"In the lawless, drought-ridden lands of the Arizona Territory in 1893, two extraordinary lives collide. Nora is an unflinching frontierswoman, alone in a house abandoned by the men in her life--her husband, who has gone in search of water for the parched household, and her two older sons, who have gone in search of their father after his return is delayed. Nora is biding her time with her youngest son, a boy with a bad eye who is convinced that a mysterious beast is stalking the land around their home, and a seventeen year old maid named Josie, her husband's cousin who communes with spirits. Lurie is the son of a dead dockworker, a former outlaw, and a man haunted by ghosts--he sees lost souls who want something from him, and he finds reprieve from their longing in an unexpected relationship that inspires an epic journey across the West. The way in which Nora and Lurie's stories intertwine is the surprise and suspense of this brilliant novel. Mythical, lyrical, and sweeping in scope, Inland showcases all of Téa Obreht's talents as a writer, as she subverts and reimagines the classical American genre of the Western, making it entirely--and unforgettably--her own" --… (mais)

Years ago, when I read the Tiger's Wife, I cried upon finishing the book, both because I found it incredibly moving but also because I loved it and was sad that it was finished. I just finished Inland and am literally still blinking the tears away for the same reasons. I admittedly am a crying champion (not unlike that internet girlfriend with the gay swans), but it's worth noting that no other author has this effect on me! Tea Obreht is just that good.

Yes, this is disjointed (I found it hard to keep track of characters, particularly in the early chapters) - but stick with it, it starts to coalesce around the halfway point and the last third in particular is beautiful. Like, I did not expect to be crying at midnight over the plight of the camel in the American West, but here we are. I love Tea Obreht and look forward to her making me cry for many years to come. ( )

Dual stories that must connect somehow, in a symbolic manner that is obviously deeper than I am!

While potentially a great topic, I didn't care for either story or any character. It seemed way too disjointed. Nothing really gelled at the end (which was so abrupt, a real cop out). ( )

Inland is a sprawling story of the Old West, a bit slow to get into, but satisfying in the end. It has two intertwining narratives. One, spanning many years, is about an orphan named Lurie who can see the dead. He is aimless and on the run from a warrant on his head when he falls in with a band of cameleers who brought camels to help the Army traverse the unsettled American desert. Lurie, now with a different name, bonds with one of the camels and spends a lifetime with the animal. The other narrative takes place over the course of one day and night. It is about an Arizona homesteader named Nora, whose husband and older sons are missing and who is almost out of water due to a drought. She also talks to a ghost, the ghost of her infant daughter who died of heatstroke. These two stories are each compelling in their own right, and they are eventually brought together in a way that surprised me. ( )

It took me a while to get into this novel, but about 1/3 through it grabbed me. I love how imperfect the characters are, how much they struggle to recognize their weaknesses and correct them. They keep making the same mistakes, but each time move just a little closer to doing better. It's incremental change that's realistic and inspiring. The story's delightfully quirky, and the setting cast new light on my many cross-country road trips. ( )
