By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on May 28, 2012
Format: Kindle Edition
There are times when a book is sent for review and the moment it arrives it rises to the top of the stack, not only because the theme of the book is inviting, but also because in this world of ether books and chap books along comes an author and a publisher who retain the dignity of the concept of a limited edition form of a story - an homage to the history of great literature that is so very refreshing. THE SENSUALIST by new author Daniel Torday is presented by Nouvella Publishers in a limited edition (mine is 176/600) small scale form that matches the `novella' size of the story, and places it on fine paper with an elegant colophon (design is by Daniel A'Arcy). It is inviting even before beginning to read.

Daniel Torday is an effortless storyteller, a writer who has the ability to let words flow onto the page with elegant simplicity yet rich with imagery and atmosphere, but who never lets `style' get in the way of sharing the story at hand. As extensive the number of coming of age stories is Torday creates a new one - simple yet peppered with all the emotions of that special and terrifying time of life when childhood memories are less accessible and the realities of discovering love - of the opposite and of friends and of parents and grandparents and all progenitors - crack open the bubble of the world outside and insist on entrance. Torday takes that rite of passage and alters it with a healthy subset of story in that his best friend is form Russian (a recent immigrant) and brings with him an entirely different palette of experience - or is it? The answers lie within.

I am very impressed by Daniel Torday's writing talent. As a relatively young man, he possesses the sensitivity of someone with long life experience and the ability to convey it to the reader.

Only one character is fleshed out and yet remains a mystery (which works), but the other protagonists, we don't really get to know. The allusions to Dostoevsky needed extension and more richness.

A light, pleasant novella, probably best if you're someone who is familiar with the community in which it takes place.

My son had this book as equipped reading for his 11th grade English class. I read along and must say I read in one sitting. This book really makes you think. I highly recommend
