I love The Yearling. I don't love the ending. I understand it, but I don't like it. The fawn was the closest thing Jody had to a best friend. The animal was his companion, his confidante. And in order to grow up, the yearling had to go. It's like destroying what you love best so that you can continue with your life. But the heart remembers. The heart, when it has loved truly, never forgets. The grown up Jody will have Flag always with him in a place that no one can get to. They will always be together. Eugenia Renskoff
what I loved about this book is the unsentimental but affectionate depiction of nature and of a vanished way of life close to nature and far removed from today's predominantly middle-class attitudes.
