Ms. Darnell's wonderful book is such a breath of fresh air. The characters are eccentric and unique, and seeing the world through Peregrin "Perry" Aliger's eyes is not like looking through rose-colored glasses...it's like strapping two telescopes to your eyes and viewing the galaxy. Through her creative descriptions, Ms. Darnell paints vivid pictures that you carry with you long after putting the book down. She makes you look at your neighbors differently and she revitalizes the way you regard relationships.
I thoroughly recommend this book, and absolutely can't wait till Ms. Darnell's next one comes out!!

I read this book months ago and neglected to write a review. Hopefully this will make up for that error!

The Misguided Souls of Magnolia Springs is a WONDERFUL book. So wonderful, in fact, that I'm getting ready to read it for the second time.

Writing is not my strength, but I wanted to say that Ms. Darnell captured the feeling of small town life quite well. When newcomers move to town they are a source of curiosity, and these particular newcomers are VERY mysterious! As I read this book I felt like I knew some of these characters personally, as though Ms. Darnell had come to the town I grew up in and written about some of my neighbors. I'm quite sure that anyone who grew up in a small town will feel the same way!

There are times when I need a book that will leave a smile on my face when I finish that last page. This is one of those books.

I bought this book because it was recommended by Red Adept. I'm glad I did, I enjoyed the book and I would recommend it to others.

Although I feel it could have been a tad bit shorter, it was well written, had very interesting characters and the plot moved well.

Overall: 4 3/4 Stars

Plot/Storyline: 4 Stars

The plot was an original idea and fairly unique in its execution. This is a difficult book to review as far as plot and storyline as I don't want to give any spoilers.

The book starts out with a few intriguing opening scenes that really made me want to keep reading. The storyline did progress pretty nicely, albeit at a slow pace, after those scenes. However, there were way too many extraneous scenes, sometimes entire chapters, that did not forward the storyline at all and just seemed to be added for speculation among the locals. There was plenty of speculating going on in the chapters that did forward the storyline without adding more.

The exceptional storyline did make plodding through these extra chapters worth my time. I just had to discover what was going on with the new neighbors, the Aligers.

My favorite parts of the story were the scenes where Perry Aliger gets confused with all of the English 'sayings.' These scenes really made me think about how often we say things without thinking of the literal meanings of the words.

Character Development: 5 Stars

Ms. Darnell excels at character development. Her novel is peopled with truly unique individuals. Each character has depth and is completely different in both personality and circumstances from every other.

There was a lot of imagination and thought put into each character. Ms. Darnell knows how to make the reader care about the characters and what happens to them.

Perry was one of my favorite characters, mostly stemming from what I mentioned above regarding his confusing with English colloquialisms.

Writing Style: 5 Stars

The writing style was superb.
