A Magical Realism Gardening Mystery
While gardeners tend their hostas, hostas tend their gardeners . . .

What fun it was sharing Funky’s adventurer! Such whimsy. Such savvy. I swear I’ve heard my own hostas emphing, and I ache for the ones showing signs of ratsonstilts damage! I promise to be more dutiful … cross my crown and hope to be eaten by slugs 🙂

If you are looking for a fun and thoughtful summer read, you will enjoy this book. I know very little about gardening and even less about Hostas, but definitely now want to garden after this book and include a Hosta (or two.)
You don’t have to be a Hosta lover or gardener to appreciate this book. The theme of this book spoke to me from a completely spiritual perspective. I liked reading what I have learned, and try to apply every day, in Hosta Seizure from a completely different perspective.
Highly recommend and hope another book is in the works!

Jim Henry’s entertaining debut novel, Hosta Seizure, is a murder mystery of sorts–one told by a new author who puts a magical realism spin on the genre with great effect. You don’t need to know anything about hostas to enjoy this book, but you might want to pick up a couple of plants after reading. This is the most wonderful book I’ve read in years. It’s quirky and original and gives you great insight into a gardener’s mind. This book is great for anyone who wants to understand life from the perspective of others. As Funky and Demetrio’s worlds collide they find out something far more important than the answer to the missing client. 👍🏽

Finished reading Jim Henry’s Hosta Seizure. Really enjoyed it. It took a little longer than I expected because I was trying to list the different hostas as they were named ( got 163). I am a hosta enthusiast and because of all the useful information learned from Funky and Demetrio and the hosta characters, I will look at my garden with a totally different viewpoint. I will probably talk to them more and try to listen for what they might be “emphing” at me.
Looking forward to the continuing adventures in the garden.
