This may have been my favorite book I read in 2017. I just let go of The Stranger in the Woods and gave it to my brother-in-law to read. It is the fascinating story of a hermit who lived by himself outside year-round in all the weather of Maine. It is a fascinating story!
I ate up this story! Of course, it is all true and amazing. Ther hermit is eventually busted for breaking an entering and hauled off to jail. Feeling incredibly ashamed of his crimes he pleads guilty yo more than one-thousand break-ins. After several months they released him to the custody of his family.
I found the writing style and the story engrossing. Have you ever taken a long time to read a book, not because you didn’t like it, but because you didn’t want it to end? This is how I read this book. I could have finished it in a sitting or two, but I didn’t want to. I wanted to savor the story. I wanted it to last. It earned a 5/5 rating from me!
