We are right back with our favorite cast of characters as author Golden November ropes us in for a new adventure in Varrius: Enter Milestoneville. Let's get the format out of the way first, because it is the most loved aspect by November fans and perhaps the most confusing for new readers. November's books are not a sit down and read affair; they are a 'grab your best friends and assign them characters to act out the novel' type of event. Varrius is an unknown who starts out with everything going quite well in his non-Milestoneville circle, only to have it come crashing down around him before he gets lost at sea. This is the 'Enter Milestoneville' part because that is exactly who rescues Varrius. From this point forward, Varrius becomes like the rest of us: addicted to the people and the town, and ready to make it his own.
It is so much fun to have the opportunity to read a new Golden November book. I waited for a weekend when a couple of friends could come to spend the afternoon acting out Varrius: Enter Milestoneville with me. The picture prompts are my favorite part and I love how some of them carry from one book to the next, giving a genuine sense of place and allowing a settled-in feel for us regulars. It's like going home. A relationship blossoms here and there is a mayoral race that will pit two beloved residents against one another, which may or may not have turned into a wrestling match on my own living room floor as the debates got started. What happens in Milestoneville stays in Milestoneville. Or something like that. November is as sharp as a tack and the deadpan comedy that forms the bulk of the dialogue is pure quality. Fun as always!
