After dinner I started over, and had the singular pleasure of reading it aloud to Asha. Blackwood's prose is generally easy to read aloud -- though there are some deeply convoluted passages. It took about 90 minutes to cover the 24 pages. I must say that's one damn fine Wendigo story. I think that my favorite line is "The silence of the vast listening forest stole forward and enveloped them."
Reading aloud: highly recommended.
