There's usually a point at which these longer short story collections start to blend together enough to turn reading them into a slog for me. I didn't have that experience with Something Rich and Strange. Sure, all the stories take place in the same region of America, but they take dramatically different perspectives - temporally, thematically, etc... - and the quality was consistent enough that I would recommend the collection to anybody looking for stories centered on the Appalachian experience.… (lisätietoja)

I have to thank my GR friends for letting me know that Ron Rash even exists!

Listened to this on audio (which, I admit is one of the weaker audio narrations I've heard). Took me a while to to get into the book, but when I did ---- what a good story.

Although the book is set in a small North Carolina town, it's as timely as ever (unfortunately..) It's a tale of the tragic consequences when ignorance, prejudice, and superstition are fueled by hate and pride.

This book has a beautiful lyricism and I loved the descriptions of music and birds.

4 solid stars.

I developed another Rash. This one took me back to the mountains of North Carolina. However, instead of meeting the good-hearted people of [b:The Cove|11807189|The Cove|Ron Rash|http://images.gr-assets.com/books/1340737438s/11807189.jpg|16760618], I was introduced to some of the most ruthless characters in literature.

Serena and George Pemberton have never met a living creature (human, animal, or plant) they do not wish to dominate (or destroy) for their own gain. With an element of suspense, Rash weaves a tale of ambition gone awry.

Highly recomended for fans of southern literature, those who like strong female characaters, or those who just like a darn good story.

4.5 stars.

Perhaps not my favorite Ron Rash, but that's kind of like saying "Well, it wasn't my favorite trip to Paris". It's still a trip to Paris, which means it's pretty damn good.

With themes of [b:The Secret Wisdom of the Earth|22217702|The Secret Wisdom of the Earth|Christopher Scotton|https://d2arxad8u2l0g7.cloudfront.net/books/1403541255s/22217702.jpg|41558303] and [b:A Land More Kind Than Home|12408149|A Land More Kind Than Home|Wiley Cash|https://d2arxad8u2l0g7.cloudfront.net/books/1332536334s/12408149.jpg|17389742], Rash tells the tale of a local Sheriff on the verge of retirement, land rights, environmental damage, and the plague of drug addiction. Each character with a back story.

More than in any of his other books, he also writes so beautifully about the natural world, I just have to stop and catch my breath. It's all right there if you just stop and look.

"Last week I brought the children to the meadow. How many different things can you see? At first, only three -- tree, grass, flower. Then as they moved around the meadow -- actually seeing -- over a hundred before they left. As I step out of the meadow after they leave I hear a crunch. Cicada sluff. What a gift! To shed one's old self so easily."

3.5 stars
