Road. Contractors are working on deadline to complete a road as Dave Eggers draws readers into consideration of the costs of war in his novel titled, The Parade. Set in an unnamed country, the characters Four and Nine react to the situation in which they have found themselves, and Eggers pulls readers into our own emotional reaction as the road comes to completion. We are all on a road of one sort or another and can be so absorbed in ourselves that we overlook what is happening around us. Eggers demands attention and reaction. Consider giving it to him as you read this novel that leads to personal introspection about important matters.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
