Consolations of the Forest: Alone in a Cabin in the Middle TaigaConsolations of the Forest: Alone in a Cabin in the Middle Taiga by Sylvain Tesson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Beautifully written and a temptation – to run away from it all and become a Russian woodsman!

In part, depressing as Tesson struggles with isolation, alcohol and relationships.

In the main, inspirational as he re-connects with himself.

Strange how books sometimes arrive in our lives when we need them.
