The Outermost House: A Year of Life On The Great Beach of Cape Cod by Henry Beston


Three stars.

A required reading for my English class, this book isn't my cup of tea. It's very poetic, and the author did a good job of painting a landscape with his words, but I found The Outermost House to be incredibly boring. Almost everything is a contradiction, almost every chapter has to do with birds and sand, and there aren't enough people mentioned for my liking. It put me in mind of Walden, which isn't one of my favorite books either.

If, however, you did like Walden, you probably will enjoy this book, so check it out.
