ONE BIRD’S CHOICE: AYear in the Life of an Overeducated, Underemployed Twenty-Something Who Moves Back HomePosted by Brian Bassingthwaighte in Canadian, Family, tags: Canadian, Farm, memoir
Reid has constructed quite a funny memoir in part thanks to his warm and engaging parents. Reid himself seems self centred, both pessimistic and indolent. His parents truly love their life together and their life on their farm. Reid makes his parents come alive in all their eccentricities. One of the scenes that I laughed out loud at was the family choosing what to eat while they eat the previous meal. Which is something my spouse Bev loves to do. There are several places in the book that are laugh out loud funny. Worth the read though somewhat uneven.
