    The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow eBook ¶ Paperback º Rita Leganski The Silence of Bonaventure ArrowThis novel was absolutely fantastic It took me uite some time to get over the fact that this book had ended I did not want to leave the world that Rita Leganski had created in this novel The story within these pages sucked me in from the first page and it almost hurt me to close the back cover at the end This was one of those novels that is so well written I had to read parts out loud to release the beauty of the language into the world Not only is Bo

    The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow eBook ¶ Paperback º Rita Leganski The Silence of Bonaventure ArrowSimply magical I loved the writing I had goosebumps while reading the very first paragraph I was hooked Anyways although the pace is a bit slow the storyline is remarkable It’s an emotional roller coaster This is one of the rare books that I did not want to end The structure and characters development are truly impressive at least for me I loved every page My favourite part is when Bonaventure was still in his mom’s womb the description of his reactions to external sounds was so realistic I did expect a grand finale and because of that I was a bit disappointed but regardless this one was a terrific read Note there are lots of religious references that may not please everyone that part did not bother me a bit
