    Different kind of story! Great!

    This is a story about a mute child who has extra super hearing. Hee feels and senses things about people, rocks, everything in his world. There are family secrets, voodoo, the spirit of a dead father interacting with his son. This could have been a bummer of a book, but instead it has a special spark. I read a LOT, but never have read such an unusual but riveting story. So, just suspend reality for a bit and sit down with this really very special book!

    Magical

    I loved the style of writing in this book. The characters were well-developed, and the writing was lyrical, so much so that I found myself re-reading sentences over and over because of the charm of the words.

    Haven't read this book yet, but the reviews remind me of "Perfume" by Patrick Suskind. This is a great book set in 17th Century Paris. The main character was born under difficult circumstances and not expected to live but does. He has a heighten sense of smell -- smells which lead to murder. Well written and all consuming novel. I will read "The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow" and hope it is as sensational as "Perfume". Since I have not read this book yet, I can only guess at my rating of said book.

    Delightful read. A beautiful melding of prose and poetry... I would give it 5 stars but felt that the initial energy lagged a bit toward the end.
