Ten to fifteen years ago, I really enjoyed reading Robert Fulghum’s books – you probably know him best as the author of All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten.My favorite book of his is one that was published a few years later, called From Beginning to End:: The Rituals of Our Lives.(It unfortunately appears to be out of publication, but fortunately, there’s a thriving market for used books these days.)
Amazon sent me an email about Robert Fulghum’s new book, Third Wish.I eagerly clicked over to read the summary, and was surprised – shocked, even – to discover that it’s a novel. And not just any novel, but one with music composed especially for it, and apparently with a unique (or contrived, depending on the reviewer) writing style.
I like Fulghum’s philosophy and perspective. I love that he seems to truly care about being a good person. But I’m not so sure this novel is worth reading. So has anyone read it, and if so, what did you think?
