How do you write a book review without using hyperbole when it is the best book you’ve read for a long time? there, I just did it… Should you use tidbits of personal connection to the book’s characters, setting and social milieu to accentuate or perhaps justify one’s affinity to the aforementioned? In short, how do you write a review in the face of such insurmountable greatness? there, I did it again.
I could start by reconstituting the plot and boiling down the characters to their essentials and move them around in this Edit box, simulating in a most finite way what the author has already done. But I can’t.
What I can offer in this book review is my impression of the main character whose name I’ve forgotten (but that is epherema). There is a bit of Jesus about him and like the man himself, he walks amongst us, the depraved of soul with only respect and kind words. Well, except maybe for his ex-girlfriend whose tyres he slashes.
Please read the book and revel in a modern-day Garden of Earthly Delights via Sydney’s Golden Mile.
Have I given anything away?
