Book Review: Boy’s Life by Robert R. McCammon

I bought this because I was intrigued by the back flap’s promise of a very good tale.

This coming-of-age tale is so beautifully written. If I would fall in love with a book, I’d definitely choose this one. This is the first book of the author that I’ve read and I should say that I’m hooked. I bought the book at a book sale, and fell in love with it from the first page to the last.

This has all the elements of an engaging, gripping and unforgettable tale that I’m sure not only children would love, but adults (who feel nostalgic about a past, and hope they could revisit it if only for a breath of a moment), too.

I don’t often reread fiction books, but I find myself drawn to this one every time I see it. Each time I open it and flip its pages, I happily sink into its wonderful depths of magic, wonder and an unforgettable past filled with exciting adventures and sub-plots that touch the heart.

This novel by Robert McCammon deserves more than five stars. It deserves a hundred. Or even more than that.

After reading the novel, I can say that I know now why Robert R. McCammon is a favorite of many. For me, he is one of the best storytellers, and I’m really glad I bought his book. I understand that he writes horror stories. I hope he’ll write more books like this one.

I’m sure that this will be one of the timeless reads that will find its way into the hearts of those who seek a tale that’s superbly told and one that is unforgettable.

I really loved it!
