Goodbye, Rudy KazoodyGoodbye, Rudy Kazoody by A.A. Freda
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A well crafted coming of age story...

Whatever flaws we might identify or frustrations we might feel are trivial in comparison to a reader's pure joy in losing himself/herself in a narrative. When all the elements come together: an intriguing plot, thoughtful, profound themes, complex, troubling, characters, and language that make us shudder for its honesty, clarity, and confidence; we gratefully set all analysis aside and give ourselves up to the sheer magic of a great book. And for me, Goodbye, Rudy Kazoody is such a book.

Goodbye, Rudy Kazoody is a well crafted coming of age novel. And I would imagine that fans of this genre will love having a nibble on this one! This is my first time reading this author and I must say I was very impressed.

The story had every element a good story should have. A stimulating plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There’s an abundance of well illustrated scenes that really make you feel like you are right there in the story, and that's something I look for in a good book.

This captivating and commendable work had me immersed from the beginning. The story flows from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional skill when it comes to storytelling. You will be guided through the chapters in this story with the feeling that there is something big about to transpire. Also, if you are fond of the “remember when life was good” stories about childhood friends, then you’ll get enjoyment from this book for its youthfulness and nostalgia.

It’s one of those stories that come along once in awhile that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader!

I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from A.A. Freda in the future! I would definitely recommend this book! Five stars from me.
