Book Review #1034
Elijah of Buxton by Christopher Paul Curtis
Rating: two stars (out of four)
I'll read any book written by Christopher Paul Curtis. I love his historical narratives and the way he incorporates humor into all his stories. This book though, was different. It seemed a little drawn-out and I would have liked more action and plot development. I liked the historical aspects of the novel, but I wasn't completely engaged. I was also a little surprised that it won so many awards, because I didn't like it nearly as much as other books he's written. I would probably still recommend it.
