Elijah of Buxton

I’m about 70 pages in and so far, reading this book is like reading a series of short stories about the main character, Elijah. He lives during an interesting time period and tells his story with a strong southern accent, which does not get in the way of understanding what he is saying (unlike that annoying character Joseph in Wuthering Heights). I have found myself very easily able to tear myself away from this book; it is not a “page-turner” in the traditional sense. However, Elijah is a beautifully composed character and has a supporting cast of equally colorful and funny friends and family members. Despite that though, I am getting a little restless and can’t wait until I finally get to the actual plot of the novel as described on the book flap.
