  1. Where to begin with Jayber Crow I won t go in to the story because I went in blind and felt it immensely satisfying I will remark on two things As soon as I closed the book I literary said out loud, Beautiful That is the best way to describe Jayber Crow The entire book is beautiful What makes the book beautiful is the way Berry writes The book is almost a slowly paced, sitting on the porch in rocking chairs conversational style of writing It felt as if I was sitting listening to my grandfather r [...]


  2. Since I m among the older crowd, it s hard for me to relate to many of the young authors of today Wendell Berry may be an acquired taste, as his books wouldn t be called Action Packed or full of romance, mystery or intrigue His books are hard to describe, as they are about ordinary people living their lives in a small town , if you could call it that Maybe a village would suit for an explanation Anyhow, I ve read several of his books and many take place within this same community , with these sa [...]


  3. This book takes patience to read, but if you can last, you will be rewarded with a settling contentment, a sorrowful joy of soul that words cannot reach to adequately describe This was recommended by Modern Mrs Darcy as one she has read than once, so I thought I would have a go at it, Wendell Berry being a Kentucky boy after all It took a little bit of time to become immersed, but it was never difficult to read enough to get my feet wet About halfway through, I was captured by the historicity, t [...]


  4. This is one of my all time favorite books It was Wendell Berry s first novel, and I believe his best, though they are all wonderful The first time I read it, I was amazed at the beauty of each sentence I would go back and read a passage over and over to soak it in and commit it to memory When I finished the book, I opened it up and read it again because I couldn t bear to leave Port William and the people I had come to love there I read it at least once a year now because I get lonesome for the [...]


  5. Having read this book I am definitely going on to read by Wendell Berry I am not sure whether non Christians will fully appreciate the internal struggles of Jayber Crow and the depth of his thinking, but I personally found in this barber of Port William, an example of love I ve never come across before outside the four Gospels.


  6. Berry writes about a world I know nothing about but as ever the universal is revealed best through the particular This is an excellent read.
