    "I imagine you like Kent Haruf's writing style if your looking at this. I think he has a very vivid imagination. Haruf's style is best described as simple yet descriptive and Plainsong illustrates this magically, allowing him to paint a beautiful sight in imaginations without much effort. Not for everyone, but if you like his style, this book is a great choice."

    "Author Kent Haruf teamed up with photographer Peter Brown in this enchanting examination of life in the American great plain states. You can revisit these areas and imagine the grandeur and serenity of the great plains with this book. The calm prose and historical facts in the book make it a treasure for anyone wanting a relaxing read."

    "This is not one of my favorite books by Kent Haruf. I think it is too mainstream and not as good as some of his other works."

    "This is a difficult read. It covers a difficult subject, and there's a lot of misery. There's of course the expected uplifting heartwarming messages, but this is a book about a man with terminal cancer. There's a lot to grapple with. And I don't know - for me, this felt like it was gratuitous. I don't mean to demean those who suffer from this affliction, of course, but it's just really depressing to read about. Maybe you'd like it more than I did."
