I was so excited to read this book - I actually bought it:) It did not disappoint either. The firs Malone book I read was strange- although I did grow to love the characters and the adventure they were on. The Four Corners of the Sky was great! I loved the characters from the first page and loved the story. Well written and a great joy to read!
This was not a book that I would normally have read. It started off a bit strange for me, I wasn't sure I would finish it. But somehow it kept my attention. In the end it wasn't a bad book - I would recommend it to specific readers.
I am a total fan of Jodi! She develops characters like no other author I've read. Every story is unique and always amazes me what she comes up with. I felt like I knew the characters intimately. It was hard to choose who to root for this time!
This book took a long time for me to get into...but I am glad I stuck with it. The characters are quirky and borderline weird, but I grew to love them and cheered them on. I found myself laughing outloud at the same time wondering how any of this could happen to a real person as I also realized that it could, which is what made it laugh out loud funny:)
I listened to this book on CD and I wish I would have listened to the other reviewers. I tuned out a lot because it was confusing - there are three narrators and I'm almost to the end and still don't get how they relate to each other. The book just skips around too much to keep my interest.
What would you do to help your child - go on an excursion that may or may not work - maybe it's a whim or strecth...that is the story of the Horse Boy. Amazing journey of a family to help their autistic son.
