Books To Read
Cold Creek By Jay Nelson Available in hardback, paperback, Kindle
OK, maybe a baby sister isn't the best person in the world to review a book. Especially when she hasn't finished reading it. However, there are some things I can say about it that might pique your interest.
When my brother first started writing this book, my mother and I were his principal typists. In a brutal moment, I called it a "self-indulgent fictional autobiography that nobody would want to read." I had just typed the part where he wrote about the principal character's little sister, and it wasn't pretty! Little sisters get mad about such things and say stuff like that. Happily, the text has undergone some revisions since then, and the sister is more kindly viewed, and much more fictional.
Jay has captured not only the the more idyllic time before the Vietnam Conflict split this nation so horrendously, but the social flavor of the high school both attended. Beyond that however, he has conveyed a truth about relationships, and the lasting impact of seemingly trivial events.
The world we grew up in has largely vanished. The truth still repeats itself. It all begins when three friends fall for the same girl. I shall leave you with that thought and more. This is not a romance so much as a study of human emotions: how they are expressed and how they play themselves out in lives.
