Eric, or, Little by Little

by Frederic William Farrar

An excellent and easy read. Really. I was very surprised how I felt for Eric. It is a story of a boy gone bad by the 'little' things in life. Hence the title. A great cathartic journey of a teen through the vices of drinking, smoking, and worse as told through Victorian eyes. The message of choices and charater are the same today. It is about suffering, faith, and redemption. Even though I'm moving in the direction of being an atheist, I found the moral narrative soulful and reflective of my own life. I'm putting together a list of a few select books to suggest to my son when he transitions into his teens. This will be on the list.
