Story telling is the heart of all fiction though sometimes authors tie themselves up in linguist knots and lose sight of the importance of pace and audience involvement in their work. Not so Thomas who pitches his tales and their construction right where the reader/listener will find the most emotional connection.
I received a review copy from the author and recommend Story Tellers: In Pursuit of Happiness without reservation.
Its uniquely stories are told in a manner that all can relate to very well. They provide great insights on human values.
This book is great for teens, young adults, and even mature readers like myself. If you like great fairytale folklore, then you'll definitely get lots of entertainment and enjoyment out of this book.
If there's one thing I'd change about this book, it would be to improve on the book cover to indicate a more mythical and magical feel rather than the current one. But overall, the book is really a great read.
This book looked great on my Kindle Fire tablet. It has good formatting and layout.

Time and time again, I have said that I love a tale that plays with language and words; one that uses an advanced understanding of what it takes to bedazzle readers. As I read, I had no choice but to smile and revel in the manner it all unfolded. From Leprechauns to Celestial beings, rainbows and pots of gold, the quest for immortality to the very nature of humankind, it's a savory tale for anyone that likes to get lost in rich imagination. Great job!
(NOTE: I received a copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review.)
The book is divided into two parts. The first part is Celestial Games. The second part is The Last Storyteller.
The Storyteller and listener, Little One, interact. The reader moves through the stories, learning not only the tales but the nature of the Storyteller and Little One. The discerning reader will explore the layers, not only in the stories, but in the teller and the listener.
"The boy could hear the song of the wind in the evenings, the promise of the rain as it fell upon the Earth, the bird’s wings in magnificent flight high above the Earth. He could see with his mind’s eye when he slept, and he always danced with the animals by the first rays of the new moon each month.
"There could be no doubt about this boy.
"Such a son as this one, wished every man. Yet the old man knew one day the boy would be alone. There would be many who would be evil, with destruction as their only fruits."
Thomas Jerome Baker's masterpiece Story Tellers: In Pursuit of Happiness offers both entertaining stories and an intellectual exercise in the nature of man, the real and surreal, light and dark, good and evil, winning and losing, and the past, present, and future.
