    This collection of essays on NC just didn't do it for me. Mr. Thompson is a good writer and many of his descriptions were wonderful. These essays were written for Our State Magazine, I believe, and while they are fine, they are also predictable. Each one is approximately the same length...I get it...it has to be a specific amount for publication. But, the pattern he sticks to wore thin easily. Great openings, some details surrounding the basic gist of the story, then an abrupt ending followed by This collection of essays on NC just didn't do it for me. Mr. Thompson is a good writer and many of his descriptions were wonderful. These essays were written for Our State Magazine, I believe, and while they are fine, they are also predictable. Each one is approximately the same length...I get it...it has to be a specific amount for publication. But, the pattern he sticks to wore thin easily. Great openings, some details surrounding the basic gist of the story, then an abrupt ending followed by a punchline. Once I noticed this pattern, that's all it became to me. I would definitely like to read more of his work, maybe some things that give him the chance to go into the detail that he's very good at writing.
