Guest Review

I absolutely loved this book! It was very beautifully written and I was hooked at the moment I started reading!! There were so many beautiful sentences and quotes that I just wanted to remember. I think this will be one of my favourite books because it was such a lovely story to read and to follow Micheal and Ron in their journey. It was addicting in all the best ways. The book is a sequel to "A reservoir man" where we find Michael teaching at a University ready to retire. He staringly runs into a young fellow Ron, who turns into his protege and later the two form a warm and cozy friendship, travel across the United States, Discovering the beauty of the country. Their journey was really thrilling!!! I love authors writing style. It's incredibly easy to devour his books and his writing feel so relatable like you are talking with a friend. It was pure magic. So Vivid. So engrossing. The main characters are what drives the book overall a great fast easy read. If you haven't read it, you need to. I truly can't recommend it enough!
Michael's story continues from A Reservoir Man (2022) where we find him teaching at a university ready to retire. He unexpectedly meets a young man named Ron who becomes his protege and journeys in a haphazard adventure with him throughout America and Europe, each twist and turn of the road bringing unexpected adventures. The journey taken is one of joy, friendship and discovery.

“How long will the trip last? I thought I would be in Transcendental amazement by now.”

Michael was a little shocked. “Ron, we have only been driving for 2 hours.”

Michael explained to him that they would drive US 80 until they reached the borders of Nebraska and Wyoming, so he had to settle in. The corn fields were right down the road. Passing the corn fields, Ron observed how peaceful everything was. Michael suggested they pull over and park the car for a while.

While just sitting in the car, Ron saw two figures in the field, a man, and a woman. They suddenly disappeared among the corn and, from above, you could see the corn stalks shake violently. Ron chuckled.

“Oh God, looks like those people are doing it! It almost looks like he is doing it to the corn stalk!”

Michael tried to change the subject, “Look at those birds” he said, quickly. Ron was still caught up in his imagination. A few moments passed as Michael tried to rest his eyes and prepare for the next stretch of road. Suddenly he heard Ron crinkling a wrapper to a candy bar, which jarred him back to the moment. Michael sat listening to Ron crunch; he nearly threw it out the window.

“Can you not chew so loud, Ron?”

“Sorry. I love these things.”

A moment passed; the corn stalks were calm now.
