The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski is the book that gets the award here. I read this fascinating story for my book club. I was so wrapped up in the book that I couldn’t put it down. I read it nonstop. I have never been so let down by an ending in my life. I remember sitting in my chair, dumbfounded. What? Is that it? How can the author leave it this way? So, although the writing was excellent, the characters came alive on the page, and the setting was perfect, I couldn’t remember anything I had just read because I was so upset over how it ended. If you read the reviews on Amazon, you’ll find that I wasn’t the only person that felt this way. Would I read it again? Probably, because it’s a great book (until the end). I have no idea what the author was thinking, but I’m sure he had his reasons. However, I remain disappointed in the book because of the big letdown.
