If you enjoyed Enger’s writing in “Peace Like a River”, you will enjoy “Virgil Wander”. The characters and the writing are the point. The plot is vague and ebbs and flows without a complete resolution. Enger likes to add a touch of magical realism to his almost fairy-tale like stories.
|High octane action and imagination to spare as the Author pulls from current day issues to set the stage for her apocalyptic mayhem. Great fun.|
I am always leery of “funny” books because I rarely find them to be as hilarious as everyone else. However, this one lived up to the billing. When a group of unteachable kids meet up with a burned out, ready for retirement teacher, sparks fly. Sweet and just wonderful.
The illustrations are charming and the story is just fabulous. Pick it up…no matter your age.
