The Young and Prodigious T. S. Spivet

Based on the book The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet

Dear Spivet Family,
I have gone for a while to do some work. Don't worry, I'll be fine. I didn't want to bother you by telling about it ahead of time. Thank you for taking care of me. You are one of the best families in the world.
Love, T.S.
T.S. makes sense of his chaotic family life by drawing beautiful, meticulous maps kept in innumerable colour-coded notebooks. He is brilliant, and the Smithsonian Institution agrees, though when they award him a major scientific prize they don't suspect for a moment that he is twelve years old.
So begins T.S.'s life-changing adventure, travelling two thousand miles across America to reach the awards dinner, the secret-society membership and the TV interviews that beckon. But is this what he wants? Do maps and lists explain the world? And why are adults so strange?
Rezension
"Here is a book that does the impossible: it combines Mark Twain, Thomas Pynchon, and Little Miss Sunshine . Good novels entertain; great ones come as a gift to the readers who are lucky enough to find them. This book is a treasure" Stephen King

Zitat
"Here is a book that does the impossible: it combines Mark Twain, Thomas Pynchon, and Little Miss Sunshine. Good novels entertain; great ones come as a gift to the readers who are lucky enough to find them. This book is a treasure" Stephen King "Larsen has made an impressive mark ... spectacularly funny" Sunday Times "Reif Larsen's wonderful original debut, destined to please readers of all ages, is the Next Big Thing... echoes of Thomas Pynchon, Robert Coover and Nicholson Baker... a lively sophisticated narrative that looks to The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" Irish Times "A wilfully original and diverting book ... you can see exactly why it caused publishers to sit up. It is charming and kooky" Observer "Think Tom Sawyer with a passion for empirical science... one of the most original books of the year" Metro
