Hunters in The Snow Reaction


You Can Tell By the Way they Walk they Walk…

Well, they are not exactly ladies’ men. They don’t have trendy names like Jacob and Edward. They don’t have abs like Beckham or moves like Mick Jagger. Tub, Frank, and Kenny decide to go on a hunting trip. It is no surprise that their personalities are repulsive and rather than talking about how they feel about life they discuss “a bunch of hippie bullshit.” So why should anyone read this story? Well, if you do not mind losing a good 20 minutes of your life you can never get back this is a good tale. Long story short, Kenny gets frustrated with hunting. Kenny starts shooting stationary things he does not like to show how macho he is. Kenny shoots a tree and also a dog. Kenny shoots the dog right between the eyes. Kenny has a good shot at domesticated animals. So anyway Tub realizes that Kenny is being a complete moron and decides to shoot Kenny. They get lost finding the hospital so we can assume Kenny dies. Like the Dixie Chicks song “Goodbye Earl,” I think Kenny was a missing person that nobody really missed. What can we learn from this story? Use a GPS they are cheap! Paintball guns are a better idea for people that are not in the top 20 percentile of intelligence. Kenny mentions “…you’re so busy thinking about that little jailbait of yours you wouldn’t know a deer if you saw one.” That just tells you how repulsive these guys are. Birds of a feather flock together and you are guilty by association are the best things that are illustrated in this story. This tale is worth reading thoroughly. Tobias Wolff is a really intriguing writer, and this story will blow your mind. It is easier to follow than inception, but still really intriguing. If you are Japanese, be fair warned that this story is a bit racially off color (no pun intended.) Overall, it is not a complete waste of time.


About Trish Reznick

Writer. Pessimistic optimist. News junkie. I write real estate advertising pieces, but my heart's in music journalism. To make the real estate biz more exciting I put music references in to a good percentage of my writings. I guess you could call me a liberal. I have an extensive record collection and I prefer them over MP3s any day... unless that particular day I plan on leaving my apartment. Considering I'm an extrovert, that is quite frequently. I'm a scorpio...which is a nice way of saying I have intense mood swings... I thought that was just called being a chick.
