Talk about opening lines! This book catches your attention right away! I honestly recommend not reading many details about it before you begin – let the story surprise you as you join Edgar Mint’s unusual journey into adulthood.
As unusual as the story is, the main draw here is the writing, the skillful storytelling. I’m looking forward to reading other books by Udall, there were passages that caused me to pause for a minute and think about how they were written.
My only complaint is that book is too long, especially the middle part which seemed to go beyond what was needed to serve the story line.
Miracle lives seem to be a popular theme, but don’t pass up on writing like this.
