A Strange, Sad Story of Ultimate Illusion
This was like no other book I had ever read before, and I could not put it down. Just like a great magician, the author has left me with a level of uncertainty about what exactly happened in the life of poor Henry Walker. How much of his life was illusion how much was real? I hesitate to give away the story--but suffice to say that a major, life altering change happens to Henry early on in his young life and the way it is presented to this boy 'who has already suffered more than his fair share of loss' alters his perception of the world from that day forward. From that moment on, his life becomes one of strange illusion and sadness and doom, one we see in bits and pieces through the eyes of those whose lives he touched. The story ended leaving me unsatisfied, and yet, expected.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
