First off Daniel Wallace is a favorite author of mine and I was super excited about his newest endeavor. While this is quite a bit different than Big Fish, I adored this book! Being stuck in the mundane routine of life is a place many of us have experienced at one time or another. Edsel Bronfman is no different except for the fact that mediocrity has defined his life so far. Having the courage to step out of himself, take chances, and choose to be uncomfortable was inspiring and a good kick in the pants for me. This quiet and powerful story has stuck with me and I couldn't be more thankful for having read it.— From Patti H.
“We are all Edsel Bronfman. Or at least those of us who have spent a substantial portion of our lives as terribly awkward introverts with no social skills and a complete lack of romantic experience or opportunity are. Daniel Wallace's new novel had me cringing with recognition and laughing out loud as his 34-year-old protagonist is launched on an absurd and hilarious journey of self-discovery and transformation initiated by a mysterious phone call from a timeshare saleswoman. Extraordinary Adventures is a quirky, sweet, heartfelt, and offbeat romance that displays the imaginative playfulness Wallace is known for.”
