    1. Third book down for the #BookTubeAThon! I think this would have worked better in longer form, as it felt way too rushed. This was a very character driven story, but I feel like I didn't get to know the characters all that well. I'm excited to watch the movie tonight! updateSo I watched the movie, and it was a very good adaptation of the story! Many direct quotes from the story were used, and it followed the exact same plot but fleshed it out a lot more. Not the most exciting movie of all time, b [...]


    2. The shirt seemed heavy until he saw there was another shirt inside it, the sleeves carefully worked down inside Jack’s sleeves. It was his own plaid shirt, lost, he’d thought, long ago in some damn laundry, his dirty shirt, the pocket ripped, buttons missing, stolen by Jack and hidden here inside Jack’s own shirt, the pair like two skins, one inside the other, two in one.Sometimes, I want to cry.When I hear of cases of gay adolescents and adults who commit suicide because they are harassed [...]


    3. Normally, I would never read something like this. No, I am not homophobic (my older brother is gay); but I do get uncomfortable when reading about two men kissing. So, needless to say, I wasn't expecting much from this very short novella. Let me be the first to say how utterly wrong I was. This novella is not merely about two men who fall in love; it is about love itself. The love story these men share is intense, stormy, beautiful, and heart-wrenching, and I found myself thankful that I have on [...]


    4. Annie Proulx is one of the foremost American writers today. Her novel The Shipping News won the Pulitzer Prize, and her latest novel Barkskins seems to have been written in the same vain. As I am drawn to Pulitzer winners in my ongoing personal challenge to read them, I decided to sample Proulx's writing before undergoing the reading of one of her full length novels. Brokeback Mountain set high in the Rockies and later made into a movie of the same name was originally published in the New Yorker [...]


    5. I picked this up at the library last night because it was a tiny book, perfect for today's lunch time read.I'm ashamed to say that I attempted to watch the film, but fell asleep about 45 minutes in. Now that I've read this story, I'm going to revisit the film.This is the first time I've read Annie Proulx. It is amazing how much story she covers in so few pages. Her spare prose, concise style and quiet intensity really worked for me. An absolutely beautiful, heartbreaking love story! Makes me wan [...]



    6. I saw Brokeback Mountain when I was quite young (my mom changed channels when a sex scene came on like she always did) and I have to say, it sorta blew my mind. Gay was not a word I heard, unless someone in my class was teasing someone or something. I grew up in the Irish countryside so I was quite sheltered until I was at least 15/16 (hmm, same year we got Wi-Fi). But as a 12 year old, to be "gay" meant something bad and dirty and I never understood why. Nobody could give me an acceptable answe [...]


    7. That's fine. I didn't need my heart anyway. This book is like a punch in the gut. I never thought that a short story could have such an impact on me. This isn’t simply a book about two cowboys falling in love: this is the heartbreaking tale of Jack and Ennis who love each other, but deny it not only because they’re afraid of the outside world, but also of their own feelings. America in the 1960’s wasn’t a safe place for homosexuals after all, and if society can’t accept them, how can t [...]



    8. I read this in the collection Close Range: Brokeback Mountain and Other stories, which I reviewed HERE.I knew this exquisite story well from the film, and the two are very similar. It is a story of unexpected and irresistible passion, longing and loss - understated and never graphic. Jack and Ennis meet, lust and love one summer, and meet up over the years, despite starting more conventional families. "The brilliant charge of their infrequent couplings was darkened by the sense of time flying, n [...]


    9. I'm fucking terrified that yesterday will mean a lackadaisicaling of today, wherein a legal, incorporated, minute change of one of many laws interwoven in the Hetereosexual Agenda banishes the rest to the "what more could you need?" closet and the society spectacle incineration. This work has been termed apolitical by some, but seriously, how can you call a history of human sacrifice apolitical? Not even dwelling on the money, status, and human network so often illegally amputated and afterwards [...]


    10. ***NO SPOILERS***“Gay cowboy love story” may be how it’s often summed up, but that’s flippant. Brokeback Mountain is emotional, resonant, and ultimately gut-wrenching--and quietly so. This is a humble story, tightly focused almost exclusively on young Wyoming cowboys Ennis and Jack as they spend a summer working together on Brokeback Mountain. Before long they’re forced to reconcile their love for each other with their everyday, conventional, socially acceptable lives. What’s most po [...]


    11. This novel is surprisingly short . . . which makes it difficult to rate the book unbiasedly :-/ I found myself replaying the (exceptional) movie in my mind the entire time. . . . . . . . . . . Now please excuse my while I imagine this scene over and over again #neednewovaries


    12. This story is every bit as compelling, heart wrenching and beautiful as everyone claims. A true masterpiece of short fiction. Update 8/10/16My mind is still reeling with thoughts of Ennis and Jack; the story was simply intimate and heart breaking. It's amazing how much power and weight words can carry with them. Works like Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton and "Brokeback Mountain" by Annie Proulx have taught me that it's about quality, not quantity. Frankly, any author that can move me to tears in le [...]


    13. I never really had any intention of reading this book. I've never seen the movie either. (Though I might now. I'm curious how they handled it.) Stories about ranchers & cowboys don't exactly draw me in. To be honest, Annie Proulx's stories don't have much appeal to me in general. I can't really put my finger on it, but they just don't scream "Read me!" when I see one. Anyway, I had to go to the library to stop them from billing me for a book I'd already returned, and while I was there, I hap [...]



