Ust also decide whether or not to stay on the farm or seek employment in the outside wor. This year has been a series of leisurely reads for me I d have to say Farmer is the best read of 2017 for me The books I ve read this year have simply been enjoyable Farmer is the first book that really made me stare at the ceiling for 5 minutes after finishing sit up slowly place my hands over my eyes and really feel this sense of profound calm confusion about life His lack of closure is of the same strategy as William Faulkner but some how I felt settled after ambling over the ending for a few hoursJim Harrison often writes about women with a careless tone If you are easily offended by the thoughts heterosexuals have about their loved ones don t read Jim Harrison He doesn t care about your fragile opinions Joseph treats Rosealee unfairly and he discusses this mistreatment over and over again These conversations Joseph has are similar to the ones I have in my head so naturally the stream of consciousness Joseph employs to try and wrap his head around reality really resonated with meHarrison makes this loose comparison between the hunt of a woman that a man can really love and the hunt of a wolf Both creatures are hopelessly intelligent and of course men struggle with this intelligence as men are often obtuse This obtuseness is a refreshing read for someone such as myself who specializes in wanting one specific type of woman when really there are multiple palatable types
