Publisher's Summary

Seventeen-year-old Jesse Matson ventures into the northern Minnesota woods with his father on a cold November afternoon. Perched on individual hunting stands a quarter mile apart, they wait with their rifles for white-tailed deer. When the muffled crack of a gunshot rings out, Jesse unaccountably knows something is wrong. He races through the trees to find his dad dead of a rifle wound, apparently self-inflicted.But would easygoing Harold Matson really kill himself? If so, why?Haunted by the ghost of his father, Jesse delves into family secrets, wrestles with questions of justice and retribution, and confronts the nature of his own responsibility. And just when he's decided that he alone must shoulder his family's burden, the beautiful and troubled Christine Montez enters his life, forcing him to reconsider his plans. In spare, elegant prose, Lin Enger tells the story of a young man trying to hold his family together in a world tipped suddenly upside down. Set among pristine lakes and beneath towering pines, Undiscovered Country is at once a bold reinvention of Shakespeare's Hamlet and a hair-bristling story of betrayal, revenge, and the possibilities of forgiveness.

kept me coming back for more

I had a hard time deciding if I liked the book in the beginning. I do like the book and how I know is every time I had to quit listening I wanted to go back and listen some more, to find out how the story would end. It kept my interest up and wanting more, I needed to know, was his feeling right or could he just not except the truth. would he get his revenge and how?
It is well written and the charactors well developed. It was the subject matter that disturbed me at times. I thought the prose was good and scene's well discribed so I could envision the forest and lake. The narrator did a good job and would listen to him a again.
I recommend this book to everyone.
