A great book in print brought to life
If you could sum up Sometimes a Great Notion in three words, what would they be?
Strong Northwest tale
Who was your favorite character and why?
Hank. He was the hero but also an antihero. Kesey brought out his inner thoughts and
downplayed the obvious, i.e. the outer action. He was capable of great love, for his
father, Viv, and Joe Ben but had some trouble expressing this love.
Have you listened to any of Tom Stechschulte???s other performances before? How does this one compare?
The Road. No Country for Old Men. All of them have been well done but
the narrator had more voices in this novel and did all of them extremely well.
Who was the most memorable character of Sometimes a Great Notion and why?
Joe Ben. He was the guy we'd all like to have as a friend. Irrepressible joy and
boundless energy. He wouldn't hurt anyone on purpose. A man who lived his
deep faith but was worldly in every respect.
Any additional comments?
As happened when I read this book 45 years ago in print, I did not want this audiobook

My Favorite Book
If you liked The Count of Monte Christo, Atlas Shrugged, East of Eden, or On the Road you will love this book because it finishes the thought that these books started, but with more humanity, humor and complexity.
