There must be something to the idea of Alaska and off-beat characters. Think of Northern Exposure or the new tv series Men in Trees. Perhaps this is where the idea started, or maybe it's really true. In any event, the book The End of the Road by Tom Bodett is a fun entertaining read.
Tom Bodett is an excellent story teller and the characters are completely real. I have never heard his radio show, but the book is collection of his stories from the radio program. The stories are loosely connected to each other, yet could be read separately. This book deserves all of the praise it has received. I wish our library had more of his stories in print or audio.
Book Rating: An enthusiastic 4 stars.
I am now reading Moonraker's Bride by Madeleine Brent.
