    The Very Marrow of our Bones

    I really loved the characters - depth, flaws, quirks. Great plot. Would love to read more of Christine Higdon!

    A little disappointing

    I read the reviews on this book before I began just like I do for all books I read and I found these reviews highly overrated and exaggerated. It was an ok read. Some parts were good, others I was bored and wanted to give up on the book. I am glad I finished it, though I was disappointed in the ending.. you wait for something to happen the whole read, then it happens and the book ends! Really!?

    A true description

    Such a beautifully written book. Truly relatable. Another dysfunctional family looking to mend relationships. Couldn't put it down!

    A unique and rewarding read

    It has been awhile since I've read a book that was both unique and compelling, but Marrow was just a book for me. As a person who grew up in the suburban Fraser Valley during the 60's and onward, Higdon's portrayal created a visceral reminder of the experience. She pegs it, from the skunky bottles mouldering in the ditches to the ubiquitous slugs, mud and blackberries that were a part of every local kid's experience. Beyond the painterly accuracy of her story, Higdon weaves a tale that makes us ponder death and loss, with greater themes about the choices and regrets of life. She makes us consider what happens when the impetuousness of youthful decisions becomes entrenched over the long term. We dive into the hidden dynamics behind charisma and begin to appreciate the depth of people who might seem simple. The interplay by her characters is handled in a way that is intriguing and thought-provoking, but never seems constructed or artificial. For the mystery reader, there are also many elements of surprise. This was not a predictable book. Its trajectory answers almost all questions, but leaves us with hope and wonder at the end. If there is one criticism of the novel, it's the fact that it sometimes lacks verisimilitude when depicting the political and social realities of the time. Higdon addresses the matter of institutionalization of disabled persons accurately and artfully, but she seems hesitant to state frankly the language and values people used in the 1960's and 70's to describe people of othe races, sexual orientations and abilities. In my experience, these were harsh times for anyone different, but in Higdon's fictive community of Fraser Arm, people take a much more "live and let live" approach, which is simply not how I recall those times. In summary, this a book for anyone who wants vivid description, deep characters, engaging and unique plot, and thought-provoking themes.
