This is a really neat story, kind of an adult fairy tale, life lessons type book. I like how the good and bad of people, life, religions, societies, social classes are shown. The main point in my opinion is acceptance, forgiveness and facing the truth.Bonaventure would come to know that life is no...

This is a book that is impossible to read quickly. Every sentence needs to be ingested as you would a favourite desert that is meant to be savoured. I dare you not to fall in love with young Bonaventure Arrow, whose innocence and kindness comes across on every page. So, so good.
