The Fish That Climbed a TreeThe Fish That Climbed a Tree by Kevin Ansbro
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Fish that Climbed a Tree by Kevin Ansbro is a four star novel. Before picking this book up, I only saw the title and thought it intriguing. This novel was not at all what I was expecting from that. Not that I was disappointed because this novel has a lot of redeeming qualities. It was hard for me to follow at first that we are dealing with two different spheres of reality. My heart was breaking for Henry and the pain he would be feeling as a young child after his parents are murdered. As we follow him growing up, he seems to be doing ok but with the pitfalls of childhood that a lot of us face. Then as that story is flowing, we also see the realm of his father, Ulysses, as he is navigating through the after life. The way the author uses names and his large vocabulary to spice up his novel, the reader needs to really pay attention to be able to catch all of it. That part of the novel is brilliantly done.
