Marriage. Adam Ross’ debut novel, Mr. Peanut, will not appeal to those readers who prefer fiction to fit into specific genre, and who like a well-told tale presented in a straightforward manner. This is also not a book that a reader can savor casually paying limited attention. Ross presents an oddly constructed and convoluted novel that requires great patience and attention. The payoff for readers willing to extend that patience comes in the form of creative, imaginative and well-written prose. Ross presents marriage in ways that I don’t think I’ve ever read or experienced. I finished the book feeling that I experienced something unique, and recommend this novel to those readers looking for something far off the beaten path.
Rating: Four-star (Highly Recommended)
