The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet

The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet

by Reif Larson

Carol Donsky Newell: It's hard to believe that a book written from the viewpoint of a child who spends his days making maps, studying science and catergorizing his world could be so full of wisdom and delight. I heard about this book on NPR and it sounded original and interesting. I also bought it because maps and science are definite weaknesses of mine and I thought it might be challenging to try to understand them better. I couldn't put this book down. You don't need to understand maps or science to love reading Larson's book, for it's actually about family and life and coping with the death of a loved one. It's about being brave enough to be yourself and to follow your passions. There are passages worth keeping for reference in a journal and moments that made me laught out loud. What a wonderful surprise this book is!
