"In the lawless, drought-ridden lands of the Arizona Territory in 1893, two extraordinary lives collide. Nora is an unflinching frontierswoman, alone in a house abandoned by the men in her life--her husband, who has gone in search of water for the parched household, and her two older sons, who have gone in search of their father after his return is delayed. Nora is biding her time with her youngest son, a boy with a bad eye who is convinced that a mysterious beast is stalking the land around their home, and a seventeen year old maid named Josie, her husband's cousin who communes with spirits. Lurie is the son of a dead dockworker, a former outlaw, and a man haunted by ghosts--he sees lost souls who want something from him, and he finds reprieve from their longing in an unexpected relationship that inspires an epic journey across the West. The way in which Nora and Lurie's stories intertwine is the surprise and suspense of this brilliant novel. Mythical, lyrical, and sweeping in scope, Inland showcases all of Téa Obreht's talents as a writer, as she subverts and reimagines the classical American genre of the Western, making it entirely--and unforgettably--her own" --… (més)

Dual stories that must connect somehow, in a symbolic manner that is obviously deeper than I am!

While potentially a great topic, I didn't care for either story or any character. It seemed way too disjointed. Nothing really gelled at the end (which was so abrupt, a real cop out). ( )

Inland is a sprawling story of the Old West, a bit slow to get into, but satisfying in the end. It has two intertwining narratives. One, spanning many years, is about an orphan named Lurie who can see the dead. He is aimless and on the run from a warrant on his head when he falls in with a band of cameleers who brought camels to help the Army traverse the unsettled American desert. Lurie, now with a different name, bonds with one of the camels and spends a lifetime with the animal. The other narrative takes place over the course of one day and night. It is about an Arizona homesteader named Nora, whose husband and older sons are missing and who is almost out of water due to a drought. She also talks to a ghost, the ghost of her infant daughter who died of heatstroke. These two stories are each compelling in their own right, and they are eventually brought together in a way that surprised me. ( )

I'm not entirely sure how to review this story. None of it will probably make sense, but here's hoping it will.

I read the first fifty-five percent, got audible and had a credit left and thought, what the hell, I'll listen to this story. I don't know why, 'cause I was loving every page of that fifty-five percent, but it's whatever.

I think at its core, this is a story about family and how death and other hardships shapes its overall dynamic. On one side you have Nora and her family which is unique in a way I won't spoil for you. On the other, you have Lurie who had his own unique family. And his own unique circumstances.

Throughout this book you'll be drawn into their lives, past and present, until both their worlds meet. It's a story too about family history.

What's so hard about reviewing this book? The above is really nothing you can't get from the synopsis. What's difficult to explain is why you should finish this book. Why you should read it in the first place.

That's difficult because not a lot happens, while at the same time so very much happens. It's plodding, but thrilling. Unique but familiar. Emotional in every way imaginable. Every character, every moment, is precisely placed. Nothing is superfluous. The writing is tremendous.

I keep thinking of this story, as a 'days in the life of' sort of story. And I think that's the best way to look at it. You're getting a lot of history, with snapshots of the present. It's thrilling, but overall there isn't an overall story arc. It's ore an experience than anything.

I enjoyed the heck out of it. I hope you check it out. ( )

It took me a while to get into this novel, but about 1/3 through it grabbed me. I love how imperfect the characters are, how much they struggle to recognize their weaknesses and correct them. They keep making the same mistakes, but each time move just a little closer to doing better. It's incremental change that's realistic and inspiring. The story's delightfully quirky, and the setting cast new light on my many cross-country road trips. ( )
