"Conceived in love and possibility, Bonaventure Arrow didn't make a peep when he was born, and the doctor nearly took him for dead. No one knows that Bonaventure's silence is filled with resonance-- a miraculous gift of rarified hearing that encompasses the Universe of Every Single Sound. Growing up in the big house on Christopher Street in Bayou Cymbaline, Bonaventure can hear flowers grow, a thousand shades of blue, and the miniature tempests that rage inside raindrops. He can also hear the gentle voice of his father, William Arrow, shot dead before Bonaventure was born by a mysterious stranger known only as the Wanderer. Bonaventure's remarkable gift of listening promises salvation to the souls who love him: his beautiful young mother, Dancy, haunted by the death of her husband; his Grand-mere Letice, plagued by grief and a long-buried guilt she locks away in a chapel; and his father, William, whose roaming spirit must fix the wreckage of the past. With the help of Trinidad Prefontaine, a Creole housekeeper endowed with her own special gifts, Bonaventure will find the key to long-buried mysteries and soothe a chorus of family secrets clamoring to be healed" -- from HarperCollins web site.… (mehr)

Reading this book was like tasting an exotic food I've never had before. You have that split second where your taste buds are indecisive, where it could go either way. But this book was rich and delicious. Lush and lyrical. Sometimes the lyrical prose was a little overpowering, trying too hard, and over-the-top, yet other times I read and reread a line because it was so beautiful. I highly recommend this story. Characters are well thought out and well drawn. It's a different kind of story. Magical in a believable way. It beckons you to lay aside your cynicism and believe in good magic, pulls you in. Heartwarming and heartbreaking at times. Great read for summer on the porch with the cicadas buzzing. ( )

Beautiful story told in a deceptively understated, dreamy way that lulls the reader into thinking not much is going on....but so much happens! Bonaventure Arrow is born unable to speak but he hears everything, and his hearing becomes more acute as he grows older. His family includes his mother and two grandmothers, all very nuanced and fully fleshed out characters. Bonaventure reminded me of Owen Meany ([b:A Prayer for Owen Meany|4473|A Prayer for Owen Meany|John Irving|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1260470010s/4473.jpg|1734019]) in a good way!
This book managed to touch on so many social issues without being forceful about anything, the author has a light touch! There was so much to think about - great book for discussion.
Leganski is a master at descriptions, we see, hear, feel and smell what the characters in the novel are experiencing. There are secrets, there is a love story, a mystery, and humor, and everything happens for a reason.
This is a special novel that was surprisingly engaging and sweet - a "feel good-but not sappy" novel. ( )

I liked this book. The plot was interesting. It did move a little bit slowly at times, but it wasn't too bad. The characters were vivid and the setting (New Orleans and surrounding area) was almost a character itself. I would recommend this book. ( )
