Kent Haruf passed away in 2014. His body of work is small, but so very deep and satisfying. I have read 2 of his 5 novels and will be truly sad when I read the last one. I may have to hold off a bit, just like I have waited years to read For Whom the Bell Tolls—my last Hemingway book to read. I guess I can start over again, but it will be sad to turn that last page on these writers.

Like Hemingway, Haruf is distinctly American and of a particular generation. A slower time when people were both better and worse. Certainly they were more individualistic. Today, with all the social media and instant news (almost simultaneous but not consistent in content) we are so current in our reception and perception of events that we are creating competing sets of hive minds. Not so here. People are alone with their thoughts and their perceptions are personal and individual. They reject and fight against the right of society at large to judge them and are better for it. Seeming opposites find empathetic union can bring small joys and a new sense of belonging. People stand up for those that they care about, not caring about whether anyone else feels that they are right or wrong.

Evensong is a collection of several simple storylines that converge at times to create a complete experience. Even though it is hardly a thriller in format, I found myself burning through the pages because the stories and, even more, the characters were just so interesting. I was completely captivated by this short novel. I could read it again right now and still enjoy it. The characters felt so real. I was so invested. There are very few writers who are capable of creation at this level.

Oh my goodness! What a wonderful way to start a new year! Kent Haruf tells a wonderful story of transformation, coming of age, and love! I was horrified, terrified, laughed out loud and cried tears of joy and sorrow. What more could one ask for? Absolutely marvelous characters? The novel has those as well. It is a must read! ( )

Although this book got an award, it felt lacking to me. The author does a nice job with his descriptions of small town life, showing how different characters react to what life gives them. Victoria as the pregnant girl, lives with 2 unmarried guys who are super quiet but caring. The father, Guthrie a high school teacher with principles concerning earning a grade, has a rough life with a emotional sick deserted wife while raising 2 boys. The 2 boys, Ike and Bobby, learn about cruelties of life by themselves although the father tries. The guidance teacher, Mrs. Jones, is underdeveloped as a character although she is the one who ties them all together. The book ends with the feeling that you need to read the sequel to feel truly satisfied about these characters. ( )

Not very good, though I know a lot of people really like this book. I liked where it took place as my husband is from Northeastern Colorado and we could tell this author had lived out there. Too depressing for me. ( )

I had read a lot of recommendations for this author on Goodreads, and I did enjoy the book. The story involves the residents of a small town in Colorado in what we Texans refer to as cow country. Kent Haruf's story focus more on the description of the residents daily lives than on action, as their lives revolve around the small dramas of relationships changing, children growing up, and the passing cycle of birth and death. Its his ability to control the story that makes it enjoyable as the changes are the norm and nothing too disturbing ever happens except young people learning that there are people in the world that they cannot put their trust in.
