Kurzbeschreibung

Lennon Bagg’s daughter has been stolen away by his ex-wife, and he’s just learned the newspaper he reports for is bankrupt. While on his final assignment, Bagg knocks a policeman unconscious to save the life of a runaway circus bear, and suddenly finds himself responsible for a band of stranded roustabouts who’ve pitched their tents on a small island along the New Jersey shore. Eight hundred miles away, a young girl searches for her dead father on the beaches of Bermuda. Dead people, after all, become birds—a theory she derived from her mother’s explanation that when you die, you grow wings and fly away. A hapless cult leader and the sulking newspaper reporter hatch a plan to save the circus, which includes a plane ride into the Bermuda Triangle accompanied by a man who holds the record for being struck by lightning. And it’s starting to cloud up ... /In THE BEAR IN A MUDDY TUTU, hope is something vigorously avoided because it usually means someone is about to be run over by a speeding car.

First I've read from this author-will surely read more! From the first moment characters were introduced, they were captivating in the most endearing manner-especially the bear!

The Bear in the Muddy Tutu is a great book. It's absurd and very entertaining.
If you like Carl Hiaasen, you might enjoy this book (although this has less murder mystery)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Delightful story! 1. Dezember 2011

I bought this book for my kindle, because it came up as a recommendation, when I was looking at books by John Irving, one of my favorite authors. Like another reviewer, I was struck by the similarities in 'voice' between the two authors, but Cole Alpaugh definitely has his own very distinctive style nonetheless, and I enjoyed this book from start to finish. I thought of it often during the day and could not wait to pick it up again in the evening, until I finished it, thinking of all the quirky characters he brought to life. I will definitely be watching for more from this author.

Cole Alpaugh's book, The Bear in a Muddy Tutu, immediately had my full attention as it began with the story of Buddy Wayne Hooduk, an odd character of sorts who has just abandoned his needy mother and is intent on convincing people that he is God. With stolen guidebook in hand, How To Become a Cult Leader in 50 Easy Steps, Buddy sets out to find his flock. Odd circumstances cause Buddy to take charge of a run-down traveling circus where an oddball loser like Buddy doesn't seem so out of place.

It is here in the book that the reader is introduced to a variety of characters and you quickly learn that this book just isn't about Buddy. In fact, pretty soon Buddy is out of the center circus ring and we find ourselves following the story lines of several other more interesting characters from a drunken ranger obsessed with killing bugs to a lonely reporter who has lost his daughter thanks to his ex-wife running away with the little girl.

And since you are following a circus, there's all sorts of Midway characters and Side Show freaks coming and going from the storyline that, while not the center of the plot, are just as alluring. A sexy contortionist, a man who has survived lightning strikes a dozen times, the flat man, and the human cannonball to name a few.

My favorite character had to be Gracie the Dancing Bear - an old toothless bear in a pink tutu who becomes separated from the circus during a bizarre accident. Alpaugh treats Gracie's point of view no differently than when he is writing about the other characters. It's as if this is a story he's engagingly told out loud for years possibly to his children. In fact, Gracie becomes a living metaphor for a story Lennon Bagg, the reporter, used to tell to his daughter Morgan at bedtime each night about a bear who wanted a circus magician to turn her into a bird.

Although the reader's attention is focused on Buddy and whether or not he can convince the circus that he is indeed God and whether or not they will build a altar to him, the underlying focus of the book will take you by surprise. It is in fact the story of Lennon and his daughter. The author bares his soul as we witness the desperate loneliness of Lennon who has been searching for Morgan for over a year.

And then we are treated to chapters told from Morgan's point of view as she is stowed away in Bermuda after her mother told her Daddy was dead. Obsessed with birds and convinced her father has turned into one, Morgan becomes the punchline of her classmates' jokes as she searches the island and talks to birds about her father. And sometimes the birds talk back!

I was a third of the way through the book and still had no idea where the sotry was taking me. Buddy and the circus attempt to set up permanent residence on an old island, while Lennon finds Gracie and tries to reunite her with the circus. And yet, by the last page, the reader is treated to an ending that is as satisfying as cold lemonade and cotton candy.

Alpaugh pens a world of fascinating characters, not to mention their bizarre unforgettable names, reminding us that it is our individuality and uniqueness that makes each of us special in our own way. If we look past our differences, we can see people for who they really are and we can appreciate the little things that make each of us tick.

The fate of each character plays on our hearts as Alpaugh takes us deeper and deeper into each persona. I felt like I knew these characters inside and out, and while the story might lack action at times, the author pushes the story forward with a multitude of point-of-views. If you are looking for a "big top" read with lots of heart and laughs, and characters you can sit down with to listen to their story for a spell, magic, whimsy, and dancing bears, then look no further than Cole Alpaugh's The Bear in a Muddy Tutu.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A muddy grungy fairy tale 15. Juli 2013
Von Yvonne B - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
A great read that takes you all over the place and deceives you about the real centre of the story. An easy, if slightly puzzling read with a film of grime covering much of the tale a book for people who love meandering tales full of strange wonderful unlikeable and fascinating characters.
