Tree of Smoke

I’m enjoying Tree of Smoke, but finding it less than an easy read. Maybe this is a good thing as many times a challenging read will deliver days or weeks later in an unlikely return. Sometimes situations at work or amongst friends evolve to mirror one that I’ve found in a long, depthy novel. And then, my appreciation for the time it takes to develop characters and plot is renewed tenfold and I pick up another immersive tome. The lure of shorter novels is almost overwhelming this weekend, though, as there are multitudes of them calling, brief yet savory stories. I’m taking a bit of a break from Tree of Smoke to read No Country for Old Men, before it’s due to be returned to the library.
