I started a new book yesterday titled Gilead by Marilynne Robinson. So far it is excellent. I am most especially struck by the use of language. (Which, by the way, is my favorite thing to analyze in literature. I would call myself a grammar-freak.) I love the way the sentences flow together to make a very interesting thought. I would almost classify as stream-of-consciousness writing, but with excellent use of punctuation. I have found myself gladly sinking into the world of late 19th Century Kansas and Iowa as the Rev. Ames tells his young son his life story. Once again I am in a place that I would never have known about without this story.
I will make sure to post back in when I have finished the book. But so far it is good. And on the Would Read list, for sure!
