PALLISADES PARK ~ ALAN BRENNERT




Any books by Brennert are must read books for me. This book was no exception. Although lighter in subject matter than the other two books I have read by him, I still felt as though I was a part of the book and not reading it, but living it.

Brennart's storys come alive and this book was no exception. I was expecting a story about Palisades Park and I got more than I bargained for. The development of the characters in this book was awesome. I felt as if I knew Toni, Eddie, Jack, Adele, Bunty, Irving and the rest of the cast personally. While detail oriented, every detail was required to get the feel of the book. I was actually shocked at the way the book detoured on other avenues, but it made the book all the better.

Being a "Jersey Girl" made the book even more special.

As quick as Brennert writes his books, I will read them. I am a definitely fan of his wonderful story telling.

5+ stars
