The writing is gorgeous and precise and sly and so unexpectedly beautiful and logical and funny and emotional. It reads differently than the books I'm used to reading. There's no faux suspense. There's no tricks or shock value. It's just a beautiful story. It took me a little while to get completely invested. I'd say I read the first 30 pages slowly, and then the remainder all at once of the title story. I know this isn't a great book review, but just wanted to add my opinion.
I'm a 26 year old female who works in the tech industry.
My one fishing experience was when I caught a fish with my grandpa when I was 7 and it was bleeding and I cried for two days. I loved this book. Don't discount it because it's about fishing. It is beautiful and perfect, or maybe I should say "more perfect.
This is one of my all time favorite books. Certainly in the category of novellas - as has been noted by better more able reviewers than me. I give it to others as gifts often, and as I inscribe it, I tell the recipient that: I mostly give this book to men, young men. Preferably young men with brothers. I think young men with brothers will get the most out of it.
Others may read it and disagree with MY target 'gift' audience. You are free to read the book and give it to who YOU think best!

I've read many reviews and all about Noman Maclean. His book s affect me deeply and I can get moved just by recalling the storyline - which never leaves me because of its similarities to my own personal experience. Spoiler Alert: It's mostly about the regrets we all will feel one day for not taking action to SAVE someone dear to us who we know needs saving - but that we also know we cannot save.
Who we know we are helpless to save. I've had that in my life, as have many others. Perhaps it's a sibling who's a substance abuser.
Or a gambler. A ne'er do well.

Read this book and you will be moved to understand that your personal inadequacies in the face of such terrible loss was part of a larger spiritual plan. I watched the movie a long time ago and recently decided to read the book on the airplane.
It's a good thing I was on the plane as a captive audience because things plod along very very slowly as a result of some very technical terms used in fishing. I've never caught a fish. I buy them at the grocery store. It's okay though because there's a story woven into even this technical talk - a story about the person catching the fish.
It picks up along the way and fairly soon you realize you're reading an incredible bit of literature - made more incredible by the fact that it's true. It's poetic. I felt warm and at times, even felt the sun warming my back as if I was the standing in the river - fishing.
and other stories.
This is a well-written, thought-provoking journey into the Montana landscape and the minds and hearts of the Maclean family. Norm tells about his father, brother Paul and mother as they live close to rivers. The men spend endless hours fly-fishing and developing its art form.
The father is a minister, the mom, a strong support system and his brother Paul baffles them all. He seems to have his own set way of seeing the world and his tragic death leaves them all pondering how they could have helped him or if they could have helped him make better choices.
Seeing the movie first left me with a few spoilers, but the fine writing of Norman Maclean made the second time around just as intriguing!
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This is not a book one easily puts down. Norman Maclean wrote about what he loved, and his love showed in what he wrote.
Probably aren't too many people reading this review that haven't seen the movie "A River Runs Through It. Unfortunately for me, it took me a while to shed the image of Brad Pitt as Paul. Really wished I hadn't watched the movie so many years ago before reading the book.
As the book was much better, and though Brad Pitt played the part well, I feel my imagination was held back just a bit in letting Paul's character develop fully as I read the novella. Still, my wife had a hard time getting me to the dinner table once I started reading.
Years ago a pastor friend recommended the story to me, and I think it was the best gift he ever gave me. Forest Service and the men who worked the woods. In telling the story you get a feel for Montana almost a hundred years ago, but that is true of all the stories in this book. It was a Montana full of loggers, loose women, cowboys and card games. When at the end of the story Norman ends up nursing back his health in the Hamilton whorehouse, where better?
The door on that house shuts behind it tales of a misspent youth in the wilds of a Montana that was still young itself. See all reviews.
