A Forest for Calum by Frank Macdonald

A Forest for Calum by Frank Macdonald

*I received a ebook copy of this novel for free through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Rating: 2/5

Unfortunately due to an issue with downloading this novel I was only able to read parts of this book, therefore I will only be reviewing the first few chapters.

This novel explores the ever changing world Roodie and his family and friends live in. It explores a time very different from now but also very alike in many ways.

Even from the few chapters I read I could already sense the overwhelming feel of nostalgia that seeps out of each page. Although I will admit there were some themes that weren’t my cup of tea, I can definitely relate to some of the mischief Roodie and his friends got up to.

Overall from what I have read I don’t think this novel was for me. Yet it certainly has the promise of being a comforting read for many, one that will bring readers back to pleasant memories of their childhood, and to all this novel will serve as a reminder of things that once were.
