Poet At Large Reviews, Book, Nightingale   Leave a comment

David Farland’s latest Young Adult novel Nightingale is a delight to read.  The notion of a a changeling or a Mystical child being left to be raised by humans is a notion that goes back in history for a very long time.  Putting a new spin on that notion can be a fun challenge.  The Masaak as demons, angels and muses  is certainly a wonderful tale.  The story of Bron is in some places harsh but more bitter, sweet.    Since the story takes place in Southern, Utah where I lived for a time as a teen I know many of the places that the story talks about.  The descriptions of the places in the book that I am familare with are very accurate.  The high School and near by professional amphitheatre  are in deed real places.  I have attended plays at both.  The landscape is used so well that it also becomes a character in the book and makes me long for Joshua trees and red cliffs.  My biggest complaint that I have to wait for the sequel.   Though there is one item in the story that I might want to submit to the Mythbusters.  Please don’t let that stop you from enjoying the book.
