Grieviously OverwrittenThe movie version, which is so successful at coveying the landscape, the weather, the family dynamics, and the threat, reveals just how self-indulgently the novel is written. So much pseudo poetry, so many words when a few of the right ones would work. Slogging through the clotted prose is unrewarding work. Jus' sayin'.
