Hunter’s Moon by Philip Caputo

If this cover doesn’t grab your attention to want to read this book, then I don’t know what will! It’s GORGEOUS!

Thank you Henry Holt books for gifting me a copy in exchange for my honest review.

Synopsis: Hunter’s Moon is set in Michigan’s wild, starkly beautiful Upper Peninsula, where a cast of recurring characters move into and out of each other’s lives, building friendships, facing loss, confronting violence, trying to bury the past or seeking to unearth it. Once-a-year lovers, old high-school buddies on a hunting trip, a college professor and his wayward son, a middle-aged man and his grief-stricken father, come together, break apart, and, if they’re fortunate, find a way forward.

I am always on the hunt for books that are outside of my usual comfort zone. This book especially caught my eye since each chapter is a stand alone short story, all with the focus around a small town community. The way each chapter was interconnected was so beautifully done! This book is very male-centric and focuses a lot on hunting, but it was a neat experience for me to read it nonetheless! I probably wouldn’t pick it up again, but I’m intrigued to read more stories written in this style!

3/5 Stars
