Book Review: The Brooklyn Follies


A review by Begoña Suárez

A recently divorced and lonely man in his sixties (Nathan Glass) who suffers from a terminal cancer decides to spend the rest of his time in Brooklyn.
At the beginning of the book you have the feeling that it is a story of sadness and desperation. Far from it! The novel is filled with optimism and lovely moments. When Nathan says that he has ‘ to do more than just sit around and wait for the end’ the events happen one after the other as the same time as the interesting lives of their characters. The plot is full of twists that make it completely unpredictable.
I had a great time reading it, not only by the readable amusing plot but its style accessible to any reader. I couldn’t understand all the vocabulary, however that was no obstacle to grasp the thread of the story.
