Cold Mountain - Paperback

2003, ISBN: 9781400077823

ID: 193177675

New York U. S. A.: Vintage. New 2003. Softcover. Marfree, acidfree later prtg, movie tie-in as shown --Gift Qual; no names, not marked-in, underscored, clearance or discard. Mails from NYC usually within 12 hours. ; Vintage Contemporaries; 7.8 x 5.2 x 1.1 inches; 448 pages; \nOnline Rev: A writer with enormous talent for prose and storytelling, August 6, 2002 \nBy Joanna Daneman (Middletown, DE USA) -\nI received "Cold Mountain" as a gift (Thanks, MOM! ) and didn't really know anything about the book. So I decided to try a sort of test I do on fiction--I opened the book at random and read a sample of the prose to get a feel for the style. Here's what I read: \n>>One of the things Inman marked as a comfort was that he could put a name to the brightest star in Orion. He had shared that fact with a Tennessee boy on the night after Fredricksburg....\n\nBefore them was the battlefield falling away to the town and the river. The land lay bleak as nightmare and seemed to have been recast to fit a new and horrible model, all littered with bodies and churned up by artillery. Hell's newground, one man had called it. To turn his mind from such a place that night, Inman had looked toward Orion and said the name he know. The Tennessee boy had peered up at the star so indicated and said, How do you know its name is Rigel? \n--I read it in a book, Inman said. \n--Then that's just a name we give it, the boy said. It ain't God's name. \nInman had though on the issue a minute and then said, How would you ever come to know God's name for that star? \n--You wouldn't, He holds it close, the boy said. It's a thing you'll never know. It's a lesson that sometimes we're meant to settle for ignorance. <<\n\nWithin seconds I was totally drawn in to the interaction of the characters and at the same time my jaw was dropping open because the prose style was so wonderful. This debut novel of Charles Frazier is amazing. \n\nHOWEVER...if you expect this to be a Civil War novel, complete with battles, or the machinations of frothy Southern Belles, you will be sadly disappointed. So don't read "Cold Mountain" for what it is not. It is really about journeys through trials, both external and internal. The main character Inman is wounded in a Civil War battle. His wound should have been mortal, but wasn't. He begins a long walk back to his home in the mountains of North Carolina, not only to avoid being drawn back into the horrors of the war but also to find his soul again, wounded as deeply by what he saw as by the ball that gashed his neck. \n\nHe's also coming back to Ada, who is traveling her own journey from a life of gentility and refusal to face reality, to scraping a survival living on her amateurishly managed farm. Her savior is Ruby, a woman whose raw drive and will to survive floats the hopeless Ada along in her inexorable wake. \n\nThe story of the three characters (Ada, Ruby and Inman) is woven so skillfully that I found it almost impossible to put the book down. But I forced myself to read it in segments because I didn't want to miss savoring the exquisite prose. This is the best novel I've read in years. Don't miss it. ., Vintage, 2003
