Duck Hunter Shoots Angel

 

continued

Albom's meaning-of-life homily left me cold — any message that comes from an angel needs to be a really good one, and this didn't make the grade. But between the moments of heavy-handed preaching, Albom has created a story that is poignant and true to life. Small town girls will fawn over men from out of town with no demonstrable advantages other than a large vocabulary, and bright, ambitious young men who seem to have everything often are soulless egomaniacs — and there lies the story.

The identity of the angel even gets cleared up in the last few minutes, a bonus you don't necessarily expect in the angel genre.

Purple Rose's summerlong hit production of Duck Hunter Shoots Angel continues through mid-September.    (end of article)
