's review

it was ok

David kept hoping that this dorky little story about gnomes, having been written by Upton Sinclair, would at some point give way to some great, deep thoughts. It doesn't. It is a book about gnomes. And one that Disney apparently made into a movie (haven't seen it). There is some commentary of the destruction of logging and it's environmental disasters (mudslides, loss of precious topsoil, creation of deserts, flooding, etc) but even then the scion of the lumber industry gets a pass while the media doesn't. Kind of lame.

Ok, I picked it up for 25 cents at DI, thinking I'd give it to my dad who loves tacky yard gnomes but instead it's on my bookshelf and not his. And it made a passable bedtime/nursing session read.
