Summary Cold Mountain ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Free download ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB å Charles Frazier Charles Frazier å 6 Summary In 1997 Charles Frazier' s debut novel Cold Mountain made publishing history when it sailed to the top of The New York Times best seller list for sixty one weeks won numerous literary awards including the National Book Award and went on to sell over three million copies Now the beloved American epic returns reissued by Grove Press to coincide with the publication. Cold Mountain is uite possibly the most beautiful book that I ve ever read It s not for the faint of heart however as it s time consuming and reuires a great deal of patience as Frazier takes his time with his descriptions of the landscape and the people as Inman a soldier broken in spirit by the futility and waste of the Civil War decides to walk home to Ada and his beloved Cold Mountain That is not to say that Frazier wastes the reader s time or goes off on unnecessary tangents although for those who like uick narratives it may seem that way but he is in no hurry to rush the novel to its conclusion To have done so would have stripped the novel of its power as it examines the lives of both Inman and Ada a Southern belle woefully unprepared to exist in the harsh mountain landscape of Cold Mountain when she finds herself all alone What may seem like lengthy transcendentalist like descriptions of nature actually serve to reveal the inner life of each character and enrich the narrativeOf the two alternating narratives I found Inman s the most compelling His is a Dante like journey through the Inferno of the American South comparisons could also be made to Homer s The Odyssey While he time and again encounters people wallowing in depravity and sin in a seemingly lawless world he also encounters along this hellish journey acts of selflessness and kindness that serve as balm to his soul when he s on the cusp of losing all hope Ironically those offering the greatest kindnesses are those who are the most excluded from society slaves and women Inman is a man who is capable of violence but only when necessary After killing indiscriminately in war he s determined to do no harm unless it s absolutely unavoidable It may be because of the violence that is still latent within him that Inman struggles so with the world and his place in it Of the reviews I ve read most readers disliked the novel s ending Without giving away any spoilers I ll only state that I thought the ending was the only possible one offered in a world consumed by warCross posted at This Insignificant Cinder

How long would you wait for your lover if you knew not whether they were alive and you yourself had changed almost beyond recognition This is a beautiful understated unsentimental Odyssey of uiet longing endurance and transformation This journey will be the axle of my lifeInman s journey is across hundreds of dangerous miles fleeing war and trying to get to where his love lives four years after they parted She had made her way to a place where an entirely other order prevailed from what she had always knownAda s journey takes place within a few miles of her home It s no coincidence that Inman s treasured book is a travel book whereas Ruby held a deep distrust of travel even to the shops Times are tough but at least Ada and Inman have confidence in who and what it is they yearn for StructureMost of the novel alternates between Ada s and Inman s separate struggles to survive with backstory gradually provided by their reminiscences Each of Inman s chapters involves a dramatic encounter good or bad that sheds light on his character as well as the trials of war and wilderness Ada is 26 orphaned nearly destitute and trying to cope with a little land but no staff or skill The varying tempo works wellBoth Inman and Ada cultivate the art of really seeing Inman is ever watchful noticing every little sign in nature or people s behaviour that may signal danger a shadow behind leaves a blade hidden in a hairdo Ada learns to see the signs of seasons weather harvest birds and animalsThe language is sometimes a little archaic as it should be uotation marks are not used but I didn t really feel their absence dialog is usually prefaced with a long dashCivil WarAlthough the backdrop is the American civil war I didn t feel hampered by my relative lack of knowledge of US history There was enough background detail to picture daily life but the politics and the war were external to the characters and hence to me as a readerRight and Wrong Revenge and ForgivenessInman is a deserter badly injured but a deserter none the less He was never a natural killer is haunted by what he s seen and done and doesn t believe in the cause anyway if he ever did There are gangs wanting bounty for finding deserters and desperate men who will kill for any reason and none Coupled with his inherently peaceful and forgiving nature repeatedly put to the test the risks are great Pondering the story of a man born blind Inman asks himself What would be the cost of not having an enemy Who could you strike for retribution other than yourselfBut retribution isn t really his mindset he s almost too good to be true given the hardships and dangers he faces such as stealing food but leaving money than it s worth putting himself in grave danger to help strangersand avoiding and preventing violence even when it s not really his responsibility and would be easier to walk away He s certainly forgiving than the disgraced preacher VeaseyThe Sustenance of Literature and MusicAn unexpected pleasure was the underlying thread of the solace to be found in books On the very first page Inman is in military hospital settling his mind with a treasured copy of Travels of William Bartram Throughout the story he returns to this book in small snippets at times of need view spoilerWhen he s reunited with Ada he reads her an extract hide spoiler

You ve probably seen the movie made from this bookIt was a fine movie It won OscarsBut it cannot begin to capture the truly spectacular parts of this story because they are not the surface level narratives that make it onto the big screenBefore you can truly appreciate the uality of this book you need to be familiar with at least Homer s Odyssey Dante s Inferno and parts of the Bible You need to be on guard for a depth of symbolism and complexity of foreshadowing and allusion that will boggle your mindI always knew the movie didn t really get the book but when my dad who has not read the book referred to it as a chick flick because he thought of it primarily as a love story which it is but not that kind then I really realized what one misses when one has not read the book
