Deliverance (Modern Library 100 Best Novels)

Deliverance (Modern Library 100 Best Novels) - James Dickey

Read the full review on my site here: http://infinispace.net/2015/03/review-deliverance-by-james-dickey/

 

A story about a lifeless and meek man (Ed) who revels in the violence and pain, coming out stronger on the other end. A story about a larger than life man (Lewis) who's wings are clipped and brought back to Earth. A story about an everyman (Bobby) who suffers a humiliation worthy of murder. And a story about a righteous man (Drew) who pays the ultimate price for all their sins.

A story about survival before survival stories were a thing.

Deliverance.
