I am haunted by waters."
- A River Runs Through It
I just finished reading A River Runs Through It and it was inevitably lovely. I don't know why i avoided it for so long. If you can get past the brain spasms each time Norman Maclean bursts into detailed accounts of fishing techniques, you'll find a big thumping heart underneath. Quite possibly a fish heart, but a heart nonetheless. It's actually great to read a book that doesn't need to thrill or amuse or do anything in particular, it just needs told and this is one i'm very glad i was.
"It is one of those books you want to read aloud, following people around to do it..." - Joe Rogaly
I want to go fishing and live in the country until there's no country left. Yup.
