Written By: Daniel Quinn
Publisher: Bantam Dell
No one writes a diary purely for their own pleasure; there is always an audience in mind. At least that is what the fictitious Fr. Jared Osborne writes in his own diary, published as The Story of B. Part fiction, part non-fiction philosophy, The Story of B asks its readers to examine why what is commonly called “western culture” dominates world culture and question whether this western way of living is going to lead to our eventual destruction.
Though slow to start, there are a few twists in turns throughout the book which are more than enough to keep the average fiction reader interested. Offering more questions than answers in its philosophy,The Story of B is one worth reading again and again for readers aged thirteen and up.
