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 yea

New York: Vintage, 2003-11-25. Trade Paperback. Good. 449 pages; spine creasing, edge wear; Winner of the 1997 National Book Award A "New York Times" and "Globe and Mail "Notable Book of the Year Charles Frazier has created a masterpiece that is at once an enthralling adventure, a stirring love story, and a luminous evocation of a vanished land, a place where savagery coexists with splendour and human beings contend with the inhuman solitude of the wilderness. Sorely wounded and fatally disillusioned in the fighting at Petersburg, Inman, a Confederate soldier, decides to walk back to his home in the Blue Ridge mountains and to Ada, the woman he loved there years before. His trek across the disintegrating South brings him into intimate and sometimes lethal converse with slaves and marauders, bounty hunters and witches, both helpful and malign. At the same time, the intrepid Ada is trying to revive her father's derelict farm and learning to survive in a world where the old certainties have been swept away.As it interweaves their stories, "Cold Mountain" asserts itself as an authentic odyssey, hugely powerful, majestically lovely, and keenly moving., Vintage, 2003-11-25

Details of the book
Cold Mountain
Author:

Frazier, Charles

Title:

Cold Mountain

ISBN:

This unabridged audio version of Cold Mountain, read by author Charles Frazier, deserves at least as much acclaim as the bestselling print edition, which won the National Book Award. The tale chronicles a Confederate army deserter's search for home and love in the last days of the Civil War.

Much has been made of the story's homage to The Odyssey, the origins of which are found in an oral tradition. One can't help but hear echoes of Homer when listening to Frazier's soft, deliberate voice give life to his lyrical writing and to his understated, yet convincing rendering of the overwhelming events of war. Both Frazier's prose and reading are leisurely, recalling a slow foot pace. His delivery is uniquely suited to Innman's arduous, adventure-filled walk toward home and to the possibility of a reunion with Ada, the woman he loves. The author's reading does equal justice to Ada, who is being transformed by her struggle for survival on her father's farm. There is precious little dialogue, and Frazier makes no effort at acting out the characters.

One small irritation in the production is a beeping noise at the end of each side. Another minor complaint is that the tapes don't have individual boxes, which was perhaps an attempt to make the overall package appear more booklike. The recording does, however, make deft use of two brief musical interludes. In a subtle twist, the fiddle music that opens the first cassette, when repeated as an accompaniment to the epilogue, carries a bittersweet and unexpected resonance. By all means, forgive Random House Audio the tiny glitches, pass over that slender abridged version, and take home the real thing. This audiocassette is a journey that will leave few listeners unchanged by the experience. (Running time: 14.5 hours, 12 cassettes) --Naomi J. Cohn
