[Novel] Deliverance (James Dickey)


An unlucky journey to the wild finds a group of city-dwellers fighting for their lives and discovering things they never knew about themselves.

Positive: Negative:
Descriptive, evocative prose Not the most groundbreaking or unthinkable story in the world
Interesting, relatively profound characters
Relatively enthralling plot
Thought-provoking on the animal side of mankind


One thought on “[Novel] Deliverance (James Dickey)

  1. Hmm. I just read this two months ago. Critics for both the novel and the movie claimed this was representative of the 60s and 70s, when man was utterly fascinated about his still-existing feral side.
