    Cold Mountain is quite possibly the most beautiful book that I ve ever read It s not for the faint of heart, however, as it s time consuming and requires a great deal of patience as Frazier takes his time with his descriptions of the landscape and the people as Inman, a soldier broken in spirit by the futility and waste of the Civil War, decides to walk home to Ada and his beloved Cold Mountain That is not to say t

    Considering the widespread acclaim this book and its subsequent film adaptation have received, I m reluctant to write a negative review Still, a dissenting opinion at least makes for an interesting read This was absolutely the most boring book I have ever read It took me about a year to finish it, because every time I tried to pick it up, day or night, I was asleep in minutes Though the descriptions of the picturesque

    Be strong, saith my heart I am a soldier I have seen worse sights than thisHomer, The OdysseyHaving recently read The Odyssey, I was prompted by Goodreads friend, JulieGrippo, to go on this journey namely, Homer s epic voyage transposed to the terrain of 19th century North America.Inman not as heroic as Odysseus , an army deserter wounded in the American Civil War, faces a treacherous, interminable journey home to his lo

    Did not like it Although it has an interesting structure and pretext, it is so intellectualized that it is hard to care about the characters at all It seems like Frazier isinterested in showing off than in writing a gripping work of fiction.

    The best way I could find to describe the book is the American Civil War version of the Odyssey, with Inman as the wandering hero trying to find his way back home to the North Carolina Appallachians, and Ada as his Penelope tending the home fires This is an oversimplification, but the epic scope is there, the perilous journey, the oddball characters met on the road, the mystical elements of prophecy, cursed fate, faithful love

    You ve probably seen the movie made from this book.It was a fine movie It won Oscars.But it cannot begin to capture the truly spectacular parts of this story because they are not the surface level narratives that make it onto the big screen.Before you can truly appreciate the quality of this book, you need to be familiar with at least Homer s Odyssey, Dante s Inferno, and parts of the Bible You need to be on guard for a depth of sym

    How long would you wait for your lover, if you knew not whether they were alive, and you yourself had changed almost beyond recognition This is a beautiful, understated, unsentimental Odyssey of quiet longing, endurance, and transformation This journey will be the axle of my life. Inman s journey is across hundreds of dangerous miles, fleeing war and trying to get to where his love lives, four years after they parted She had made her w

    Stunning This book is the perfect example of timing being everything I tried to read this book when it was first released and I don t think I got passed the first 25 pages I tried again after I saw the movie with the same outcome Fast forward to 2016, the book obviously hasns t changed but I am a completely different reader and I LOVED this book I m pretty generous with 5 star reviews but I don t add many books to my favorites shelf which

    Is it long Yes Does it sometimes take entire paragraphs or chapters to describe the scope of the landscape Yes Is it entirely worth it Yes This book is best described as an epicfor those that felt it was too long or boring, have you ever read The Odyssey The comparison is made for a reason This is not a book you take to the beach and read on vacationthis is a book you pick up on a rainy day when you call in sick in the middle of the week Thi
