    One thought on “The Storm”

    1. Sometimes you read a book and upon finishing it you squeal a little squeal, cry a little tear, sigh a little sigh, each in complete contentment Then immediately you want to read it again That s how I felt about The Storm.It s the quietly told story of Kenzie Maxwell, a man of nearly 70, thrice married and kinda of shiftless He s had some late success as a writer But the story is about the past and his group of loosely related relatives.Twenty years ago, while working at a shelter for teenagers [...]

    2. Well, I got about half way through and had to put it down Perhaps there is a redemption scene at the end but the way to get there is dull.

    3. Buechner is a gifted writer and theologian This book is creative, funny, honest, and thought provoking It shows us characters laid bare in their imperfections OCD ish rigidity, greed, grudge holding, lust, and fear to name a few But Buechner also combines, even within those same foible fraught characters, the triumph of virtue, love, family, courage, and the pursuit of truth If I was an English Prof, I d have my students in this book yearly It s a hidden gem, folks check it out.

    4. What makes a novel amazing Have you ever truly asked yourself that I think in part is remembering it When a story stays with you over time you know that it was truly a winner The Storm, A Novel by Buechner I read in 1998 right after I was first married in the 90 s At the time I had mono and this book had become one of those that I read during my resting in bed stretch along with The Reader, The End of the Affair and many others Small, delightful and incredibly personal You feel as if you are ins [...]

    5. This is one of my favorite books I have read to date Buechner s story is a soul salve, a heart massage The beauty of this short work is simple and profound This novel rings so truth, plumbing the depths of the human experience Buechner exposes the humanity of his characters, and in so doing exposes himself I finished The Storm with tears in my eyes only then realizing how much of myself had been exposed in the reading.

    6. I m on a bit of a Buechner kick right now I was tired a while back of reading meaningless, fluffy books So, order some Buechner through the local library Always challenging to read and thought provoking This one is the first novel of his that I ve read, rather than essays or other non fiction The story focuses on Kenzie, an author, and his life He s not exactly your likable character, but real, in all of the mistakes of life Most of the characters are flawed, real humans The grace of God through [...]

    7. We are such stuff as dreams are made on and our little life is rounded with a sleep ShakespeareFor anyone who wants a solid but gentle introduction to Frederick Buechner, The Storm is a great jumping off pointd when it comes to Buechner, jumping off is an appropriate metaphorOn his website, Buechner s writing is said to have seven primary pillars or themes these include Listening to Your Life , Faith Despite Doubt , Hope Through Grace , Searching for Meaning , Our Shared Story , Meaning of Chris [...]

    8. My first Buechner It was a wonderful read I found the characters believable and complex enough to be interesting I like the fact that they didn t all come to Jesus, though the grace of Christ was present throughout.

    9. The Storm was a good book Kenzie and his brother Dalton have not seen each other in two decades due to a transgression that Kenzie made, but Dalton worsened.Now, Kenzie celebrates his seventieth birthday and reminisces on that one transgression and brings a group of people along with him to tell the story The array of different characters that the author describes made it a fun read and made me drop my guard on predicting what could be next.I enjoyed the author s ability to tell a story within t [...]

    10. It takes a lot of nerve to update Shakespeare and I m sure there have been failed attempts in the past But Frederick Buechner takes it one step further and not only updates The Tempest, but adds a Christian element to it as well Well, what you do you expect from a Presbyterian minister who is as comfortable with fiction as he is theology and has a sense of humor to boot.The Storm uses Shakespeare s play as the basis, but Buechner avoids trying to recreate the scenario item by item Considering th [...]

    11. title The Storm author Frederick BuechnerSometimes you read a book and upon finishing it you squeal a little squeal, cry a little tear, sigh a little sigh, each in complete contentment Then immediately you want to read it again That s how I felt about The Storm.It s the quietly told story of Kenzie Maxwell, a man of nearly 70, thrice married and kinda of shiftless He s had some late success as a writer But the story is about the past and his group of loosely related relatives.Twenty years ago, [...]

    12. In The Storm Buechner paraphrases Shakespeare s The Tempest, taking like Shakespeare himself frequently did a well known story and redrawing its outline with his own particular flourishes There is a strong, consistent tension in the novel as it dances between parallels to the play that it is modeled on and this other, contemporary context that Buechner has invented for his tale He writes so well that constantly we re sucked in, believing in the independence of these characters and their world An [...]

    13. I ve used quotes by Buechner but have never read one of his books I think I tried once When I came across this little number at the library, it looked like a good place to start The Storm is about how one man s mistep into scandal changed the direction of his and his brother s life He fell in love with a teenager who died while giving birth to his son His reputation was destroyed when his brother, who lives a life of black and white, released a note of apology to the press They haven t spoken si [...]

    14. After almost a two decade love of Frederick Buechner, I picked up another of his novels I listed some of his books in Books that changed me and the way I think I rank his autobiographical trilogy The Sacred Journey, Now and Then, and Telling Secrets with the likes of Thomas Merton s The Seven Story Mountain.I love the way that Buechner writes, the pictures he paints, and the characters he builds and the stories he tells, because for Buechner it is the story that is so important And although I wo [...]

