DESCRIPTION:

"A Rural Walk" according to Tom Thorson. My reading chair faces windows overlooking other glassy residential Chicago high rises. A half-century ago, I was a boy walking along the woods, meadows, ponds, farms and gardens of residences in a small, remote rural community in northern Minnesota. Robert Hill took me on a rural walk again, introducing the long-time inhabitants of New Eden, their secrets and relationships gently revealed. Astonished, I would occasionally look up from THE REMNANTS and out to the City, marveling at how Hill's poignant writing would simultaneously escort me through little New Eden and back to another small, rural place I onc. CoolGirl said Hated reading this book. Hated reading this book. The prose was boring and tried too hard to sound erudite. I cared little for the characters despite the interesting premise of the book. I literally had to force myself to finish it. Every time the author would pull me a little towards a character or scene, he would switch gears or pick up another random thread and I would have to wade through more of his obtuse storytelling trying to grab a hold of something compelling. I was looking forward to the "one final brilliant moment" promised on the back cover of my copy. I was sorely disappointed. There could have been a better novel fro. "I love this book." according to Gigi Little. The Remnants is one of my favorite books in forever. Robert Hill's wordsmithing is off the charts—gorgeous and hilarious and so particular—and as particular as it is, it's not device-y. It's world-building.

The town of New Eden, peopled with hereditary oddities, has arrived at its last days

It’s a masterpiece meant not for plot-lovers, but for literati on the search for an uncommon satisfaction." Brandi Dawn Henderson, PosLit"Fans of Margaret Atwood will love the dystopian end-of-the-world themes, older readers will appreciate the elderly protagonists, literary fiction lovers will connect to the clever word play, and others will love the juxtaposition of humor with dark themes. Yet, these folks love and hope and yearn like the rest of us, and their stories are magical. His gorgeous prose rambles from hilarious to sly to clever, and then doubles back so it can dive right off into beautiful, heartsick and poignant. Hill has the silver tongue of a master wordsmith. And when Hunko finds Kennesaw, and Molly and Leopold are yes, of
