Our Souls At Night ( Book )/ ( Audio )

“In the familiar setting of Holt, Colorado, home to all of Kent Haruf's inimitable fiction, Addie Moore pays an unexpected visit to a neighbor, Louis Waters. Her husband died years ago, as did his wife, and in such a small town they naturally have known of each other for decades; in fact, Addie was quite fond of Louis's wife. His daughter lives hours away, her son even farther, and Addie and Louis have long been living alone in empty houses, the nights so terribly lonely, especially with no one to talk with. But maybe that could change? As Addie and Louis come to know each other better--their pleasures and their difficulties--a beautiful story of second chances unfolds, making Our Souls at Night the perfect final installment to this beloved writer's enduring contribution to American literature.”

Our Souls At Night  (Review):

Good Afternoon Luvaholics,

Almost finished reading this book, but I wanted to share my thoughts with you all.

When we’re young, we always dread the thought of getting older. This book gives us a new insight on life of the elderly through the eyes of Addie Moore and Louis Waters.

Let’s be honest:  our youth provides a sense of carelessness. Never minding our tomorrows, because we’ll be “young” forever.

Every Chapter thus far has spoken to me.

It confirms:

  1. We will get “old” one day.
  2. It doesn’t matter our age, loneliness creeps up at any time.
  3. Regardless the age, people will talk about you. Make up a version(s) that will make the conversation sound juicier.
  4. “Damn if you do, damn if you don’t”.
  5. Family will make assumptions according to the public, but will never ask the source.
  6. Fear attacks all ages.

** For the young, don’t forget about the old. They need love too.

** For the elderly, don’t limit yourself to other’s perception on what you can and can’t do. You matter too.

**Who knows how “old” our souls are…age really doesn’t define our life on this Earth.
