Eddie, though, tends to go on...and on...and on. About doing laundry. About his family. About doing laundry.About any number of things. And doing laundry. The laundry situation explains why Eddie is home alone during what appears to be a pivotal moment, at least locally. But I believe I was at the mid-point of the book before that pivotal moment even began to approach. This is the first volume in a serial, and it is definitely very introductory.
Could There Be A Reason For That?
Eddie has ADHD. ADHD has raised its head in my extended family and is having a look around. Thus it is a subject that interests me and that I may have to learn a great deal more about.
Not being knowledgeable about the subject at this point, I was left wondering as I read this book about the significance of ADHD in Eddie's life. Is Eddie's drifting away on tangents a representation of how the ADHD mind works? Is that what's going on here?
Or am I reading too much into this?
If the next book in the serial has as terrific a title and cover, I would be willing to give it another go, mainly because the story has barely started.
