An Epitaph for Coyote by Bryan Dennis


I had a hard time getting into this story.  I think my take away from this is that some people have an even lamer life than I do.  The story seemed slow to me but for a characterization piece it was pretty good.  Dennis gave a good in-depth look at Henry and the type of person he was and how he interacted with others.

However, I found it rather a slow read.  Although well written and edited, the plot seemed to go slowly for me and I had a rough time keeping pace.  I wanted more action and more interactions, I guess.  But I think that was the intent behind this story.  Take the slow, meandering wanderer and he eventually becomes everything he should be and thus becomes a whole person. 

Insightful and great characterizations saved this book for me.  The story was slow but I think the rest made up for it.  You have to be ‘in the mood’ for a book like this but worth discovering along the way.
