The Other is the first book I have read by David Guterson. Unfortunately, it is likely the last. The story centers around two men who become friends in university. One becomes a hermit living in the woods while the other continues to visit and befriend him for many years. When the hermit dies, he leaves a fortune to his friend. The author uses very verbose language with many pages not having a single paragraph break. I found this a bit overwhelming and, overall, the story was very slow. Now at the end of the book, I am not really even sure what the point of the book was. I truly enjoy most books that I read. I can appreciate the writing ability of the author but I didn't enjoy this book.
