This book took hold of my attention early, and by the end I wanted to meet the main character, named Smithy, and befriend him. There's something about Smithy, perhaps that he's so nice or selfless or self-deprecating or self-unaware, that made me root for him. He and his experiences remind me of Forrest Gump, except that the only thing exceptional about Smithy is his ability to listen. This book evokes sadness, laughter, hopefulness, and endearment. As an added bonus, I have reintroduced bananas into my daily diet (you'll have to read it to understand that part) :).
