A Book a Week – The Maid’s Version

After The Rosie Project, I picked up The Maid’s Version for something more serious. And more serious it was.

I’d never read Daniel Woodrell before even though I’d seen The Winter’s Bone in the movies. Having read this book, I am confident the movie must have been so inferior. Woodrell’s writing is nothing short of amazing. The words, the phrases, the whole thing is just excellent.

Even though the subject matter is tough and it jumps around a bit more than I’d like, this is a short book and it’s a literary joy. If you like really well-written books, this is one not to miss.
