[Legends of the Fall] may well be the best set of novellas to appear in this country during the last quarter century.” Robert Houston, New York Times Book Review
New York Times bestselling author Jim Harrison is one of America’s most beloved and critically acclaimed writers. Now available in eBook for the first time, the classic Legends of the Fall is Harrison at his most memorable: a striking collection of novellas written with exceptional brilliance and a ferocious love of life.
The title novella, Legends of the Fall”which was made into the film of the same nameis an epic, moving tale of three brothers fighting for justice in a world gone mad. Moving from the raw landscape of early twentieth-century Montana to the blood-drenched European battlefields of World War I and back again to Montana, Harrison’s powerful story explores the theme of revenge and the actions to which people resort when their lives or goals are threatened, painting an unforgettable portrait of the twentieth-century man.
Also including the novellas Revenge” and The Man Who Gave Up His Name,” Legends of the Fall confirms Jim Harrison’s reputation as one of the finest American voices of his generation.
Not what it was supposed to be
I bought this book and it states that the actual book has 999 pages, so naturally the iBook version should be longer, but there are only 436 pages, this is what I was confused on at the beginning. So I opened it and began to read, but it looks as if this is actually three excerpts of different books in one. The first is Revenge and consists of 3 chapters and an epilogue, the second is another book containing 4 chapters and an epilogue, the there's 3 chapters and an epilogue of Legends of the Fall, for which there is only about 130 pages. I scanned Legends of the Fall and I think it's mostly just an overview of the book. I am extremely disappointed about the fact that this book costs $14.99 and isn't even the real book, I want a full refund.
Don't let the other reviewers fool you
This is a novella like many other of Jim Harrison's books. Enough said. He is a amazing author!
This book is not Legends of the Fall. It's actually Revenge.
Buyer beware. The title is correct but the contents of the book is actually Revenge.
