Setting of the novel: the setting is never the same because he is traveling all over the country trying to give whirligigs to people on the 4 corners of the country
The main character is Brent Bishop and he is in conflict with everyone that does not want the whirligigs
I do not like the authors writing style. The author jumps back and forth between present and past and it makes it very hard to follow. The author also uses good but challenging vocabulary and I do not know what the words are sometime difficult to understand
I really do not like the book, it is very hard to follow and i do not enjoy reading it.
