Other, The

Two men, who met in high school and went to college together, take two strikingly different paths. Though they shared a connection through their love of nature, their friendship is unlikely. One man becomes an English teacher, a husband, a father, while the other goes off to live a life as a hermit deep in the woods of Washington.

This intriguing coming-of-age novel by David Guterson explores what it means to live a good life, whether it is following the typical path to success and fulfillment or following your own dream. Beautiful language and deep characters.

Peace, Aimee


  1. I'm more familiar with another book entitled THE OTHER, written by Thomas Tryon, with one of the most surprising plot twists I've ever come across. :)
