A strange, poignant, magical book with superbly drawn quirky characters (human & animal). A novel about life, love, nature, belonging, and the unexpected. I loved the premise (a boy raised by wolves who has a mysterious talent and a big heart) and the distinctive voices of the different characters - a quick, fun, and surprisingly touching read.
if i could give this MORE than 5 stars, i would! best novel i've read in a long time. beautiful story and writing as well. heartwarming and dreamy. i love reading books on health issues, some history, murder mysteries, people saving the world... all very entertaining, but Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstances was exceptional and unique. i stopped buying books long ago and prefer to just borrow from the library, but if i did still buy books, this would be one of them. looking forward to more from this author.
Sweet, light story about a man with magical capabilities to control the weather and the lives he impacts. A love story.
A whimsical fairy-tale-like story with a lovable, memorable protagonist, Weylyn Grey. Weylyn was orphaned as a young boy and taken in and raised by a wolf-pack. He also has odd talent for affecting nature in unexplainable ways. The story is told through the eyes of the people Weylyn meets and his effect on their lives.
This is a beautifully written story. The author creates an intricate woven timeline of different characters' points of view providing a bigger scope of understanding of who Weylyn (the central character) is through his relationships and experiences. This style also provided insight into how other's lives were effected by Weylyn, often changing their outlook on some aspect of their own life and the world around them.
There were 2 messages that resonated with me after reading this novel.
1)People/things/experiences have a way of coming back to you in some manner so it's never too late to follow your dreams or path.
2)Nature is powerful and beautiful and mysterious so it is important to live in harmony with it.
I enjoyed reading this book and discussing it with others as it is a thought-provoking story full of emotion. I hope to read more work by this author in the future.
