Review: THE COVE by Ron Rash

A couple of WWI Reading Challenge in 2012 participants have read and reviewed The Cove by Ron Rash.  Check out what they had to say.

Layers of Thought said:

With a style that is reminiscent of some of my favorite classic American authors such as Willa Cather and John Steinbeck, the author gives the reader a feel for a rural setting within the US where one can experience the daily life of the people detailed within the story.

Here’s a snippet from Lit and Life:

Rash never loses control of his large cast and when their diverse paths begin to come together, it feels natural. His characters are both astounding and utterly ordinary and believable. Rash masterfully addresses small town prejudices, patriotism and propaganda, and hope against all odds. The book has it’s flaws, to be sure. Some characters could have been developed more, others less.
