well, a place I am well acquainted with It takes place in a small town the same way that my life took place in a small town not in a surface way, not in a Hollywood way, but in a way that touches every bit of your life Not good or bad, really, justgrit and dust and gross gas stations and lots of church I appreciate that it feels effortlessly real, not like Whaley is trying to convince me that it s real It just is what it is.2 This book is about a guy sighting an extinct species of woodpecker in Lily, Arkansas Actually, it s not That is there, but it s subtext and it s delightful The reappearance of the Lazarus woodpecker stands for everything that Lily, Arkansas needs and everything that Lily, Arkansas wants Well done, Book 3 This book is actually about Cullen Witter and the day his brother Gabriel goes missing I know what you re thinking, because I was thinking it too Whatever I m not normally a terrible person okay, that s a lie, I am a terrible, jaded person but I really didn t care about Gabriel s fate when I opened this book I was not really in the mood to read a quiet book about a boy coping with his brother s disappearance In fact, before picking it up, I informed one of my friends that all I wanted to do was read a book about helicopters, guns, and magic and I didn t have a book that fit that description in my house, so I guessed I d just read this one This book had such an uphill climb in winning my affection Even when it made me laugh in the first two chapters, I resented it How dare you make me laugh, quiet book Do you have any helicopters Any guns Any magic No THAT S WHAT I THOUGHT Shut up The book did not shut up And it turned out, I didn t need any helicopters or guns or even any magic.4 There are weird chapters from other people s points of view Again, I began my dialogue with the book Book, why are you telling me these things Aren t we supposed to be in Arkansas right now Shouldn t we be going home now I am here to promise you that those chapters not only eventually make sense, but also dovetail so delightfully with the main text that I was left saying only well played, Book Well played 5 It doesn t really matter what this book is about It s a good book about a good kid and it s a good story told remarkably well In the last third, I thought there was no way that Whaley could really finish this in some way that I d both believe and like, andhe did So Well played, Book Well played what an unexpectedly delightful book.i was given an ARC of this and i looked at it and said gak biiirrrddss and figured i would read it when i got around to it after some awfully gentle prodding, i got around to it and i read the damn thing in one day, tearassing through it with great glee and awe.this book is a sad and unpredictable gem.but with plenty of moments of humor.it opens with a death by overdose and a million instances of the word ass hat a word i had never heard before bein what an unexpectedly delightful book.i was

one day, tearassing through it with great glee and awe.this book is a sad and unpredictable gem.but with plenty of moments of humor.it opens with a death by overdose and a million instances of the word ass hat a word i had never heard before being on this site, so it grabbed my attention right from the start, and i placed in that mental category of books that would never have been marketed to kids when i was a kid , when we had to read sanitized books while walking uphill both ways yadda yadda.and then it really gets going,and blossoms into two separate stories that eventually dovetail, but not in a way that is predictable this book kept playfully yanking the rug up from under my feet until it finally all came together this is great writing.the best thing about this book is that it feels like magical realism even though there is nothing decidedly magical about it.it just feels like there is something subterranean that wants to push through and release all this crazy stuff into the text, but it is just being carefully suppressed, like a laugh at a funeral there is a lingering presence of magical possibility that is felt but never revealed.mostly it is quietly sad it doesn t make a big tearful spectacle of itself, even though since the centerpiece of the story is the disappearance of a fifteen year old boy, it could have easily gone that route but its moments of sadness manifest themselves in small and understated scenes details really.again, it is very cleverly handled the only thing i wasn t crazy about was his single writer s quirk to insert paragraphs beginning with when one as in when one is lying on the floor of his bedroom exactly ten weeks and three days after his brother has vanished off the face of the earth, he begins to imagine a grandiose scene which punctuate the narrative as these little distancing techniques the narrator uses to slip into a world of fantasy, often about zombies, which is fine, but the repetition of the phrase when one is got on my reading nerves a little, like a skip in a record.but overall a charming and endearing book, and i will read any book this man ever writes, hopefully as an ARC so i can get in there before anyone else.come to my blog I CAN T EVEN This book was too good.
