This is the kind of novel readers can spend weeks discussing—the philosophical and moral nature of it as well as its fatalistic sense of justice ... the reader may be rooting for Caleb, having been drawn to him because of his youth and the way he’s bared his soul and his hopes in so many eloquent speeches ... For a long time to come, All Things Left Wild will linger in the memory of all who read it—the tragedy, the hope, and the irony of it all.
This book is about courage, mistakes, and inner morals. It has adventure and passion. This being set back at the beginning of the twentieth century made it very interesting and exciting to read, although it did seem a little slow and unhurried at times. It also gives you an inside look at what men and women struggled with during that time. The author did a good job describing the emotions the characters were going through, making it very easy to connect ... All in all, I do recommend reading this book.
