FIRST WILD CARD TOUR- book review


The Key to the Kingdom by Jeff Dixon


My take:  There are a couple of things I need to set as background.  First, I'm the type of person who generally picks up a fiction book and doesn't put it down until I have finished it.  Second, while I enjoy Disney, particularly "classic" Disney, I'm not a rabid Disney fan.

This Disney-based mystery intrigued me though, and I was looking forward to reading it.  However, it was a long way into the book before I hit that "can't put it down" point.

If you can suspend your disbelief, this book is a lot of fun.  He roams Walt Disney World, going in and out of a bazillion attractions.  I did visit Disney (World more than Land) reasonably frequently from around 1975-1985, so there was a lot that was familiar to me.  The realism of the portions of the park with which I am familiar did make the whole setting of the story seem believable. 

Hawk, the main character, is a pastor.  At no point in the novel does the tone get preachy or in-your-face.  But at least some aspects of Christianity are woven in.

If you are a Disney fan (rabid or not!) I think you would really enjoy this book.  The Disney history is fabulous, and the fantasy aspect is fun.
