Great Quote

"Home" by Marilynne Robinson

Have you ever read anything bt Marilynne Robinson? (I liked Housekeeping best.) I just finished the audio version of this one. All her books have more "thought" than action, though are pretty good. It says in the Amazon.com review that Jack is "one of the great characters in recent literature". In "Gilead", I got the impression that she wanted to write one kind of novel, but fell in love with the Jack character -- and this book further explores his life. I wouldn't call it "great". Still recommended, though not my highest rating.
