The Signal

The Signal: A Novel The Signal: A Novel by Ron Carlson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Kind of an odd book. Ron Carlson beautifully depicts the setting of his novel in the mountains of Montana and Wyoming. But the interactions between Vonnie and Mack fall into the terse limited ways that people who have been together for years tend toward. And in its own way, those interactions are beautiful too.
Carlson keeps the story tight and short, so you’ll finish it quickly. But I think it will seep into you for a while after you read it. Nice work.
Next up is The Magicians by Lev Grossman.
