I finsihed reading Being Henry David by Cal Armistead, last night. I have to agree with Tara over at The Librarian Who Doesn’t Say Shh…., this book is a little hard to categorize and will leave you wanting just a tad bit more. Having said that, it is still a good book and I will definately recomend it to others. I originally purchased the book to share with my Step-son, but I ended up reading it first. He will read the whole thing in a day, so I don’t feel too bad for making him wait two days before turning it over to him.
This book is about a teenage boy named Hank, or Henry David depending on who he is interating with. He wakes up at Penn Station with only Henry David Thureau’s book, Walden at his side and no memory of how he arrived at that spot. This book with take you through his journey to figure out how and why he is in his current predicament. He meets some interesting and inspirational people along the way. Well they inspired me, at least. The ending isn’t quite what I expected and it definately left me wanting to know more. So maybe we can expect a short story that will tie the ending into a nice neat bow for us?!?!? Probably not, but a girl can hope can’t she?
This book is an easy read. Not a suspensful page turner but your interest will definately be peeked and keep you wanting to read more.
On to the next book…….
