"Finton Moon" reminded me of great novels like "David Copperfield," "Of Human Bondage," "Sons and Lovers," "Jane Eyre," and "Catcher in the Rye."And Gerard Collins deserves much credit for exploring ideas common to these works within the Newfoundland and Labrador milieu.Darrell Squires, The Western Star

Top Customer Reviews
Fans of Frank McCourt would probably love this fiction, which may be what the nominating librarians are thinking of. It's a gothic tale, well told. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, is that I felt a little let-down by the ending, which I do not intend to reveal. But 4 stars says, I hope, read this book!
