Winter's Bone Daniel Woodrell read online review & book description:

Daniel Woodrell's modern classic is an unforgettable tale of desperation and courage that inspired the award-winning film starring Jennifer Lawrence. 

Ree Dolly's father has skipped bail on charges that he ran a crystal meth lab, and the Dollys will lose their house if he doesn't show up for his next court date. With two young brothers depending on her, 16-year-old Ree knows she has to bring her father back, dead or alive. Living in the harsh poverty of the Ozarks, Ree learns quickly that asking questions of the rough Dolly clan can be a fatal mistake. But, as an unsettling revelation lurks, Ree discovers unforeseen depths in herself and in a family network that protects its own at any cost.

"The lineage from Faulkner to Woodrell runs as deep and true as an Ozark stream in this book...his most profound and haunting yet." -- Los Angeles Times Book Review

  • Solid story

    It was good! Violent, raw, drug induced chaos of a story. It's a chick flick for drug addicts who have multiple mug shots in police records.

    Great overall plot and an ending you won't see coming. Although I wish he could make his books a little longer and deeper, when he spins a description of a place, his less is more style descriptive pros is anything but boring.

    I read this novel after reading Tomato Red because it was just that incredible. I will continue to read anything this author writes. So moving and thought-provoking. No chick flicks here. Gives anyone pause...

    I like this book, although the author didn't really have to mention the heroine's long legs so many times! The ending keeps you guessing and wondering.
  • Cold Cruel World

    Winter's Bone was all gristle and sinew and warm girl flesh in a cold cruel world!

    I liked the film better because it captured the settings and characters better than the book. Rarely the movie exceeds the book, and in this case, it does. Still, a very flavourful book about a part of our americana.

    I enjoyed this book. Once I got into e characters. I couldn't put it down. The style of the writing, even more than the words, gave insight into the characters and the culture.

    A very good story with memorable characters. Hoping iBooks will offer more of the author's books in the near future.
