,I was slightly addicted to Litsy but got crazy busy...now I'm making it a priority to be back since you guys are my peeps! @drokka No I don't work with HFW, I am a wildlife vet and have my own wildlife rehab Centre in Nova Scotia...the Cobequid Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre. Been doing this since 2001 :) 3y

drokka That's fantastic! I lived in NS for 5 years and didn't know about any of the Centres until I got back to Ontario. There is so much wildlife there, I'm glad people like you do what you do. 3y
slhbooks Our Raptor Center (at the Univ of Minnesota) has a public program twice a year where they release the birds that have recovered. We love to go and see these birds fly free again. What wonderful work you do! 3y
Dolly I love owls. I try to record their calls every year. We have mostly great horned and barred. 3y
