The Orchardist

The Orchardist - Amanda Coplin AuthorAmanda Coplin was born in Wenatchee, Washington. She received her BA from the University of Oregon and MFA from the University of Minnesota. A recipient of residencies from the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts, and the Omi International Arts Center at Ledig House in Ghent, New York, she lives in Portland, Oregon.ReviewOw book what have you done....."Nothing, I did nothing!"I am going to have a hard time to write a review on this book. I was looking forward to reading this cause I really like the cover and the synopsis sounded interesting too. When I started reading I had good hopes though I already caught some sounds from other people that it was not really what they expected. Though the story is pretty much what I expected it is a bit colorless. It flows steadily but without much excitement. Coplin did a great job in describing the surroundings and setting an atmosphere but her characters and their interaction was almost non existent. These two where pulling so strong at each other that I never got involved in the story or got a chance to bind with one of the characters.
