Jul 11, Raeleen Lemay rated it liked it Shelves: Third book down for the BookTubeAThon! I think this would have worked better in longer form, as it felt way too rushed. This was a very character driven story, but I feel like I didn’t get to know the characters all that well.
I’m excited to watch the movie tonight! Many direct quotes from the story were used, and it followed the exact same plot but fleshed it out a lot more.
Not the most exciting movie of all time, but I definitely felt the feels because Jake and Heath perfectly portrayed the leading men. View all 6 comments. Apr 06, Lola rated it liked it Shelves: Sometimes, I want to cry. But crying won’t help. Everyone should have the right to love freely and be loved back without being pointed at and tyrannized for showing such a beautiful emotion. We live in an ugly world. But Jack and Ennis, they live in an uglier one. Would my heart still be intact today?
Fate would have brought them together, if not at Brokeback Mountain, someplace else — some other time, some other day. They would still have felt that indescribable connection and denied their attraction to one another. He wants to settle down with Ennis and start their flawed live together. Ennis… Ennis is lost.
When he was young, his father made sure he saw the body of the rancher who was tortured to death for being gay. Even a fully-grown man can be scared out of his mind and prefer giving up on broleback most beautiful life he could have with his loved one, for guaranteed security.
As much as I wanted to shake Ennis, I understood his reasons for preferring to steer clear of anything that could make him end up like the dead rancher. Sometimes, sacrifices have to be done to survive. What a cruel world. I didn’t mean to end on such a pessimistic note, but this is not a happy story.

Apr 01, TK poulx it really liked it. Normally, I would never read something like this. No, I am not homophobic my older brother is gay ; but I do get tahemnica when reading about two men kissing.
So, needless to say, I wasn’t expecting much from this very short novella. Let me be the first to say how utterly wrong I was. This novella is not merely about two men who fall in love; it is about love itself. The love story these men share is intense, stormy, beautiful, and heart-wrenching, and I found myself thankful that I have on Normally, I would never read something like this.

Annie Proulx is one of the foremost American writers today. Her novel The Shipping News won the Pulitzer Prize, and her latest novel Barkskins seems nountain have been written in the same vain.
As I am drawn to Pulitzer winners in my ongoing personal challenge to read them, I decided to sample Proulx’s writing before bokeback the reading of one of her full length novels. Anniie Mountain set high in the Rockies and later made into a movie of the same name was originally published in the New Yorker Annie Proulx is one of the foremost American writers today.
Brokeback Mountain set high in the Rockies and later made into a movie of the same name was originally published in the New Yorker. A controversial story of forbidden love, the writing did not disappoint. Ennis Del Mar and Jack Twist were both twenty and looking to embark on their ranching careers.
Each came from a distinct background from opposite ends of the state of Wyoming yet wound up on the same summer sheep drive up on Brokeback Mountain near the Montana border. Both young men were classic macho cowboys who could hold his own on the range. Ennis was engaged to be married to a local sweetheart the following December. Yet, one cold night while sharing a sleeping bag, the two men engaged in a forbidden act of love that is all but taboo in the cowboy community.
This one event commenced Jack and Ennis’ relationship for the next twenty years, one that would hold disastrous for them and their families. At only fifty five pages in length, Proulx weaved a tragic story of forbidden love. It is a subject matter that I often stay away from yet the writing was so compelling that I read the entire story in mere minutes. Proulx bfokeback originally from the eastern Mounain States, but her prose describing rural Wyoming is captivating, and one could see how from this short prou,x, that the scenery could easily transfer pgoulx the big screen.
It is because of the writing that I stuck with the story. I felt for Ennis’ wife who had to hide her husband’s secret for years, working to support their two daughters while he pined for Jack.
Proulx set the story up so that the majority of readers would sympathize with the mountani, but I was lead to feel for the supporting cast of characters who were all effected by these two men’s decision of continuing a forbidden, clandestine, taboo relationship.
Not only were the characters well fleshed out, but Proulx weaved in multiple story lines tajemnnica this short tale, making the writing engaging from start to finish.
Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx
I have heard that her full length books are slow moving albeit attentive to detail and emphasizing character development rather than plot.
It is obvious that from this short tale that Proulx can write and I am intrigued to fit her novels into my ongoing Pulitzer challenge. For now, I am left with a bittersweet taste in my mouth after engaging in this short story. Dec 02, Nancy rated it it was amazing Shelves: I picked this up at the library last night because it was a tiny book, perfect for today’s lunch time read. I’m ashamed to say that I attempted to watch the film, but fell asleep about 45 minutes in. Now that I’ve read this story, I’m going to revisit the film.
This is the first time I’ve read Annie Proulx. It is amazing how much story she covers in so few pages. Her spare prose, concise style and quiet intensity really worked for me. An absolutely beautiful, heartbreaking love story! Makes me wan I picked this up at the library last night because it was a tiny book, perfect for today’s lunch time read.
Makes me want to crack open a bottle of whiskey and roll a joint. View all 44 comments.
