    " This is one of my favorite works of fiction. "

    " This was one of those books that keep me rolling in waves of different emotions. I laughed, cried, cheered, etc. Edgar will steal your heart as you go through his life from a young boy to adulthood. Highly recommend!!! "

    " I picked this one up to listen to on a drive to St. George with my kids in the car (they were watching a movie with headphones). Big mistake. It has terrible language and when Edgar was going to be abused by the kids in his boarding school I had to turn it off. I think I made it to disk 3. Not sure where I got this recommendation from but I'm not going to start it again unless someone raves. "

    " Man, all you want is for this kid to catch a break. He makes you want it more than anything. "

    " Edgar Mint read like a tall-tale. This book kept me interested enough, but not enraptured. The story moves along, and Edgar is pretty likable. At times I thought of Jane Eyre, sometimes Geek Love, and others The World According to Garp. Those are all books that I like, but it is a little disconcerting to be constantly reminded of other books. It didn't allow me to totally engage in this book. One thing I did like about Edgar Mint was the ending. "

    " one of my top 5 EVER "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew Glasgow | 1/11/2014

    " I am not a big fiction reader, but I really liked this book. The story is at time heart wrenching, and at other times laugh out loud funny. A very good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annamarie | 1/6/2014

    " The doctor is the best human portrayal of Satan I've ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 sarah t | 1/6/2014

    " A thoroughly entertaining read that I unfortunately read two quickly in just two sittings - one waiting for a very delayed plane and the other rather sleepily on the return flight. It made me laugh out loud on several occasions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 1/4/2014

    " perfect mix of sad and funny. couldnt put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer (aka EM) | 1/3/2014

    " Fantastic book - if you liked The Lonely Polygamist, I can't imagine you wouldn't like this one. More of a review to come. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry | 12/13/2013

    " This is my new Book Circle choice- am enjoying it from the get go. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 12/10/2013

    " "If I could tell you only one thing about my life it would be this: when I was seven years old the mailman ran over my head..." One of the best first lines in a book, ever. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Em | 11/20/2013

    " It's an original. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 11/16/2013

    " Amazing story, how he survived is a mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Marotto | 8/9/2013

    " Edgar is downright unlucky, but lovable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dianne | 2/11/2013

    " I think I love Brady Udall's writing style and narrative but I think my complaint is that the endings always read flat to me. This is not to say that I didn't thoroughly enjoy it, because I did. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melynda Burt | 10/18/2012

    " An absolutely delicious read including tragedy as well as triumph. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine Scharf | 7/26/2012

    " weird. original. never quite sure if i liked it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ron Ice | 6/10/2012

    " Believing in the goodness of those around us even when everything seems to prove the contrary. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 12/2/2011

    " This book was hilarious and sad all at the same time. It was a truly unique story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adina | 2/3/2011

    " It is a tribute to what a good writer Barry Udall is that I finished this painful, difficult book. Just about everything awful that could happen does happen to Edgar Mint. I hope he finds some more hopeful topics to write about in the future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffany | 12/12/2010

    " A really good coming of age story. Edgar Mint's life is almost tragic in some aspects but it makes for a really great read. Highly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 9/21/2010

    " I had a hard time with this book until about halfway through, just trying to make sense of a very odd set of characters. But I liked the writing and so kept going. Glad I did. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beverly | 7/11/2010

    " I loved this wacky book. Full of pathos and humor...a sort of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" sensibility. I love it. I bought a copy of his short stories and now it's lost in this house of books. I will find it and report back later! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bopfrog | 3/31/2010

    " Really enjoyed this book - echoes of the Power of One but somehow more real. Really good read and a really positive lead character "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leif | 3/31/2010

    " I normally don't read this type of book, so it might mean more to you that I like it, or it might mean less. Normally I read science fiction (cheap science fiction). This book reminded me a little of The Education of Little Tree and Life of Pi. It was... good. "
