But beyond the fun time that "Reality Boulevard" provides to us readers, I found myself attending more to two other dimensions.
What does the mass popularity of reality TV programs as depicted in "Reality Boulevard" say about us a society? I don't regret for an instant that Peltier's novel pressed this question into the forefront of my mind even at the expense of tainting somewhat the unadulterated enjoyment I was having in reading the story. I won't proffer any glib answers here to this probing question but reflecting on it will be the longer-term impact for me of having read "Reality Boulevard" after the glow of the fun time has faded. And for that, I'm appreciative.
The second aspect of reading "Reality Boulevard" that most impressed me was the fine quality of the writing. My goodness, Melissa Jo Peltier has mastered her craft. Editors are constantly harping at us writers to "show me, don't tell me." Peltier demonstrates that skill with seemingly effortless finesse. But we who write know that it is not effortless. Peltier has paid her dues. "Reality Boulevard" is a very solid piece of writing.
- Brilliantly constructed characters.
- A highly engaging, skillfully written plot.
- A page-turning experience written from an inside-view perspective.
- An unforgettable read.
This is the kind of book that just rides around in your head even after you have finished it. The characters are SO real - and I love how Ms. Peltier skillfully weaves this story, taking us through the development, discoveries, and adventures of the protagonist. ANYONE can relate to this book. Brilliant!
If any of this appeals to you, read this book. If it doesn't, forget it. I suggest finding a stereo instructions booklet from the '70s. EBay must have some.
Great book. Can't wait to see what this author will do next!
