A Winter Mystery

Winter's Bone

Winter’s Bone

By: Daniel Woodrell

Genre: Fiction

Pages: 208

Published: 2010

Read: December

2 out of 5

I was shockingly disappointed in this book. It may have been I built up my anticipation too much, but I think it was actually the author’s writing style I couldn’t get into. It definitely had a grabbing beginning and plot; I just lost interest in the middle. The last 20 pages or so caught my attention again and I felt satisfied with the ending. My favorite part of the novel was a sideline story about Ree’s best friend, Gail. Even though I didn’t care for the book, I can see why others would enjoy it. The plot is fascinating and Ree is a very strong female character which I love to see in novels.  I am going to watch the movie and compare to see if indeed it was the writing and not story itself I didn’t enjoy.
