This is the best book I have ever read!! If you want a story about the 70's this is one, full of symoblism and underlying truths and tragedy. The "undertoad" You may not always see it but its always there, and we all have those "undertoads" in our life. This book is full complete, from beginning to end, the end will not leave you questioning "what was Irving thinking?" He completed this book and didn't shirk on the details, its phenomonal!

Review this book and you’ll be entered for a chance to win !

About Discover Books

Our company was launched based on the fundamental belief that used books have value and should never go to waste. Prior to our founding, many of our staff worked in the thrift industry where we saw millions of books being sent to landfills each year. With each discarded book, we thought of the imagination, magic, and knowledge lost forever to a garbage heap and we endeavored to find a better way.

We think books should achieve their greatest possible purpose: Whether purchased by another reader, donated to help a child acquire the lifelong skill of literacy, or recycled as a new product, it has a story to tell. We let stories live on.
