    "Marriage of Sticks" by Jonathan Carroll was a good read that really kept me interested until the end. The novel started out with a high school reunion and then it blooms out with such intriguing characters that were all so well developed only presenting great thoughts only bringing out such creativity only adding to a great read that comes out a little fantastical and even somewhat creepy read. Be prepared for there will be many surprises that are well hidden in the read. I found "Marriage of Sticks" to be 'filled with suspense, horror and even magic.' Now, you may find Mr. Carroll's "Marriage of Sticks" novel may seem somewhat confusing but if you will stick with it till the end it will all come together giving you a mind-blowing fantasy of a read.

    If you are looking for a good read that will present 'scary, funny sad, weird, and too believable, all at the same time' you have come to the right place for "Marriage of Sticks" and yes, I would recommend this read to you.

    Heavy Sticks

    Although 'The Marriage of Sticks' is Jonathan Carroll's first novel to feature supernatural plot elements in a while, it's greatness lies in dealing profoundly with the real and various ways people treat and mistreat each other.

    This is a great bookreport book!

    I am 14 years old, and I just finished reading this book for a bookreport. I loved it not only for it's content but also because of the fact that i finished it in under 4 days. It is wonderfully written and fluent, with many twists and unusual things happening all at once. In the beginning it was hard to understand, but I caught on quickly and was very surprised by the ending. This book has a lot of symbolism in it. Again, it is wonderfully well written and I assure you you will enjoy it. If you are thinking about buying this book then go for it.
