The 'lead character' starts as someone's son who I assumed to be a VERY young boy - he turned out to the much older.
About the first 20% is taken up by almost nothing but minute and boring details of travel by various forms of locomotion.
Practically nothing at all happens for the first 50% of the story.
Most of the conversations are forced and seem unnatural and it's not helped by how the author acknowledges who is actually speaking (for instance: repeating the name of the person over and over). Plus unnecessary repetition of people's 'titles' like 'uncle'.
When there IS some 'action' - it all seems highly improbable, and does not ring true at all.
There is a smattering of grammatical errors, such as using 'passed' for 'past'.
The 'butterfly' connection in the title could have been used a lot more to bulk up the story - it's just wasted..
All-in-all, it's an odd little saga, still: you may enjoy the ride - there's a story in there somewhere!!!
*** for effort.
Jim has created some very fun and memorable characters and I can't wait for his third book where he promised to bring them back! It was great fun to see how a New York mobster would do in the wilds of Upper Michigan. His suits and shoes so out of place and I can just imagine hanging at the bar with friends and family and just how everyone would look and stare at that fish out of water. I laughed when he tried to order pastrami in the diner and didn't know what half the food was. Having lived in the city I can imagine his shock that the fare is very local.
Just downloaded his next book and looking forward to some great diversion.
After finishing this book, within moments, I downloaded James R. Nelson's 'The Maze at Four Chimneys' and became wowed again!
