Mini-Review: O Pioneers!

One of the things I wanted to do when I got my Sony Reader was to read some of the classics that I had never gotten around to. The first one I chose was O Pioneers! by Willa Cather. I love this book. It tells the story of Swedish immigrants in the mid-western US in the nineteenth century. I enjoyed the story and the characters. What I really enjoyed was the realism and how things just seemed to happen-- much like they do in real life. I went out and found the movie version with Jessica Lang et al and watched it afterwards. It was pretty good too. I highly recommend this book and you can download it for free here.
