    Description

    From the author of Snow Falling on Cedars comes this best-selling novel about a dying man’s final journey through a landscape that has always sustained him and provided him with hope and challenges.

    When he discovers that he has terminal cancer, retired heart surgeon Ben Givens refuses to simply sit back and wait. Instead he takes his two beloved dogs and goes on a last hunt, determined to end his life on his own terms. But as the people he meets and the memories over which he lingers remind him of the mystery of life’s endurance, his trek into the American West becomes much more than a final journey.

    Masterpiece

    A full-bodied novel, haunting and true. A very emotional and memorable literature.

    Very beautiful

    Sad but very beautiful. A bit slow moving, but well-narrated enough to get you through the less compelling parts. David Guterson uses gorgeous language, even when the subject matter is hard-going.

    Great premise, too short and missed opportunity

    After reading Snow Falling on Cedars, I thought his would be as wonderful, and it was all the way up to the middle where it ended suddenly. It's as if the author got distracted by something else and just decided to end this without the depth it deserved.

    The Autumn of Life

    This was recommended to me from a Hospice resident. I thought it was a wonderful adventure and a very human story.

    Beautiful. Evocative.

    David Guterson is a master storyteller. Paints a picture with words like no other. This book was narrated perfectly.

    Sometimes Your Best Intentions Don’t Materialize

    A Seattle Wenatchee area story which I thoroughly enjoyed. I got this book because my brother recently died from pancreatic cancer and I wanted to explore narrative with similar life choices. Great delivery and story. Sometimes your goals don’t end up the way you had originally planned. Sometimes it’s not all just about you, but others. Ending was a little rushed though.

    Don’t let the suicide theme turn you away.

    This novel is remarkably filled with the joy of life. Beautifully and carefully written and filled with the sense of place and identity, Guterson’s novel pulls the everyday into some golden light before the readers’s eyes. I am so glad I found this book.
