really liked it
bookshelves: first-read
Read from November 30, 2011 to February 06, 2012

From the Mouth of The Whale is a lyrical delight. Explaining this piece is almost impossible. The language draws you in and takes you through the story of Jonas. A man who has struggled through exile, deaths, and adventures. The stunning use of imagery transports you to a different time and place. The magic and mystery of this story is in the language. I look forward to reading it again. I can see finding new delight and meaning in each reading.
