It took me awhile to get to this novel, but it sure was a reward for me. I don't often get giddy about a book, but this one sure deserves its 5 stars. I know that it might not set well with some Seattle residents who don't want to think their city might not be perfect. But, no city is. Seattle doesn't have the flash of New York or Chicago, but has a well-deserved reputation as a clean and pleasant place to live. I think Lynch's novel conveys that well, and it creates an interesting story on the Seattle World's Fair, the growing pains of a city, the corruption which is endemic to police who are not watched over, and the need for a strong and vigilant press. It was fun to live back in 1962 for awhile- surely a much simpler time, notwithstanding the Cuban missile crisis! (That was a tongue in cheek remark. No time is really all that simple.)

After loving The Highest Tide and Border Songs, I was looking forward to Truth Like The Sun. Found myself for in to finish it. I never connected with any of it....which was disappointing as I'm of the Seattle World Fair generation. Border Songs and Highest Tide are a couple of my all time favorite books.

For those of us who lived in the Seattle area during the time of the '62 World's Fair, this would be a fascinating book. I'm not too sure how many would find it of interest who didn't live in the Pacific Northwest or have connections there or visited often. I also wonder how much of it is thinly disguised fact about Seattle politics and personalities. I was young during the World's Fair and not too informed about the political scene in Seattle but for history buffs and Seattle fans, this is a great book. I guess it would appeal to anyone who wanted to read about the evolution of a great American city.
