Eddie is a grizzled war veteran who feels trapped in a meaningless life of fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. His days are a dull routine of work, loneliness, and regret.
Hard to imagine all the biting, negative reviews after I listened to it but "to each his own". I had heard of the general theme and approach on a talk show but thought it was pulled off better than I could have ever imagined. If you have lost someone close to death, this book offers some comfort and hope. Yes, its a fairy tale of sorts but the message that there is value in all lives and that it might all make sense at the end was meaningful and powerful for me.
