    Has anyone out there been reading any of David Vann's work? I recently read 'Goat Mountain' and wondered what other people thought of it. I thought it was raising issues about adult versus child responsibility for situations, such as: at what age should children be held fully responsible for their actions? The descriptions of the natural world and claustrophobia of the novel were two things I particularly enjoyed.

    On another note I read Stoner by John Williams. I recommended it to my brother, who read it and said the book was just about a loser. This was not my impression at all, I thought it was one of the best novels I have read for a while. What do people out there think?
