Gets so close to a fourth star it can smell the new paint job In fact the plot is totally 5 star the motivations and machinations of all the characters make complete sense and are a real heartbreaker The main character 16 year old Ree Dolly is great In the movie which I came across all of 4 years ago she s played by none other than Jennifer Lawrence in her first big role and the movie and
#JENNIFER BOTH KNOCKED ME FLAT ON #
both knocked me flat on back then It s a must see If any book was filmed xactly right it s thisn What nearly defeats this chunk of hick lit is Daniel Woodrell s prose style He thinks he s the new improved perfect blend of Annie Proulx William Faulkner and maybe ole Cormac M and some others like that He s Mcproulkner or sumpin Here s what I mean The world seemed huddled and hushed and her crunching steps cracked loud as ax whacks Little Arthur was a little man mix of swagger and tongue with a trailing history of deeds that vouched for his posture A picnic of words fell from Gail s mouth to be gathered around and savoured slowly Here Ree is given some real bad news There was a sound in Ree s head like a world of zippers zipping shut and a sudden tilt factor Seductive Surrender (Highland Heather Romancing a Scot, engagedvery place she looked The creek shifted heights in her yes and swayed overhead floppy as snapped string the houses beyond skinny shifted heights in her yes and swayed overhead floppy as snapped string the houses beyond skinny ribs and knotted together in bows the sky spun upright like a blue plate set on dge to dry And here s Ree being assaulted violently Ree felt her joints unglue become loose she was draining somehow draining to the dirt while black wings fling angles crossed her mind and there were mutters of beasts uncaged from women and she was sunk to a moaning place kicked into silence And later All her aches were joined as a chorus to sing pain throughout her flesh and thoughts I m sorry but this strongly reminds me of Doctor Johnson s famous advice to writers Read over your compositions and where ver you meet with a passage which you think is particularly fine strike it out Maybe it s a matter of taste but for me a lot of Mr Woodrell s prose above verges on parody it s hideously overwrought and self consciously gorgeous It strikes poses in very phrase It has the same relationship to the compelling communication of sense and motion that a catwalk model has the same relationship to the compelling communication of sense and The Deepest Sin emotion that a catwalk model has walking in a straight line About half of thentire short novel is given over to descriptions of the beautiful Ozarks Disappearing snow left the old tossed stones plain amidst the puny winter weeds and spreading muck Some stones were stacked two high and some lay in close clusters with stunted oak growing from the narrow spaces between Not a field or creek or a snowflake passes by without it s nailed to. The sheriff's deputy at the front door brings hard news to Ree Dolly Her father has skipped bail on charges that he ran a crystal meth lab and the Dollys will lose their house if he doesn't show up for his next court dateRee's father has disappeared before The Dolly clan has worked the shadowy side of the law for generations and arrests and attempts to avoid them are part of.
