The Shell Collector by Anthony Doerr
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
When I wrote my initial notes on this book, I was only half-way through and thought that I had already read the best of the author’s short stories within the first 120 pages. Not so! In fact, the two fishing stories were yet to come and both kept my attention to the end. In particular, the story entitled “July Fourth” got my best laugh of the book upon reading the last page of that story. No skipping ahead and cheating allowed on this one! The other fishing story is a work of brilliance showing how we all eventually reap the rewards of continual lies that build and build as we cheat on others. Excellent bedtime reading one story per night.
