In 1997, Charles Frazier’s debut novel Cold Mountain made publishing history when it sailed to the top of The New York Times best-seller list for sixty-one weeks, won numerous literary awards, including the National Book Award, and went on to sell over three million copies. Now, the beloved American epic returns, reissued by Grove Press to coincide with the publication of Frazier’s eagerly-anticipated second novel, Thirteen Moons. Sorely wounded and fatally disillusioned in the fighting at Petersburg, a Confederate soldier named Inman decides to walk back to his home in the Blue Ridge mountains to Ada, the woman he loves. His trek across the disintegrating South brings him into intimate and sometimes lethal converse with slaves and marauders, bounty hunters and witches, both helpful and malign. At the same time, the intrepid Ada is trying to revive her father’s derelict farm and learning to survive in a world where the old certainties have been swept away. As it interweaves their stories, Cold Mountain asserts itself as an authentic odyssey, hugely powerful, majestically lovely, and keenly moving.

2.0 Cold Mountain
This has ambitions to be an American Odyssey, telling the tale of a Confederate soldier, Inman, who travels to return to his love Ada at Cold Mountain. I admit there's just about no literary affectation I hate more than the fashion a la Cormac McCarthy to omit quotation marks. Frazier, when he marks...

Had to read this book (and watch the movie) for an course on North Carolina History. Just glad that I finally finished it because it was long and dull and I just don't care.
