Tories but they never find closure like in The Neverending Story However it is never done in an unsatisfactory way it s just life The last book well let s just say it hit home I am moving soon after living most of my life with my single mother Looking at Joel s journey is a lot like looking at my ast and a little into my future I m not going to be a sailor that s for sure but like him I hanker to see the world and live in it This book means for me much than the story of four years of Joel s life It means the journey through childhood The Scot perhaps even through life If you read this book berepared to read a slow story No magic except that of childhood No romance except that of foolish teenagers kissing in a dark theater But a lot of growing up and a lot of life When I heard that this was the last book in a series of books for young adults I didn t know what to think Wasn t in the mood for a kid s book I wasn t disappointedIf this was a coming of age book maybe it was just what I was looking for Joel is beginning a new life at fifteen and so am I at 63 I enjoyed this book in the same way I look forward to enjoying my journey to the end of the worldI love to read Henning Mankell this book came at the right time and Spring Snow pleased me Immenselyck I love Joel This wasn t my favorite of the four but it was well done Henning Mankell always seems to make endings kind of sad The end of Wall.
