Book Review
This unabridged audio version of Cold Mountain, read by author Charles Frazier, deserves at least as much acclaim as the bestselling print edition, which won the National Book Award. The tale chronicles a Confederate army deserter's search for home and love in the last days of the Civil War.

Much has been made of the story's homage to The Odyssey, the origins of which are found in an oral tradition. One can't help but hear echoes of Homer when listening to Frazier's soft, deliberate voice give life to his lyrical writing and to his understated, yet convincing rendering of the overwhelming events of war. Both Frazier's prose and reading are leisurely, recalling a slow foot pace. His delivery is uniquely suited to Innman's arduous, adventure-filled walk toward home and to the possibility of a reunion with Ada, the woman he...

Praise for Cold Mountain:

Cold Mountain is written with the striding, casual confidence of an experienced craftsman – it’s lush, poetic, moving and artfully exciting. . . . Perhaps the most eloquent writing about the awful drudgery and desperation
of the Civil War since Thomas Keneally’s Confederates. . . . A heightened, thrilling love story. . . . A great read.”
The Globe and Mail

“Frazier is exemplary . . . the recreation, or imitation of Inman’s vanished world is eerily good. . . . A vivid and engrossing story.”
–Philip Marchand, Toronto Star

“Astonishing . . . a page-turner that attains the status of literature.”
Newsweek

“A story that seems at times to rise to...

Book Review
The hero of Charles Frazier's beautifully written and deeply-imagined first novel is Inman, a disillusioned Confederate soldier who has failed to die as expected after being seriously wounded in battle during the last days of the Civil War. Rather than waiting to be redeployed to the front, the soul-sick Inman deserts, and embarks on a dangerous and lonely odyssey through the devastated South, heading home to North Carolina, and seeking only to be reunited with his beloved, Ada, who has herself been struggling to maintain the family farm she inherited. Cold Mountain is an unforgettable addition to the literature of one of the most important and transformational periods in American history.

Cold Mountain: A Portrait of the Film

From Publishers Weekly
Frazier's mythic novel about a wounded Confederate soldier's return to his sweetheart in the mountains of western North Carolina achieved critical and popular acclaim, and the film version of it promises to be one of this winter's biggest movies. This book explains how the film's directors, producers, actors, designers and other collaborators made the transition from page to screen, using period illustrations, movie stills, passages from the screenplay and interviews with the cast and crew. In his introduction, director Anthony Minghella describes how he and his crew struggled to replicate the novel's focus on nature while they were filming in Romania; he also deprecates the process of adaptation: "Beautiful stories are plundered, seemingly in the most perverse ways." Yet the filmmakers' painstaking attention to...
