Year 4, Book 27

27. Downtown Owl by Chuck Klosterman
The story takes place in a small town in North Dakota named Owl. It’s a very character driven story with not much plot, which I don’t mind at all if an author paints an engaging picture of his characters. That is the case with this book. It follows mainly 3 characters who live in the town a high school boy, a teacher, and a senior citizen. Their lives don’t really interconnect all though, which I found surprising for a book like this especially since it takes place in such a small town. I’m actually scheduled to read this for one of my book clubs in August, but I jumped the gun and read it several months ahead of time. I’m looking forward to discussing it. I give it a 7 out of 10.
