Beautiful, Simple, Storytelling
So many have complained in their reviews about Jayber Crow being boring, slow, pointless, and full of cuss words. I'm afraid they've all the missed the point of what good storytelling can consist of. I thoroughly enjoyed Berry's story from start to finish. No, it didn't finish with a bang, but it wasn't supposed to. Jayber Crow is simply a man telling his story in a thoughtful, and sometimes profound way. There is beautiful imagery that it revisited frequently throughout the telling of the story: the river, empty homesteads, the changing of the seasons. As you listen to the story you get a sense of the inexorable moving forward of life, and the most certain changes that come along the way.

Lovely
Wendell Berry has written a nearly perfect book that tracks the life of a man lived well and fully.
