The story of two college friends on a wilderness canoe trip of a friendship tested by fire white water and violenceWynn and Jack have been best friends since freshman orientation bonded by their shared love of mountains books and fishing Wynn is a gentle giant a Vermont kid never happier than when his feet are in the water Jack is rugged. A little too slow building and descriptive for me There is some intense suspenseful moments but the detailed and somewhat repetitiveness stalled the flow of the story He even describes how fast they paddled the canoe 3mph the various species of birds singing and the brand of sleeping bag they slept in I know this would be a plus for many but I was ready for something to happenThis one was a favorite of many of my GR friends I like to try new to me authors and I have been hearing great things about Peter HellerI did finish it and wanted to see how the mystery resolved but I felt like I'd been on a very long river ride Lots of five star reviews for this one so probably a case of its meThis was a library check out for 2019
