A wonderful part 2 to The Great and Secret Show. I really loved that it was a story in itself. Often, it seems that authors give us a part two just to cash in on the characters we knew and loved in the first one. This is definitely not the case with this book.

A wonderful part 2 to The Great and Secret Show. I really loved that it was a story in itself. Often, it seems that authors give us a part two just to cash in on the characters we knew and loved in the first one. This is definitely not the case with this book. There are characters from the first one Tesla, Raul, Grillo, JoBeth, Tommy Ray, and Howie but none of them are mentioned for the first pages or so. This means that we get new characters and a new problem.
The This was excellent. The story was beautiful. The character of Phoebe was instantly relatable though in some ways similar to a character from Coldheart Canyon; but then again, I guess a slightly overweight, middle-aged, unhappily married woman is probably more common than I would like to think. Sometimes the individual characters in a couple are not totally fleshed out and get some of their identity from each other but not here.
Joe was a vibrant character, stubborn, sweet, sexy; even when he was without Phoebe. Reading these books I wish Quiddity were real. It seems like my generation is so beset by apathy that we NEED something like the events in these books to force us to evolve. The world will always be here, but it will change. I think change is upon us especially in the US where we are days away from a new president and some possible changes and by embracing that change we can enjoy a peaceful, environmentally friendly, tolerant future.
