5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant like a box of delights!, 15 Jan 2009
This review is from: The Accidental Tourist (Mass Market Paperback)
This is a wonderful read. Why do I say this? Well as a somewhat jaded reader I got the book after enjoying the film and guess what the book is better. the film was terrific so it's up against some pretty stiff competition. What you have is a wonderful idea of an author who hates travel writing books for people who travel but the twist is he has had an absolute life changing, mortifying event in his life. That of his young son dying. The central character is so well rounded together with his wacky siblings (and for once the term wacky is an understatement).
This is an absolute delight to read you really enjoy immensing yourself in this wonder tale as it unfurls and delights.
The old phrase, 'you'll laugh, you'll cry you'll cheer' really seems apt here. I must apologise for my not being able to find the words to describe this enchanting book that when you finish it will be with regret rather than the relief some less satisfying tomes engender.
