A Book to Enjoy
Sometimes when I read, it's just a story that is entertaining. In the case of Plainsong by Kent Haruf, I found myself thinking about the story and wanting to know more about the characters. It's a story about real people, who aren't pretty and rich, they have real problems in a small town. Unlike stories that have nice neat endings, this story does not clean up all of the conflicts. I liked this about the book because it made the story true to life. Do we ever have all our problems solved at one time?
I can tell that I enjoyed the book since I took my time to read it and when I got tired last night, I put it down.
