    Deep, powerful, realistic

    I just finished reading In High Places. Honestly, I had a tough time getting into it because of the unfamiliar rock-climbing events (which Morrisey did a great job of explaining, I'm just a little dense). However, at one point, I no longer wanted to put the book down. And then, I stopped putting the book down, ignoring my tasks and sleep to finish the story.
    Some books are tough to define why they make a powerful impact on your heart, and this is one of them. The story was well-told, meaning for me that it was realistic with solid characterization and plot cruising along with hills, valleys, twists and turns, smashing the things I presumed would happen. The father-son relationship was told as fathers and sons usually relate to each other. Morrisey did not feminize the men's relationship in order to tell what lesser writers would mistakenly feel would make a more complete story. What he achieved was a portrayal of a relationship infused with nuance and uncertainty--like real life. It was so vivid I retain many images from the story and expect to run into the characters; to see them climbing cliffs nearby.
    I recommend this to any rock climber, to any father or son struggling to have a relationship with the other, and anyone else wanting a deep, powerful, realistic read.
