As others have noted, there are parts of these stories that are very beautifully written. I rushed through the book, though, and missed some of the finer points. My loss. On the other hand, perhaps some of the points were too subtle for me to catch. I wonder it it’d become more clear to me if I saw the movie...
In any case, the descriptions the author provides of life in small-town Montana and working in the woods with the US Forest Service in the early twentieth century were very interesting. And the fact these details were worked into the stories was neat.

The central short story, "A River Runs Through it"- deals with the themes of love, family, obligation, and the huge challenge of what it is that we can and can't do on behalf of those that we love. Of course, fly fishing is also mentioned a time or two. :)
I loved this and I glad I found it. The themes are timeless and really resonated with me. I can't imagine anybody not thoroughly enjoying these stories.
