[REVIEW] Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx
Brokeback Mountain - Annie Proulx

A sad, heartbreaking story with vivid imagery. My poor little heart.

 

The narrator was fantastic and his different tones of voice for Ennis and Jack made me fall for the characters even more. Now I just need to nurse my sadness.

Brokeback Mountain
Brokeback Mountain - Annie Proulx This book is super short and straight to the point. No floweriness and fillers. I was shocked by how much it made me feel with just these few pages. The way it's delivered makes it so real.

Annie Proulx need to let it go as readers would come to their own conclusion anyway
Brokeback Mountain - Annie Proulx

Read this article, "Annie Proulx regrets writing Brokeback Mountain? She needs to let it go" and I agreed with the conclusion that she has to get it over herself.

Once a book is written, how it is being read or interpreted or being remembered, it is really up to the readers. It might not be the writer intend that it turned into a tragic romantic story between gay men, but that would be all the gay readers like to see it. So be it. 

 

Who wouldn't want a nice ending, giving us the warm and cozy feeling that love wins in the end.

 

So, let it go and there is no regret getting all that cash from the book sales and movie deal.

Brokeback Mountain
Brokeback Mountain - Annie Proulx Beau, simple, sans fioritures, très brut à l'image des deux protagonistes. Une histoire d'amour qui va au delà de l'orientation sexuelle, touchante et triste à la fois.

Brokeback Mountain
Brokeback Mountain - Annie Proulx

Brokeback Mountain
Hardcover, 55 pages
Published November 1st 2005 by Scribner Book Company (first published 1997)
ISBN     0743275306 (ISBN13: 9780743275309)



Annie Proulx's Brokeback Mountain is a solid, well written short story of 2 gay cowboys meeting for the first time herding sheep together one summer. Proulx writes simply, making Brokeback Mountain an easy read, while at the same time offers, very effectively, a strong plot that kept me interested. Proulx doesn't make this a gay sex story; there are few references to sex, but it's more about what these 2 men realize what they want out of the relationship over the course of 20+ years, Dealing with what each feels is socially acceptable, what each acknowledge what he feels is right for himself.

Brokeback Mountain is a great quick read. I wish I picked it up sooner than I had.
