There is a certain rhythm to this story it is as quiet as the remote location Matt gets stranded in I could sense the love Matt felt for the silence and the basic way of living, the need to get away from the city and the stress He hadn t had any satisfying personal relationships in his life and I was able to see how living and working with Jens, the man who rescued him, might attract Matt On the other hand he was hesitant about the realities of living in the wilderness All in all, a pretty balan [...]
I really liked this story not sure what everyone else was reading Maybe it s because I m older and reflective around this time of year, but this really touched a nerve with me I could relate to Matt s vague dissatisfaction with his life, his job, his lack of relationship, etc I liked the whole story of Jens and Gord and the whole living off the land thing When I m going crazy with a 1000 emails a day, I sometimes think that would be so wonderful It is a very different existence I could have liv [...]
2.5 boring Christmas story that was just ok.
The story was weird and boring There was to much unimportant parts and the end just didn t feel realistic In general the whole story felt odd I didn t much like the plot.
This is a haunting romance adventure story about escaping the modern world, and is untypical of the M M romance genre, being written somewhat in the minor key.At the romantic level it is a menage a trois between two men and a non human character the simple, backwoods life In this way the story is reminiscent of Hardy s The Return of the Native , in which the heath itself was a major character There were some really beautiful descriptions of nature, as well as rustic details such as a chamber pot [...]
This was a very gentle story that slowly winds its way After Matt has an accident, he is rescued by Jens and Jens dog, Ben The time that Matt spends with Jens while recovering from his injuries gives him a chance to think about his life and what would really make him happy I enjoyed the descriptions of the scenery in this story as they gave a real feel of the isolation of the life Jens lived.
Matt has an accident man in the woods helps him Takes him to the cabin takes care of him till his better.Things progress after that
I struggled to finish this one and had a hard time getting either of the characters Just a blah read for me to be quite honest.
almost gave it another point just for being odd city slicker falls for backwoods tracker guy.
This wasn t a christmas story.
