Cameron is an able storyteller, and his command allows the prose to flow simply and beautifully; here, most every word counts. Adam's often hilarious wit and Caroline's recalcitrance are sharply drawn, descriptions are in crisp relief, and Cameron gives us many reasons to smile: "Pete stood there for a moment, as if he were deciding, trying to think of a reason why he must stay with them, but he was not clever enough, and so of course he had to leave." The City of Your Final Destination is a refreshing look at the impact of desire and love on quirky, elegantly drawn characters. --Michael Ferch --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Cameron has created a well developed, complex and somewhat esoteric plot with rich characters.
No need to re-hash the plot here, suffice to say this is one of the most enjoyable stories I have read for a very long time.
The anticipation of picking up one of his books is exciting, because I know I will be in for a very good read.
