Some Early Readers’ Reviews Of “The Geography Lesson”

Looking for something to read this weekend?  Check out my novel, The Geography Lesson.  But don’t just take my word for how enjoyable it is, check out what readers have said about it in their reviews on sites selling it.

Here’s one, from the Amazon page: “Love, friendship, betrayal, forgiveness and adventure. Told with great humor against a backdrop created by an author with a flawless eye for Washington and points beyond. With painstakingly rendered detail, Buckley brings several different distinct worlds to life: The old-school, Mad Men world of adventure journalists; the last days of when the institutions of the nation’s capital were ruled largely by New England blue bloods; the modern-day, rarified milieu of America’s privileged classes; and the exotic human and physical landscapes of the American West. Here’s something that sneaks up on you: It’s a Washington novel that’s outside the mold of any ever written because it never claims to be one. It paints pictures of political lessons rather than preaches them. Most important, we care about the lovingly drawn characters because we’re allowed to join them in truly honest journeys of self-discovery. A pitch-perfect triumph!”

And another: “The Geography Lesson is a fun, fast trip through time to the world of late 1960’s Washington and the Western U.S and back again, with a side of Peruvian adventure. As a fan of Edward Abbey, I loved the excursion through the Canyonlands. As a fan of National Geographic, I loved the Society as the backdrop. Now if only I could get myself to Peru!”

And yet another: “The cover art points to the story line of this entertaining novel, which follows the adventures of National Geographic explorer journalists. The plot was gripping, making me want to read quickly, to find out what happens in the end to the appealing narrator. But I made myself slow down. It’s worth taking your time over this one. Buckley is a Washington insider, with an amazing eye for detail, and if you’re at all interested in Washington media of the last 40 years or so you’ll want to take your time and enjoy every page.”

You can buy it via Amazon, Nook, or Booktango!
