Book Review: "Father's Day" by Simon Van Booy
I hadn't read Van Booy before now, but I see why so many people love him so much. This book was beautiful and careful with emotions and wonderful. It took me a chapter or two to become completely enraptured with this story.
Harvey and Jason have much to offer and teach each other, but it's far more than that. There is a lot of love here, and it mostly starts with the opportunity for second chances. The relationships that come out of these second chances are amazing. Some take some time and effort, but what doesn't? I loved how the narrative moved so seamlessly between past and present. It worked so well, and I especially liked how each perspective or memory was offered to the reader. Its truly beautiful.
I strongly recommend this to readers of literary fiction and those who enjoy redemption stories.
