The Adventures of Bonny Hood in the Urban Desert: a Novel

The Adventures of Bonny Hood in the Urban Desert: a NovelThe Adventures of Bonny Hood in the Urban Desert: a Novel by Yossi Ovadia
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A unique, atmospheric, and compelling read...

In summarizing Yossi Ovadia’s “The Adventures of Bonny Hood in the Urban Desert” we are introduced to protagonist-narrator Bonny Hood who spends his days traveling between his desert hometown and The Big City, chasing females, and getting into trouble with all of the wrong people. However, in his head, he is a hero, a defender, and a Prince Charming straight out of a fairy tale. Bonny's travels illustrate the need to re-establish a connection with oneself, moving on from one's past experiences, and following one's aspirations, regardless of where they may ultimately take us.

The Adventures of Bonny Hood is a humorous coming-of-age story with a character that dreams of the wider world and whether he has a place in it. The author creates a distinctive, atmospheric but witty narrative throughout. It’s a towering work, painted from a spectrum of emotions and intuitions, which cannot be adequately described in words. Highly recommended and a well-deserved five stars from me. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
