Great minds ...

... I see that Patrick Kurp isn't exactly thrilled with The Reserve, either. I also see that Patrick also makes the Natty Bumppo connection. I would have to agree that, while there is a lot of description in Banks's book, much of it well-written, it doesn't tend to conjure anything particularly specific about the Adirondacks. I don't know them anywhere near as well as Patrick, but I have hiked there.
As one of Patrick's readers notes, Sven Birkerts disagrees with Patrick and me. But Michiko agrees! So there.
