Revisiting a few good novels
In preparation for next week's WIFYR conference, I've been revisiting a couple of novels I plan to discuss in class--Carol Williams' THE CHOSEN ONE and Matt Kirby's ICEFALL. I recommend both without reservation. I'm particularly taken with Matt's book right now. I think it's just so very good on so many levels. I like the story and the characters, yes. But what impresses me most is Matt's prose. It's gorgeous. And yet it doesn't draw undue attention to itself. That is a much harder thing to pull off than one might suspect. And now. Switching gears. I just want to say something. Something I have said here before, which is this: thank you, Blog Readers, for your comments and your visits. I do not take you for granted. Or granite. Which is what we used to say in Utah County before we got all sophisticated.
