Tall tales and family myths lead a man to discover the man behind the legend: his father. Heartwarming, a sad and funny novel that will have you thinking about the family stories that structured your life.

I love the writing style and the structure of this book. It is an easy read, but still very enjoyable, entertaining, and unique.

If you like mythical and literary allusions, you will enjoy this book as much as I did. If you don't care for fantasy or magical realism, you may not fall for the tall tales that the father tells his son, but you may recognize the type of person who loves to exaggerate and who has a vivid imagination.

This is the story of a boy's "view" of his father and overall, it just wasn't as good as all the hype.
