Here is a reddish light over the trees by the lake It is starting to blowThis reflects well the starkness of the character how his life is as stripped down as the wordsPetterson s style grows appropriately breathless when painting a haying sceneAs the wire gradually unrolled it became asier but by then I was that much xhausted and there was suddenly an opposition to verything that was physical and I grew mad and did not want anyone there to see I was such a city boy particularly while Jon s mother was looking at me with that blinding blue gaze of hers I d make up my own mind when it would hurt and if it should show or not and I pushed the pain down into my body so my face would not gibe me away and with arms raised I unrolled the reel and the wire ran out until I came to the Trading Places: The Netherlandish Merchants in Early Modern Venice end of the meadow and there I put the reel down in the short stubble of the newly mown grass the wire taut all as calmly as I could and just as calmly straightened up and pushed my hands into my pockets and let my shoulders sink downThere are many references that add a feeling of substance and connection to the work references to Dickens Oedipus Maigret the River Styx Petterson likes to mirrorvents and images Being run off the road is used several times crossing the river Styx from one life to another several watery baptisms But while the imagery satisfies the thinness of Trond leaves one wanting something The only negative thing I can say or accurately am willing to say about this novel is that it begs to be read by the fireplace and not En plein coeur everybody has a fireplace I don t have a fireplace Early November It s nine o clock The titmice are banging against the window Sometimes they fly dizzily off after the impact other times they fall and lie struggling in the new snow until they can take off again I live here now in a small house in the farast of Norway A river flows into the lake It is not much of a river and it gets shallow in the summer but in the spring and autumn it runs briskly and there are trout in itI can just see it from my window once the birch leaves have fallenIt is here that Trond Sander finds the solitude the peace and uiet he s been longing for with Lyra his dog It is here as well that he comes to realize that with solitude comes reflection introspection In his case rumination of nearly seventy years to realize that with solitude comes reflection introspection In his case rumination of nearly seventy years lifetime of memories Some good some hauntingThe year he was fifteen an incident occurred that returns to him a friend s life forever changed and the aftermath affected them all Ripples of grief and guilt affect them both and their families draw ven closer together It is this incident that grief and guilt affect them both and their families draw ven closer together It is this incident that wormed its way back into his mind reminding him of that summer the summer he worked moving lumber along the riverSpare deliberate haunting prose moves this story along uietly with a sense of this "Man Seeking A Sense Of Peace With "seeking a sense of peace with past to accept the losses that come along with a life lived to come to terms with secrets affections withheld all of the injustices real or perceived And while the memories once belonged to the boy the man he has become shares this past these moments of reminiscence with the wisdom gained through the years That part of my life when I could turn the dreams to some use is behind me now I am not going to change anything any If I just concentrate I can walk into memory s store and find the right shelf with the right film and disappear into it and still feel in my body that ride through the forest with my fathe.

