Comments Jesse's Ghost: A Novel

  1. A powerful novel about love and regret It is spare like an ecosystem is spare nothing can be added or removed without upsetting the balance A reviewer said that this is a man s book but I don t agree any than I think Jane Austen s novels are women s books There are certainly things I can t relate directly to though I think because of class and culture than gender but we ve all loved, done things we regretted, felt loss And Bergon conveys these things, and the characters that experience them, wi [...]


  2.

  3. This book was different than what I thought it was going to be I enjoyed this book on multiple fronts A word of caution I would add is that this is def a guys book I could see some women panning it for the language and subject matter It can be pretty crass in its descriptors at times.

  5. Very good Tough, tough people growing up just miles from where I did but in a different world Descriptions of farming life in the Valley are very vivid.
