Hannah CoulterHannah Coulter by Wendell Berry
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

2.5 stars
I was disappointed. Novel dragged, characters nondescript, story boring. Too much lamenting and reminiscing for my taste. Difficulties, sacrifices, disappointments, and regrets---we all live in one way or another and I don't have to read about it to know it's true. There was nothing extraordinary about the story, no depth to the characters, no enlightenment in the the solutions to their predicament. Near the end of the book when Hannah began to talk about her children and their lives I started to enjoy the book much more. I think this is a book people either love (most reviewers) or hate. I keep try to enjoy Wendell Berry and end up disappointed.
