    The Reserve eBook ç Hardcover reserve epub, The Reserve PDFgoodreaders seem to be down on this book as do editorial reviewers i've actually checked only the two reviews published on which i assume must be the best i can see why but me i'm not down on it i've given it three stars because i don't think it's that special and i don't care for the story much but it's a good book about something important and it's beautifully and captivatingly written goodreaders seem to be down in particular on the language of this book but it seems to me the language is its one glaring virtue i have read other russell banks and though i don't remember them well i feel innerly certain the language was vastly different; banks says in a little preface also published on con that he wrote this after having reread lots of hemingway and you can see hemingway all over the organization of the sentences and the feel of the prose
