Puzzle. Readers comfortable with the surreal will love J. Robert Lennon’s novel titled, Subdivision. We feel the excitement and confusion of an unnamed narrator who doesn’t know how she wound up in a guest house in a place called Subdivision. There is a task for both the narrator and us to solve a puzzle, as the book cover illustrates. Nothing seems familiar, though, and some things are downright absurd. Readers will find the book easy to lead to laughter and interesting to explore the changing environment. Isn’t all of life a puzzle that keeps us trying to figure stuff out? Lennon guides us in this novel to solve our own puzzles. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Subdivision from amazon.com.
