Not for the proselytizers among us, but for those who will be intrigued by an Orwellian America ruled from the pulpit, Attwood's Rabbletown won't dissappoint.
Crazy About You
on Jan. 05, 2012
Coming of age in small town America in the mid-60's is not a new theme, but coming of age on a funny farm in small town America is. Attwood's story combines the reality of his experiences as a youth with a vividly imagined and developed fictional story that is at once riotous, nostalgic, and entertaining. This novel will appeal to more than just those of us who grew up in the community Attwood describes. This novel is not "politically correct" with respect to the storyline involving some of the mental patients, but as the sister of a person plagued with long term mental illness, I can tell you that I was not personally offended--just surprised. Fast paced and a page-turner, reads like a movie.