    14. I enjoyed reading the short story two weeks ago and finally had the opportunity to see the movie. I was concerned about the film staying true to the short story in terms of characterization and atmosphere. The reading was enjoyable; I didn’t want to sour the memory of it by an unfulfilling movie. I was pleasantly surprised. Director Ang Lee and screen writers Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana did a brilliant job of interpreting and synchronizing the original text into a script. I honestly feel t [...]


    15. This short story is about the choices we make, and the consequences we have to live with.I haven't watched 'Brokeback Mountain', though I've been meaning to for years now. I'm not a big movie-watcher, so it always gets pushed back. But I am a big reader, so I thought I might as well read the short story that inspired the movie.Ennis and Jack's romance isn't pretty. It's a reflection of the time and place they were living in. The two are mean to each other, and to the women they married. Yet they [...]


    16. 3 stars (:Its really impressive how some authors could write a whole story in just a few pagesUnfortunately, I have seen some spoilers before reading the book and knew the ending, but it still affected me :( Eventhough I had some serious problems with this book, I liked it :DI havent seen the movie, but I have a feeling that if I do, I will like it more than the book :)Sorry


    17. 4 Heartfelt Stars! ----GAWD, Jack and Ennisey love so hard. The book, the message IMO, was about homophobia. And it was a bitch to read. (view spoiler)[I hated Jack's dad, what a mother fuc*king prick. He was homophobic asshole. Because, as said in this book he knew. And somehow Jack must have told him his plan to test it out. He also must have told him the tire-iron story in jest or to see what his dad would think. Jack and his last argument with Ennis proved that he felt he needed to solve the [...]


    18. This is a short story, sixty four pages, but Annie Proulx crafted a heck of a story in sixty four pages. The characters, even the minor ones, are described so vividly that ever detail is burned into your mind. The same with the setting, the back ranges of rugged Wyoming and the small cowboy towns, place you right in the middle of Ennis and Jack's existence. The story, as most people know from the movie, is about the love these two young men find with one another. Even though they are both marrie [...]


    19. Sometimes words come together in ways that twist knives you didn't know you still had in your gut.Proulx achieves this with a stark economy (tautology almost, but I wanted both words) that leaves you both breathless and on the verge of hyperventilation.It's been long since I had such a visceral reaction to the written word.I wanted it to last longer. And at the same time, I can't see how it could have.Exquisite!


    20. Update: Today, I finally sat down and watched the movie based on this short story. Wow, just wow. The movie was beautifully shot, with strong performance from Heath Ledger as Ennis del Mar and Jake Gyllenhaal as Jack Twist. The breathtaking scenery of Wyoming, especially of Brokeback Mountain, and those chubby, cutie sheep add so much poetry to a truthful but forbidden love story.I must admit, when I read the story, I really didn’t know how director Ang Lee could transform 55 pages of words in [...]


    21. I read this recently for an LGBT book club. What can I say, I didn't like it. (I have seen the movie and didn't like that either.) This is the story of two young men in the west in the sixties who have a love affair while tending sheep one summer. This affair continues for many years, until one of the characters is brutally killed. According to one of the blurbs on the back of the book Brokeback Mountain "Abolishes the Old West cliches". Perhaps, but it does nothing to abolish the tired old gay [...]


    22. 4.5 - Short reviewA little book of about 30 pages that covers a lifetime - Annie Proulx has a way with words with her compact, precise, to the point sentences. This story of Ennis and Jack, two cowboys, who fall in love, is gut-wrenching and a sure punch in the face to all the homophobes and society in general. Annie has managed to give out the exact emotions, without going overboard with the scenes. The dilemma that these lovers face, hasn't changed a bit since the story was written in 1997. We [...]


    23. I've never seen the movie of this, so I went in with no preconceptions, and I loved it. It was beautiful, tender and oh-so heartbreaking, and the writing was exquisite. I listened to the audiobook, narrated by Campbell Scott, and would thoroughly recommend it.


    24. The words flow so easily, whether it's the dialogue or the description in between. Such a beautiful, fully-formed little story that conveys so much emotion in its barely-fifty-plus pages. Read it in one sitting after stumbling across it at the shop this afternoon and loved it.


    25. «Ojalá supiera cómo renunciar a tí.» Me sorprendió mucho la forma tan linda de escribir de Annie Proulx. Es poético y muy específico al mismo tiempo. Todo en esta historia corta ocurre rápido, como el paso de los años. Eso sin embargo no nos va a impedir sufrir. Están avisados.Esta es la historia de Jack Twist y Ennis del Mar, dos cowboys pastores de ovejas (¿o sheepboys?) que se conocen por accidente gracias a un trabajo en Brokeback Mountain. Entre ellos surge una atracción que lo [...]


    26. This book was chosen for me in the 'pick it for me challenge' in the m/m romance group here on . It's a classic (or should be), I saw the movie years ago, and I was amazed how short the book is.This is one of the most well written stories I have ever read. In places, it is more like a sketch than a painting. And yet it describes the main characters and their awful dilemma and, ultimately, suffering in such clear pictures that it broke my heart all over again.This is one of the few "tragedies" th [...]


    27. Awww….Hell. The quiet crush of depression creeps up on you with this one. At first, I was wondering about all the fuss as the the first third of the story laid out. By the midsection, the road ahead was pretty obvious, but didn't take any of the wallop out of the end. Bloody, Motherfuckin', God-Damned Sonnabitch!Two men with no clue how to get what they really want and wasting time until there ain't no more.
