My first forage into Cather was a good one.

by pamela1717 on Aug 2, 2007

I rarely venture into to the classics but I had this strange urge to try to read a Pulitzer Prize winner. This is the one I picked up. I have never read a Willa Cather novel before. I can now say that I would have no problem picking up one of her books again. I really enjoyed this novel. It can't say it was an exciting novel (so if you're into twist and turns this is not for you) but a plain story on how events affected the main character's decision to join the army in the midst of WWI. There is less about the war as one expects from the synopsis and more about the character's home life and relationships in Nebraska. Cather's writing is very straightforward and not flowery (which I greatly appreciate).
