The possibilities of the day niggled at Wizard’s mind like a kite tugs on a string.

ON THE FAR WESTERN SHORE of a northern continent there was once a harbor city called Seattle. The possibilities of the day niggled at Wizard’s mind like a kite tugs on a string. So, although he had been standing for some time at a bus stop, when the bus finally came snorting into sight, he wandered away from the other passengers, letting his feet follow their own inclination. When he reached the corner of Yesler Way, he turned and followed it downhill, toward the bay. The sidewalk was as busy as the narrow crowded street, but Wizard still halted in the middle of it, forcing the flow of pedestrians to part and go around him.

Wizard of the Pigeons is a magical book about magic. I finished it yesterday and I have set aside all other as-yet-unread fiction for awhile so that I can savor an undiluted memory of the scenes, characters, indeed truth within the story.

He rolled from his mattress and leaped at a darker patch of moving night. Ninja gave a howl of dismay and released a flapping bird. Wizard gripped the big black cat by the scruff of her neck.

I read this wonderful book years ago and returned to it often but my copy has disappeared. I loved the story and found the description of locations and feelings of place reminiscent of Ray Bradbury. Some writers can capture the feelings of time and place so well and Ms. Lindholm certainly did in this book. Makes you wand to wander the streets of Seattle on a fall morning.

This book, set in Seattle, has been/is very important to me. Remember to know yourself and why you exist. Not at all Eastern in philosophy, this book shows what can happen when you don't know yourself; and, that other people can be harmed when you don't pay attention. Very much a strong fantasy!

In a better world, this book was an instant classic, widely read and adored by all. In our world, it represents the "urban fantasy" genre in a way that is both gentle and slightly dark, but is usually forgotten. When someone who's grown out of Harry Potter or His Dark Materials asks me what they should read next, Wizard of the Pigeons is what leaps to my mind. Hat-tip to the (sadly defunct) lostbooks.org review which brought this gem to my attention.

Wizard of the Pigeons is a magical book about magic. I finished it yesterday and I have set aside all other as-yet-unread fiction for awhile so that I can savor an undiluted memory of the scenes, characters, indeed truth within the story. Its musical language captures the unspeakable battle between a spirit awakened in the crucible of war and the man terrified to claim it for himself. It is a fundamentally true story which brings hope to all of us who became unrecognizable to ourselves in the aftermath of Viet Nam.

This is a powerful book. I'm not sure that I can explain it but it sticks with me. It is very haunting. Just when I thought I had figured it out, I realized that I had not. The is fine, fine writing by one of my favorite authors. I gave it only a 4 because I do not trust 5 reviews.

I thought I'd like the book because the story premise appealed to me, but I didn't know how amazing the writing would be. Pure pleasure. I am eager to read something else by this author.

Not a bad read....I thought the ending was strange. I love Robin Hobb and this was really NO comparison at all. Forgettable.
Magical.
