The Wild Things by Dave Eggers
The Wild Things

kladish, January 1, 2011

Sometimes I feel like I have a hard time finding friends who share my strong affection for Dave Eggers' writing style, but I honestly believe this book is a large departure from his previous work, and a great starting point for someone altogether new to Eggers.

I would be surprised to hear that a person with a fondness for:

a) Where The Wild Things Are;
b) Good, whimsical story-telling;
c) A story told from an entertaining and well-developed point of view;
d) Any of all of the above

didn't like this book.

I myself am not a huge fan of Where The Wild Things Are, if only because it just wasn't a book I read more than once during my childhood. That said, I very much enjoyed Eggers' version, and thought he turned Max into an engaging and authentic (although of course wholly unreliable) narrator.
