About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
There are other great characters here to be enjoyed, such as the taciturn Mr Black, whose underwater brush with death races the pulse .
Nature and landscapes integrate with the story : rain, trees, birdsounds , bridges; and the River itself.
Odie's psyche encounters the seductive high calling of Argentine tango, taken up at a wounded fellow vets' request.
The story juxtaposes the unique Pocono mountain area with the international art of tango. It resolves itself into a serene ending after its dark climax.
Oh, but one thing did bug me: It is clear within the first twenty or so pages of River Tango that the author has a great degree of personal knowledge about his two main topics: River and Tango. However, he writes the story as though he were at arms length from these subjects. He attempts to be an objective story teller, but his passion for these subjects is clear. He should dive into these subjects first hand and let all of his biases show.
Will there be a sequel? For Perry's first book I had to break out the dictionary a couple of times, so you can learn something even if it is fiction, can't wait for the sequel, or even another story by Perry.
My favorite scenes include mr. Black and his dance-like moves on the river; the sad couple who complete their last tango together on the riverside; the deliverance-like scene with big Jane and ode's attempt to learn the art of tango dancing. The author writes well about the river capturing the feel of what it must be like to be a river guide.
