Read in November, 2008

Anderson is an astounding writer, a master of language and character development, so as I indicated in my review of Volume I, his self-proclaimed accolade is well deserved. This is an astonishing work, and Octavian's astonishing life is just one of several in this epic saga that takes place during the American Revolutionary War, the birth of science, and an earlier era of globalization. Categorizing "The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing" as a young adult novel doesn't acknowledge the broad audience it should reach. Read it, read it, read it. Highly recommended.
