5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Much Happened and I Loved It August 30, 2013
Format:Paperback
Welcome to a book with no plot, no suspense, no conflict, no scary-sexy vampires, and no (thankfully,) surprise twist at the end. The book is Their Wedding Journey and the author is the forgotten American savant, William Dean Howells (1837-1920.) Howells dominated American literature between the Civil War and the Great War. He was the man most responsible for what came to be known as Literary Realism, which was a reaction to the Romantics (including my favorite author, James Fennimore Cooper, who was, let's be honest, a hopeless romantic.)
Howell's Their Wedding Journey, his first novel, might better be described as a travelogue or a sketch than a novel and you might as well understand this before you read it - nothing much happens. The story follows Basil and Isabel March on their honeymoon journey. It's sometime shortly after the Civil War and the honeymooners travel from Boston to New York and up the Hudson River and west to Rochester and Niagara Falls and along the Thousand Islands to Montreal and Quebec and south, home to Boston, going by carriage and train and boat. Basil and Isabel aren't young marrieds, he's early thirties, she's late twenties, a point Howells impresses upon us because it's important to the realist. A newlywed couple ten years younger than ours might be silly and immature, might be too caught up in themselves to notice the people and things around them and since noticing what's around them is what this book is about, Howells gives his couple an additional ten years apiece. That's realism, folks.
Did I say there was no conflict? Well, there's a lover's spat - to take a two-horse carriage or a one-horse carriage in a trip around a mountain. Isabel is for two horses, Basil is for one. Isabel wins. Excitement? How about shooting the rapids along the St. Lawrence?

This was William Howell's first attempt at writing a novel. It is boring and tedious. I would rather watch paint dry than to read this piece of travel literature again.
