    Good Read

    I enjoyed reading this book. The book is portioned into sections about various characters and happenings in the small town. The characters were very delightful as they were introduced. I especially enjoyed the Chinese doctor! The ending was a bit disappointing, but by then, the book had already done it's work. I don't really mind the ending, the strength lies in it's characters and happenings.

    mosher is delightful

    The Fall of the Year was pure pleasure and enjoyment. Mosher spins a yarn of small town trials and tribulations of rural life in northern Vermont. He has an obvious love for nature and the outdoors and this novel has Mosher's fluid desciptve prose of the beauty of the North Kingdom. This is skillfully woven amongst a cast of colorful local characters, a wacky plot that contains a mystery and a love story, and a tone of humor that makes for an overall heartwarming and delightful read.

    A good way to fill an otherwise empty afternoon

    This is my first read of anything by Howard Frank Mosher. He appears to be an extremely capable writer, for he had me turning pages as quickly as I could. Unfortunately, those pages were being turned in my vain hope of finding a common thread through what essentially was several disjointed character studies. I found the plot to be water-thin and, in the last three chapters, frighteningly predictable. The characters themselves were sympathetically painted, as was the Vermont backdrop; no one can say Mosher doesn't have an excellent eye and ear for landscape and dialogue. The book would have made a far better collection of short stories. Regardless, it was an entertaining afternoon spent reading the book, albeit somewhat disappointing by the time it came time to close its covers.
