This is an fairly good book. It's a bit simplistic in writing style and needed some critical editing to get rid of some repetitious bits (the moose hunting rituals for example; we got it the first time!! no need to explain the whole mindfulness thing every time you shoot a moose!).
I'm a bit surprised it's not classified as youth fiction and it is written at a pretty basic level; not a criticism necessarily, but it's a pretty easy, fast read and would be a good read for junior high school students for example.
As for the plot; it's an interesting twist on a oft-told subject, seen from different eyes though. I did like that the narrator wasn't a completely sympathetic figure and admitted to flaws. The "villain" was an almost cartoonishly dastardly dude, not really much nuance there!
Still, an enjoyable and light read.
