The Book of Jonas by Stephen Dau: Book Review & Giveaway
Posted on Mar 26 2012 at 01:21:02 PM in Books
I kept seeing the book cover for The Book of Jonas by Stephen Dau and loved the drawings on it. When I read the publisher’s brief description of this debut novel, I couldn’t see the connection between the story and the cover. Then I began to read and it all made perfect sense. This is a realistically rendered portrait of modern-day warfare and how it affects everyone even remotely involved.
“The imam said that the Americans were like the lion who had stepped on a thorn, and then went about making a great noise, roaring at the world from his pain. But it would soon pass, he said, when the thorn dried up and fell out, when the pain ebbed, and then tranquility would be restored.” Read the rest of my review & enter our giveaway at http://popcoronreads.com/?p=3472.
