Please be sure to read this in your mind using your inner stand-up comedian voice! It’s loaded with humor, If children bursting into flames is too fantastical for you, you could take it as a euphemism for something real such as temper tantrums, panic attacks, seizures, etc.
This is a perfect book
Probably best book I’ve read on Apple Books, I have no complaints except that I already knew what was gonna happen at the end.
Such an odd premise but somehow it becomes believable. This book was different than any other book I’ve read this year. No real suspense but a good story with lovable characters.
AS the review in the NYT REview of Books said- “this book is perfect!” It has meaning on too many levels to count. Read up on what the meaning of fire is in the Old Testament to really get your ahead into the significance of Roland and Bessie’s “unusual” tendency. I defy anyone to not be able to relate toLillian and her sad but ultimately fulfilled life. The satirical Billings estate and family are, unfortunately, spot on as well. JUST READ IT!
Great book! A bunch of bad words not intended for children I’m guessing but if your over the age of 12 I think it’s a great idea
When I first began this story I was apprehensive about the children and their ability to catch on fire yet as the story unfolded I fell in love with the characters, the imagination of the author and the authenticity of this unbelievable content. Remarkably good and unforgettable!!
