Book Review: A Howl for Mayflower by Dan Gilmore
|Book Name:||A Howl for Mayflower|
The story is set with an odd mix of characters and explores human psychology on how possibly humans act and think, i.e., how it is perfectly fine to do a specific activity any way you want. What started as a slow moving book for me (except the first chapter which had a downright funny situation of an impromptu dance between a half-naked middle-aged man and an old lady having Alzheimer in the laundry room), later endeared me to such an extent that I read it slowly so as to ponder and relish the eccentric characters and romanticized descriptions. And this became my daily reading book for many days (before calling off the day).
One feels for the characters and their suffering, at the same time wanting to just set it how we consider correct. However, nothing is 100% correct and Dan Gilmore explores the moving ahead part in life suitably well. The laughter, sadness, jealousy, passion, selfishness and the unsavory moments of old, middle age and young people alike makes the book a complete package and thought-provoking.
Recommended for literature lovers and library readers from fiction category!
