Rediscovered a great author...

The Garden of Last Days
The Garden of Last Days

By: Andre Dubus III

Genre: Adult fiction

Pages: 544

Published: 2008

Read: April

4.5 out of 5

I recently recommended House of Sand and Fog to a coworker and it reminded me how much I enjoyed it. So I looked up the author for more of his novels. Dubus III outdid himself again with this story. I love when authors have a distinct writing style all of their own, yet their stories differ greatly.  I love Dubus III's writing style and reminds me a little bit of James Frey.  This entire book takes place over 5 days in September 2001, even though a lengthy book it is extremely fast-paced and never has a dull moment. Some aspects of the story the reader is able to predict before the characters discover the truth, but that doesn't stop the thrill of this book.  I plan to read the rest of his novels now that I rediscovered Andre Dubus III.
