I like this series but this is only the 2nd one I'm reading

There was a review from the Boston Globe on the cover of my copy that said, "Reading this is an experience to be treasured." I agree that reading it was definitely an experience, but I'm not so sure that I will treasure it. Stegner's writing is of course beautiful, his storytelling masterful, but this book evoked a lot of unexpected and unpleasant feelings and I just hadn't been prepared to squirm. Also, I think he expects us as the reader to sympathize with one particular character over the other in the end, and I truly did not. I really disagreed with the conclusions that were drawn and that left me feeling unsatisfied. Overall I'm glad I read it for the experience and for the reflecting it has led me to do. And I have to admit I find it fascinating that a book can be simultaneously engrossing and dull. That takes some work. Also admirable is the way that Stegner is able to give voice to such diverse characters. I especially enjoyed his Victorian women. They were fun!* *at times
