Plainsong #2

Eventide by Kent Haruf


By: Kent Haruf

Genre:  Adult fiction

Pages: 320

Published: 2005

Read: August

5 out of 5

Haruf continues to write beautifully about simple life with simple people in a simple town. He has such a way with words that you feel as though they live in the same town and the characters are your neighbors.  Some of the stories are a continuation from Plainsong; others are new neighbors you will meet. Either way you will become friends or enemies, whichever you choose Haruf will provoke your emotions. My only criticism is that I wish Haruf included the chapter headings that he did in Plainsong, so you knew which character’s point-of-view that specific chapter was told. Overall, he once again did not leave me disappointed and I will be reading Benediction very soon.
