The City by Dean Koontz
I found the beginning of this book a bit slow going and I had a tough time getting into it, but once I did, I enjoyed it very much. Koontz's writing is a joy to read with rich and rather zany descriptions. This story is told by Jonah, who is in his 50's looking back to events in his life from ages 8 to 12 in the 1960s. Jonah tells about his family, his love of music, friendship and some of the historical events that occurred during that time period.Jonah experiences magic and mystery, love, joy, hope and sorrow, and overcomes tragedy knowing that no matter what happens, everything will be ok in the end.
I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
