N.D. Wilson, in the welcoming comments of Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl, bluntly asks, “What the hell is this place?” His book is fun, poetic, reads well, and asks (and answers) lots of good questions. He uses the Tilt-A-Whirl as a metaphor for the world, structuring his book upon the four seasons (Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer). It really is a great book with loads of humor.
My only warning: at times the book feels forced, but push through it. It is well worth it.
