Best Book I've Ever Read - Even Better than Gone With the Wind!

There are these rare books that a person will read over and over because the characters become a true part of that person's lives. This is one of those books. I have probably read this book 20 times yet I glean something new from it each time. I can perhaps feel the prairie wind more strongly in my face or better understand Lori's pain as she is tortured by her kidnappers. Oh, there are so many little nuances that make this book the best book ever written.

Yes, the mini series is truly wonderful. It is my favorite movie just as this is my favorite book. And yet, that production doesn't hold a candle to the book. The thought processes of the charactrs just can't be captured in a movie, and it is those thought processes that make this book truly great. Because while we have two main characters and numerous primary supporting characters, McMurtury is able to concisely yet with perfection allow every character in this book be a real character either by their actions or through their thougts. Since the movie can not capture much of these thoughts, a great deal of the beauty of the work is lost.

The story is simple enough - it is a story of a journey - and yet it is more than that for it is not just the story of a physical journey, but a story of individual journeys the characters take to experience their own growth. It is a story of enlightenment. And the reader closes the book at the end feeling completely enlightened and ready to start the journey again for another enlightenment lesson.
