Price: $2.49
A little over a hundred years ago lived the colorful, eccentric, nonconformists on a heavily wooded river bluff of a burgeoning American city. Within the satirical, fictitious plot, a plethora of comedic characters carried out their unburdened lifestyle, eventually caught up in the drama of society, from the darkness of the crumbling skid row across the river, and on into the prosperous core of the metropolis. A plethora of characters like Pinky, Big Bob, Black John, Oiva, Polkadots, Barbara, Angel, and Herman the German live in tents and ramshackle hovels on the often ludicrous edge of society ripe with enrapturement, foibles, failures, and sublimity. In a dog-eat-dog scenario unfolds an allegory, perhaps that which predicts the fate of mankind in the future, all in a multifaceted, churning of the machinations of society in a Machiavellian plot. 'Hobos of Honeytown' is laughable, ridiculous wit and can be enjoyed by anyone wanting a journey into the absurd and having a seatbelt... More > on their chair.< Less

    Being that I know Peter, having an idea of how much the natural world is Peter’s home, knowing how the city experience with noise, air pollution etc…. I would appreciate his theme for the book that natural is best. Also that people living in nature are more likely to be sensible and communal. Persons loosing their touch with the natural world becoming corrupted in body and spirit. Peter is very good at describing and this helped me imagine the place and people. I like the rhythm of the book. For example coming and going from the hobo’s side of the river was always described as walking past certain landmarks such as the Fats and Organs sign or the bridge with the mist. It set a rhythm and built into the reader the landscapes of the book, each with their own effect on the humans as well. For example the mist and the bridge being refreshing and renewing…or the Fats⩔gans sign being foreboding….the water pump in the Park always had fresh natural water…the red brick buildings and the... More > sunsets. I could not of predicted the twists and turns of this saga…nor the ending, which for me as a reader kept me reading. Peter used some words not so often in texts, these days. Thank goodness I read this in iBook, as there is an included dictionary. But I like to be challenged and to learn more. Being a natural speed reader….I had to force myself to slow down to full get the meanings which the author intended or meanings I might infer from the passages. At first with the diction of the hobo’s, I read the narrative out loud and before no time I could hear the narrative in my head as I read. I liked the development of the characters…. The development sometimes was spread over several chapters which left me to slowly learn more and more about the characters who would become more central later in the book. It is like the author had interwoven the characters and the landscapes like a fine weaver of tales.< Less
