sports they indulge in which they claim teach us about life in general and how to properly live it And so is it here fly fishing in the great rivers of Montana The reader, in fact, gets a broad hint of this right at its opening sentence which goes In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing The reader who casts his eyes through it may get the feeling like I did that sometimes the author is stretching the analogy a little bit too far already, very close to likening God himself to a river fish he didn t say that and often may roll his eyes, in an amused disbelief, that the author could, for instance, suggest that fishermen like him are better at grasping eternity than anyone else The body and spirit suffer nosudden visitation than that of losing a big fish, since, after all, there must be some slight transition between life and death But, with a big fish, one moment the world is nuclear and the next it has disappeared.Poets talk about spots of time, but it is really fishermen who experience eternity compressed into a moment No one can tell what a spot of time is until suddenly the whole world is a fish and the fish is gone I shall remember that son of a bitch forever In any case, even if you disregard the fact that the story follows the rote formula of getting an old man or woman, as in the movie Titanic to narrate about his recollection of the past, his reminiscences about his loved ones who had died especially those who perished in the prime of their lives , and his own personal what could have beens, I d say this probably has one of the most poignant endings in the whole of literature, whether fiction or non fiction Now nearly all those I loved and did not understand when I was young are dead, but still I reach out to them Of course, now I am too old to be much of a fisherman, and now of course I usually fish the big waters alone, although some friends think I shouldn t Like many fly fishermen in western Montana where the summer days are almost Arctic in length, I often do not start fishing until the cool of the evening Then in the Arctic half light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four count rhythm and the hope that a big fish will rise Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it The river was cut by the world s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs I am haunted by waters I am not, however, haunted by waters I live in the city and its remaining rivers are shallow, polluted and without any fish But we have great malls, andare being built So if I were to write a story like this, I ll end it with something like Eventually, all our childhood playgrounds merge into one, and a mall is built on it I am haunted by fastfoods In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing We lived at the junction of great trout rivers in western Montana, and our father was a Presbyterian minister and a fly fisherman who tied his own flies and taught others I am haunted by rivers And so begins master storyteller Norman Maclean s tale of his family in early 20th century Montana The book is a classic. .EPUB ♷ A River Runs Through It ⚒ From its first magnificent sentence,

by Patricia Limerick of the Center of the American West The story is iconic western literature.Here we read in novella format the essentially autobiographical story of the author s painful memories of his relationship with his beloved brother, who lives on in his consciousness as the Michelangelo of fly fishing.The retelling of the story, written when the author was in his seventies, reflects its Scottish Presbyterian roots in his family upbringing The reader must listen closely, read closely between the lines, to hear the deep heartbreak that is its driving energy.At least 80% of the narrative is of the river, the mountains and forests, and most especially the art of fly fishing The story of the family could be removed from the pages and an interesting travelogue would remain I read reviews that refer to the fishing as an extended metaphor, but my perspective tells me its primarily function is to serve as a hiding place for the author, a buffer to help him moderate the intensity of the pain he continues to bear from his failed longings to help a man bent on self destruction.I have visions of the author retreating to his writing cottage, laboring fully for the two years it reportedly took him to write a this short novel long story I suspect much of his time was spent in silent reverie.Later made into a film of surpassing beauty by Robert Redford, the story lives on as an enduring classic of mountain life The first line is as perfect as any first line, in any book And it quickly devolves to many pages of clever, jocular manly speak, not unlike listening to sports broadcasters It s a short book, and I began to question, during this long section, why this is a classic It s okay, and some of it is very funny, but it was like sitting down next to a tongue in cheek type of wise guy at a bar But then it had this very memorable scene, and I could finally see how it got made into a movie And there s The first line is as perfect as any first line, in

finally see how it got made into a movie And there s the fishing, that I likebut still I could not see the lasting value of this book Finally it became clear in the last 25 pages, which are poetry And having the sister that I have, I understood the things behind the fishing so well, and there were a few scenes which said so clearly and so simply what you feel in this kind of scenario So, I don t know It wasn t as consistently beautiful as I d hoped, but it was worth a read There s not much I can write about this novella that would do it justice but I ll try.It s lyrical and poetic and simple and beautiful The prose is elegant and direct and there s a grace to every moment of it even when the subject matter is a drinking,fighting or whores Norman Maclean writes like Hemingway, if Hemingway had gained a bit of wisdom and dropped the over arching need to prove something to his readers or himself.It is, a great read It s also a page turner I find it hard to read There s not much I can
