Review: Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Once in a while, I come across a book which changes my perspective and triggers soul-searching thoughts about my life or future. Lillian Boxfish takes a walk is one of these books. The story is about Lillian, a witty octogenarian, on the eve of the 1985 new year. Lillian's new year plans are derailed by a box of Oreo cookies and she finds herself walking all over New York City, her favorite town, and reminisces about her grand life. She will make unscheduled visits to places, she will meet interesting people and will encounter thrilling surprises. All in all, I just love how Lillian handles all situations. I hope I will be as witty as her in my 80's. This is a great read. The book is well written and the characters are fantastic. If you are looking for something a bit out of the ordinary, this book is for you.
