ONE BIG HOUSE

BIGTHE BIG HOUSE ON ADAMS STREET by Alberta Sparks, how to best describe this book? It started off hard became a secondary character to the plot, and left you feeling disenchanted.

The Kuntz and Huber’s are neighbors and their six year old daughters, Katherine and Sophie, are best friends. The Huber’s also have a son, Gustave.

Katherine’s son Fritz becomes the main character after he is grown and moves to America where the story really takes place. He decides to build a house and form a sort of commune where they all work and get along.

The story becomes more of the various inhabitants, how they come to the house, the gifts and talents they bring along with the merging of so much diversity.

This book is probably supposed to represent our society today and the wish for us all to get along. It was a bit to complex and the dialogue was stilted and amateurish.

I received this book free for an honest review from Thomas Nelson.
