Review by: Roger R. Fernandez on Nov. 23, 2010 : (no rating)
Some five years ago, Alfonso Morales, professor at Los Angeles City College reviewed this book. He wrote in part:

Odyssey Resumed is a sequel to Odyssey to Opportunity, the author’s initial run of his autobiographical trilogy. It constitutes a summary of experiences and personal life episodes, a journal of travels and a history of a cultural pilgrimage without the religious emphasis that such a concept might imply...

Fernández’ life-long interest in culture continues to take him to extensive traveling back and forth to his native region and to other societies such as the Philippines, China, Alaska and Canada. The accounts of those trips exhibit a flow of historic, geographical, descriptive and pictorial details of the places he visits, as well as autobiographical sketches and contemplative and reflective analysis…

In this book, the author never loses sight of his basic frenzy for traveling that from childhood captivated him and now in this narrative has become, not only some kind of historical and geographical tourism, but also a stable and persevering tourism of literature that includes some of his own poetry. He also reminds the reader of authors of other various and diverse cultures, some very far away, in order to initiate a simple conversation with literature. This way, the author tries to fulfill his double purpose to inform entertaining and to entertain informing. Ultimately, he tries to teach openness and inspires to provoke “a disposition to snatch a lesson from life”…”
