FICTION: A boy on a voyage to find his true father regained consciousness on an unknown island to the curious stares of three old men: a warrior, a trader, and a priest. The lost boy would later discover through a mysterious man–a skinhead with an eye tattoo on his neck–that one among the trio could be the father he’d been looking for….

NONFICTION: This “little yellow book” is a good place to reclaim such good old-fashioned gems as “faith” and “hope” under the demythologized light of human reason. It is a phenomenological examination on the possibility and probability of a divine existent vis-à-vis a real world of human frailties and frictions. Lemonade Revealed is a timely discourse in a timeless (and engaging) story.

Thoughts
I’ve never read a book quite like Lemonade Revealed. It’s about a boy who lands ashore after a ship wreck and has no idea who he is. He’s met by 3 men who try to be a father figure to him, and he ends up thinking one of them might actually be his father.

The book is full of philosophical thoughts and has a bit of a religious tone. The story had an easy flow, but there were a few times I had to concentrate hard or I got lost and had to go back and re-read a few pages.

I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the envelope the book came it. It has a leather like cover that is bright yellow, the title is raised and is a nice fit for holding as it’s small.

This is one of those books that I’ll probably read again. It’s a lot more deep than my usual read and deserves a second, and maybe third, read. I’d also like to make sure I “got” everything the author was trying to convey.
