The book is written in vignettes, which is good for reading in emails. There was a lot of description and set-up at first, which I find a bit dull, but Willa Cather managed to show the landscape, one I've never been to, very realistically. Admittedly, My Antonia doesn't quite have a plot, but each installment adds more richness to the pleasant story.

My Antonia was not for me. Not terribly artfully written, it was not helped by a fairly boring, prosaic narrative. If Willa Cather is a great writer, she did not prove it by this book, though I'm willing to give her a chance with one of her others . . . Just not right now.
