Heroes of the Frontier

Eggers' Alaskan adventure fails to excite

What a disappointment! I usually devour Dave Eggers’ books, but this story about a woman running away to Alaska with her two young kids in an RV was just plain lifeless and boring, with a plot seemingly going nowhere. I forced myself to read 80 pages, didn’t laugh once and simply gave up. Read Dave Eggers’ The Circle or A Hologram for the King instead.

Heroes of the Frontier by Dave Eggers is published by Hamish Hamilton, 400 pages.
