Virgil Wander
Virgil Wander | Leif Enger
The first novel in ten years from award-winning, million-copy bestselling author Leif Enger, Virgil Wander is an enchanting and timeless all-American story that follows the inhabitants of a small Midwestern town in their quest to revive its flagging heart Midwestern movie house owner Virgil Wander is "cruising along at medium altitude" when his car flies off the road into icy Lake Superior. Virgil survives but his language and memory are altered and he emerges into a world no longer familiar to him. Awakening in this new life, Virgil begins to piece together his personal history and the lore of his broken town, with the help of a cast of affable and curious locals--from Rune, a twinkling, pipe-smoking, kite-flying stranger investigating the mystery of his disappeared son; to Nadine, the reserved, enchanting wife of the vanished man, to Tom, a journalist and Virgil's oldest friend; and various members of the Pea family who must confront tragedies of their own. Into this community returns a shimmering prodigal son who may hold the key to reviving their town. With intelligent humor and captivating whimsy, Leif Enger conjures a remarkable portrait of a region and its residents, who, for reasons of choice or circumstance, never made it out of their defunct industrial district. Carried aloft by quotidian pleasures including movies, fishing, necking in parked cars, playing baseball and falling in love, Virgil Wander is a swift, full journey into the heart and heartache of an often overlooked American Upper Midwest by a "formidably gifted" (Chicago Tribune) master storyteller.

Loved this book! So many beautiful words strung together to make lovely sentences.

Enger also wrote 'Peace Like a River' which has been in my top five favorite books for years.

Enger‘s writing places the reader on somewhat shaky ground between staid reality and a savage fairy tale. A beautiful poetry of fabulous characters floating through the story and nary a plot line in sight.

tpixie Well said! ♥️📚♥️ 3mo
Nebklvr @tpixie Thanks! Did you like the book? 3mo
tpixie @Nebklvr yes! I really liked his way with words. Your description was perfect. Although I never really listened to it much the book kind of reminded me of A Prairie Home Companion - a weekly radio show by Garrison Keillor 3mo
Nebklvr @tpixie Hmmm...the small town atmosphere of the show, yes, that makes sense 3mo

I found something warm & comforting about this book. It gave me the feeling I get when I catch up with a friend over coffee, & we talk for hours.

The story unravels slowly, so patience is needed. It‘s written beautifully & I came out the other end glad that I persisted.

I read this as a friend received it as a part of book delivery gift we gave her! It‘s not a book I‘d normally choose, which makes me even happier that I gave it a chance.

Enger specializes in writing allegorical stories rich in symbolism, and he does the same here. Took me some time to really engage with the story because it seemed to be going nowhere for the first few chapters, but it turned into a lovely story about life and love, growth and remembrance, and the power of friendship. Photo is of my Great Lake, Ontario, in zero degree weather, reminiscent of Enger‘s Lake Superior. Photo by John Kucko.

Okay, so it took me a while to get into this one. It just started slow for me, I wasn‘t interested in any of the characters. About halfway through I really hit my stride. It is beautifully writt n, with wonderful words and storytelling, and for that, and the finale of the book, I give it a pick and 3.5 stars.
Virgil Wander leads a typical bachelor life- owns and runs the local and run down theater, part time work at city hall. 👇🏻👇🏻

Theshadedbuffalo One day, he simply drives off a cliff, with no reason or understanding why. He‘s trying to recover from his horrible head injury when a mysterious man, who makes and flies mysterious and beautiful kites, comes to town asking questions about his long-lost (and presumably dead) son. What happens throughout is a journey for Virgil, the stranger, the locals, and the town itself. @kaye here is my small review. ❤️ 10mo

This is a wonderful audiobook. MacLeod Andrews has the perfect voice for a story set in Northern Minnesota.

Leif Enger‘s tale is delightful. The people who try to save Virgil, but who are actually saved by this lovely man, will be part of my life for a long time. Rune, and his incredible kites are such a lovely metaphor for what we all seek.

I loved, loved this book.

“Every year the city considers new holiday decorations but never follows through. Even the cheesiest snowflakes, stars, or reindeer are a big investment for a town like Greenstone. Those angels remember Dick Nixon.”

These are some of the decorations on the main street of my small town. I believe Enger must have visited. (The photo was taken in very cold temps so I apologize for the shaky image. I was, in fact, shaking.) 😂

A sweet and slow walk through the life of Virgil Wander following his near death experience. Lovely characters and some terrific sentence structures in this story. One of the characters builds amazing kites. The descriptions of the beauty and feelings evoked while flying a kite reminded me of my sister-in-law who each summer introduces those pleasures to the next generation. Here is Captain Adorable and Ellen flying together for the first time.

There are a few authors who can do no wrong by me; Leif Enger is one. Another quiet story that has a big voice. There are no big booms, no crescendo of reveals. Just a story of a man who met death a few times, helped to save his town in the most understated ways, and lived his life.

Caveat: It‘s not for everyone. You know why? It‘s charming and delightful! 😂 And there‘s so much dang hope. I liked that you‘re free to wade as deep as you want to with how much you want to ponder some deep thoughts about life. If you hated Less and A Man Called Ove - steer clear as this may not be for you. And you may like it if you enjoyed those books or if you enjoyed Peace Like A River. Enger reminds me a lot of Wendell Berry.

I need to do a mid-book update bc NONE of the marketing copy on the flap is in my wheelhouse (baseball, fishing, movies, kites 🙄 NO THANKS!). Save that book for a Father‘s Day gift.

And yet here I am - totally digging this story. With baseball, fishing, movies, kites - alongside Virgil as he wonders how to find the courage to change (but not in an obnoxious mid-life crisis way). Like - don‘t we all wonder this?

It‘s very Jayber Crow so far.

LauraBeth @Suet624 hope it come soon! The character is very reminiscent of Aeneas which I‘m guessing is why he‘s called Virgil 😂 Reading The Aeneid made me understand that in books as in life - there are multiple paths the hero can take and there may not be one specific and correct one. So that gave me better context for this story. 14mo

This one was a little too slow for me. The writing was beautiful, the characters well-drawn but the plot or story line was like molasses. I read Peace Like a River and felt the same so Mr. Enger's style just might not be for me. It reminds me of Northern Exposure and maybe a little of Twin Peaks. I would recommend it to people who enjoy slow stories about small Midwestern towns and heroically flawed people.

Though certainly well-written, Enger‘s third novel moves along at a slow pace and just never really made me love it.... I did like some of the characters but his debut novel is still my favorite of his! That being said, this small Minnesota town does come to a quirky life and I think this will work well for book clubs!

Loved this one!! ❤️ It‘s got a little of everything...re-inventing oneself, quirky/lovable characters, mystery, folklore, a bit of the supernatural, a little romance...but mostly it‘s just a well-written, home-towny-feel, stand-up-and-cheer-for kind of novel. And those are the best kind, imo. 😊👍 Recommended.
Thanks to #BookishFirst and #GrovePress for the ARC. Out 10/2.

Virgil Wander survives a nearly fatal accident with a concussion and the realization that he is no longer the man he thinks he used to be. This beautifully written book is more character study of the inhabitants of a down on its luck town than a plot driven novel but with a cast of characters so fabulous that I was sad to leave them behind.

I absolutely loved this book by the author of Peace Like A River! A charming story of a lovable main character who survives a drowning only to awake and find himself changed. We immediately are pulled into Virgil's life as he reaquaints himself with the people of his town and his old life. I wanted to crawl into this book to live in Greenstone among these characters. Highly recommend! Thanks to #netgalley #VirgilWander! ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5