of a year old Norwegian man who retreats to the north woods to review his life and particularly a fateful summer in 1948 when he was 15 and sharing a cabin with his father for the last time The book in many ways reminds me of a palimpsest because at several turns it will reveal yet another critical story that underlies the ones that came before The novel opens with a tragedy that befalls the narrator s best friend in that long ago summer and it seems that will become the fulcrum of the plot but it turns out only to be a tangential part of the story Unbeknownst to the boy this vent will deeply affect his relationship with his father and it is only as time goes on that he will learn his father s full history and how his friend s crisis fits into that larger picture which includes the revelation that his father had been an operative for the Norwegian resistance during World War IIAlthough the book is steeped in melancholy it is also laced throughout with moments of joy and a deep appetite for life much of which is mbodied in stories of simple chores and heroic physical challenges in the deep woodsI m tempted to say that in the nd I was disappointed because this novel is just so Scandinavian particularly in the way the characters say almost nothing that reveals their deep feelings and motives to ach other so that the reader has to infer all of that from their actions whether noble or pettyBut this may be a universal story of how men particularly have trouble xpressing their feelings in words or PostgreSQL Server Programming - Second Edition even wanting to share thosemotions with the people they love most And frankly I Integrity Restored: Helping Catholic Families Win the Battle Against Pornography ended by feeling angry at the boy s fatherven though I can t The Taste of Night (Signs of the Zodiac, explain why without revealing a critical part of the plotOne of the ironies of Out Stealing Horses is that the narrator s favorite author is Dickens whoxplores his characters personalities in great detail and always resolves verything for the better at the nd of most of his novels Petterson does neither He suggests he sketches and he leaves us to infer the motives and deepest wellsprings of his characters livesAnd yet there is much to love about his writing and his storytelling At one point the narrator says that if you tell people some facts about your life they think they know you because they construct a story in their minds to flesh out those facts and yet they don t really have any idea who you are only you do deep inside yourself That passage not only pitomizes the character it serves as advice or a warning for readers who want to make sense of the people in this story This is a story of growth of a boy who becomes an adult in an isolated rural region of Norway close to the Swedish border in the course of one summerBut this is also a story of decline of an old man who revisits the countryside where he last saw his father in 1948 xpecting to capture the blinding light of indifferent nature the flashing clarity of unhurried memories the physical vigor that pumped up his young body than sixty years ago before the clock of his worn out life ticks outTwo stories and a single first person narrator at first separated by the unbr.

Idgeable abyss of time nd up converging in a tapestry of revelations and silences that bespeak of the invisible threads that weave fate and chance choice and serendipity togetherIn Petterson s world there is no place for far fetched coincidences verything that happens in the life of his characters is a direct result of their actions in a specific moment in time A family man falls in "Love With A Married Woman Who Shares His Political Ideals "with a married woman who shares his political ideals wartime when people got murdered if they were on the wrong side Five years later a boy on the brim of adulthood who idolatrizes his father discovers roticism betrayal and death all at once resulting in premature responsibility for actions that were beyond his controlAn abandoned son faces two forked paths that will determine the man he is going to become in a future seared by the incommensurable absence of his father Meanwhile the very same forest that saw him blossom with life in summertime witnesses the gradual decrease of his Hannah Montana: The Movie energy when the bucolic landscape is covered in snowdrift during his last winterThe power of this book remains in what is left unsaid in the minimalistic poetry of concentrated meaning in the slow moving pace that leaves one breathless wanting to absorb the magnetic pull ofvery disclosed thought be it of immense happiness or unbearable sorrowA number of recurrent sentences and imagery is used in different contexts to provide a delicate map of motifs that infuse the story with a cyclical undercurrent that recalls the passing seasons of the protagonist s life that is now setting in wintry stillness Out stealing horses is a weightless ode to letting go of versions we could have been to mbrace the truths that shaped the persons we are Petterson s clear sighted prose is a journey back in time to make peace with the past and reconcile the present to the intensity of silence and light which if rightly combined can produce the most harmonious soundMy first by this author it won t be the last What do we see when we look back over our lives Are we the hero of our own story Looking into that mirror can we really see ourselves or is our view doomed to be perpetually blocked offering maybe a Maigret image of only the backs of our heads A man 67 Trond lives alone in a small house by a lake in ast Norway and contemplates his past We travel back and forth between the present 1999 and 1948 when he was a fifteen year old living with his father in a

place The of that summer defined his life in many ways This is his coming of age story I was very much of two minds about this book For the first half maybe two thirds I loved it thought it might be a masterpiece There is a rich store of allusion here imagery that fills language that offers structure and beauty in support of its aims story telling craft that mostly worked very well But I found that the back third left me dry If I could I would have given it 35 starsThere are vents in the story that call for some drama in how Trond reacts yet he often seems incapable Maybe that was the author s intent I don t know but I found it unsatisfying Too many uestions were left up in the air for my comfort The book made me wonder though if the author s great gifts have been put to satisfying use in other works I was impressed with how Petterson modulated the pace and tone of his words I loved the sparse clipped sentences that open the book Early November It s nine o clock The titmice are banging against the windowT.
