Jayber Crow

41EDQ203oQLI started Jayber Crow by Wendall Berry several years ago on the advice of my husband who really liked it. I just couldn’t get through it at the time. It was too slow. However, since he rarely recommends books to me (and after some years of nagging), I picked it up again as an audio book. And, while I didn’t love it, it was a good listen. The writing was excellent but the pace of the story was very slow. Jayber had compelling thoughts about all kinds of things and the narrator was pleasant to listen to. If you like quiet, thoughtful, probing books, this is one for you. I must warn you, however, that it’s a little depressing and quite sad at the end.
