One thing I have loved in reading many of Mr. Meeks’s stories is the humanity of his characters. You can always feel for these people. In The Brightest Moon of the Century, Edward is no exception, and in fact, he echoes the experience of many.
He remains in the background for most of his early years, struggling with bullying and confusion over girls, especially given his raging adolescent hormones. Through college, he decides what he wants to be, but the path there isn’t easy or conventional. While on his unexpected detours, Edward figures out who he is and begins to achieve, but he still isn’t perfect, because no one can be.
This book echoes the unpredictability of life in a way that will resonate with anyone who has ever been a little lost.