    15. This was a little book that I enjoyed after finding Frederick Buechner quotes in The Ragamuffin Gospel and Brennan Manning s other books It is a novel with some complex family dynamics an insights Buechner is a storyteller and has the ability to write from the perspective of several characters at the same time I am looking forward to the rest of his books I have a pile right here by m chair If you Google the author, there is a 30 minute interview done by some students in 2003 that you might find [...]

    16. 70 year old Kenzie and his 80 year old brother Dalton haven t spoken in 20 years Kenzie was working at a halfway house which Dalton was on the board of directors of when Kenzie got a young homeless girl pregnant Kia had the baby but died giving birth 20 years later the family is getting together on an island off Florida for Kenzie s 70th birthday Many different characters will be attending and you get a glimpse at all they have going on in their lives Dalton happens to be on the island on Kenzie [...]

    17. This is the type of novel that is a slow burn Buechner takes the time to lay a rich groundwork of setting and characterization before the plot moves forward, but this groundwork pays off in spades and this book is actually fairly short He writes in a way that is gripping, but not in a page turning way, of a heart wrenching, deeply soul satisfying kind of way.I actually knew very little about The Tempest before I picked this one up, but if you like deliberately paced, thoughtful fiction or if yo [...]

    18. While the story wasn t much in this book, the characters were beautifully painted It just took me a few hours to read this little book and I m so glad that I did I didn t realize until after reading it that it was a re telling of The Tempest, but that makes it even interesting to me.This came highly recommended to me by a big fan of Buechner, who I had never read before I have another of his Sons of Laughter waiting for me as well and I can see myself really getting into his writing style.

    19. There was probably a lot to this book than I got out of it I haven t read The Tempest in a very long time, and this story was supposed to be something of a modern version of that, so I missed all those parallels However, despite the nagging sense that the story was much deeper than my ability to focus and think carefully, I still appreciated the writing style, the characters, and some of the themes presented Watching reconciliation and forgiveness play among the characters out made those ideas [...]

    20. I have enjoyed the works of Frederick Buechner, and looked forward to this retelling of Shakespeare s The Tempest, but actually found it to be rather dull and bland.The set up and history of Kenzie and Kia was interesting, and the characters throughout were interesting Buechner writes his characters idiosyncracies so well But the plot failed to interest me Is it because I already knew what would happen Or was it because he was trying so hard to stay true to the Shakespearean story Hard to say On [...]

    21. I immensely enjoyed this tale of family love, betrayal and eventual redemption The main character, Kenzie, is a writer who has lived quite well with a succession of wealthy wives He has escaped New York and a scandal from his youth and now lives on an exclusive island in south Florida With his 70th birthday approaching, he comes face to face with the daughter of his scandal, his estranged brother and assorted local characters A tempest in the ocean conspires to toss them all together and makes p [...]

    22. The Storm is a play on Shakespeare s Tempest Within the modern setting of NYC and an island off of Florida, we have a cast of characters that push the reader into thoughts about family, redemption, scandal, and intimacy Unsurprisingly, considering the author, the book doesn t tread lightly Deep and mysterious theological questions are raised by characters struggling to live and find what matters.

    23. Having never read Shakespeare s The Tempest , I m sure I am missing an element to this story that might further enhance it As it is though, it is an excellent character study of fragmented lives their prejudices, hopes and aspirations The storm is the catalyst that brings them all together, giving them a new appreciation for each other and a new sense of hope and purpose redemption, as it were.

    24. beautifully written A sort of modern day version of Shakespeare s The Tempest Favorite quotes Peace is the presence of the Almighty There is also a lovely, heart wrenching depiction of first love was their having those two early lost loves in common that constituted the strongest bond that there was between them Another quote Nothing is entirely black Not even the human heart Maybe not even my own.

    25. This short novel is based loosely on Shakespeare s The Temptest Buechner is a big fan of Bill Here he tells a great little story of loss and redemption Buechner s books always have autobiographical morsels in them, and this one s no different Two wonderful passages stand out in my mind A great summer read at about 175 pages.

    26. Some beautiful moments in here Kind of a world weary look at relationship and selfhood It felt a little bit melodramatic at parts, but well rendered, sympathetic characters overall, and Buechner s strong understand of the relationship between desire and regret in the human psyche.Not as transcendent as his historical novels, but still better than most.

    27. I was disappointed Godric, by Buechner is one of my favorite books, but this just didn t do it for me I felt like the characters were a bit clich That said, the book is based on The Tempest, which I have never read Maybe someone who likes Shakespeare would be a better judge of the books merits.

    28. This was a very well written novel with excellent character development I was drawn in to the people and their relationship to each other So why the lower rating The romantic in me wants a nice tidy ending with all the lose ends tied with a bow.

    29. I discovered Frederick Buechner many years ago The impact on me and on my sense of spirituality was and remains profound If you have not read any of his work yet, don t wait another day If you have, put this one on your shelf to begin tomorrow.
