Whirligig is an okay book. I do however think that it is not for me. I like fun comedic books while this was slow, dark, and lacking action. While he is setting up the whirligigs not much happens that is really worth mentioning. I belive that the turning point is when Brent sees the first whirligig spinning. As he watched, "The phrase 'breath of life' traveled through his mind." (page 54) This has changed his character because in the beginning he blieved that "his life was a house that had been burned to the ground." (page 17)Yet, when he sees what he has created, he feels fresh and new and glad that he could do something for someone other than himself.
