Description

Soon to be a Netflix film starring Jane Fonda and Robert Redford.

In the familiar setting of Holt, Colorado, home to all of Kent Haruf's inimitable fiction, Addie Moore pays an unexpected visit to a neighbor, Louis Waters. Her husband died years ago, as did his wife, and in such a small town they naturally have known of each other for decades; in fact, Addie was quite fond of Louis's wife. His daughter lives hours away, her son even farther, and Addie and Louis have long been living alone in empty houses, the nights so terribly lonely, especially with no one to talk with. But maybe that could change? As Addie and Louis come to know each other better--their pleasures and their difficulties--a beautiful story of second chances unfolds, making Our Souls at Night the perfect final installment to this beloved writer's enduring contribution to American literature.

    As an avid reader, I can say that this book was a huge disappointment on many levels. What a waste of my time and money.I cannot recall when I have read something this lousy.

    I hope that this love story will, sometime in the near future, be made into a movie.

    This is a lovely book about people returning to a younger version of themselves. Having the Courage to take a chance on love and overcoming built in resistance to opening themselves to affection. Older people can also fall in love again and imagine giving pleasure and being companionable. Perhaps a little bittersweet but that's what happens in life.

    I hope the movie with my two favorite actors Redford and Fonda will magically bring this poorly written story to life.

    Touching and meaningful story for someone who has lived its reality. In a simple, clean, unadorned style Haruf creates a memorable tale and a cast of memorable characters. I felt sympathy and joy and sorrow and disappointment as I moved from chapter. I highly recommend this novel.
  • What a beautiful story

    It's hard to believe that a story about an old woman and an old man could be so sad and romantic and heart-piercing. Brought back memories of when I read The Bridges of Madison County in high school & cried my eyes out! I'll be thinking about Addie and Louis for a long time...

    A very sad yet haunting story. It has a spare beauty that is simply told. I would have liked a bit more detail about the characters but when you know that the author was dying as he wrote this book it makes it ever more poignant.
