Read full description of the books Ο νάνος αστρονόμος:The Dork of Cork is my favorite book- which is no lighthearted claim. I normally shy away from books where mothers are central characters, because often times they aren't written like real people. Mothers are either written as supremely screwed up, Donna Reed types, or afterthoughts in the background of the story. Chet Raymo wrote Bernadette like woman rather than a mother. She was complicated, damaged, and had a range of emotions. Reading the book I felt that she did love Frankie and did want good things for him, but at the same time, was selfish and stunted. And Frankie was written much in the same way: he was sensitive, dynamic, and beautiful but self deprecating and had a massive chip on his shoulder. The character development was lovely, they felt real. The plot was pretty good, but I believe if Raymo were to write more fiction, he could write a book about anything and have it come off touching, enthralling, consuming, and bittersweet.
I love this book, I've read it many times and pick it up now and then and just read a couple pages to keep it fresh in my mind.
