Book Review: Doodling by Jonathan Gould

When Neville Lansdowne falls off the world, it isn’t the end of his adventures. In fact, it’s only the beginning. The world has begun moving too quickly for Neville’s tastes, so he decides to fall off—or, rather, “let go” of it—and start over. Once Neville leaves the world, he finds himself in an asteroid field and quickly discovers that he’s not alone. Others have also let go of the world and established new colonies for themselves on the asteroids. The only downfall is that each new person Neville meets seems to be completely insane.

As Neville interacts with his new neighbors and tries to find a place to call home, he soon discovers that the asteroid belt has troubles of its own. Because the world is spinning so fast, it will soon fly off its orbit, destroying any asteroid in its path. The only solution is for Neville to gather his new friends and stop the world before it obliterates the asteroid belt.

It’s easy to find metaphors between the groups Neville meets and real-life people in today’s society. Gould’s Lewis Carroll-like writing style presents the asteroid dwellers in a humorous light that will appeal to readers of all ages. I found myself cheering on Neville and his team, and would recommend Doodling to anyone who enjoys a fun read.
