In the distant future, people have regressed and live simple lives without machines or technology. Bur, a primitive and uneducated man, spends his days fishing and ignoring the village folk. Nothing stirs his mind or life, but this all changes when he fishes a mysterious sealed box out of the lake. Without modern tools, Bur tries elaborate ways to open the box. All his ideas prove unsuccessful. He enlists the help of his friend, Port, and the two finally manage to open the box. Unfortunately, the pair have yet to learn what they have in their possession. Get a copy of Should Have Stayed Home by James Huber and join Bur and Port as they decipher the box's contents.
Should Have Stayed Home Is a laugh-out-loud read that will take you on a roller coaster of unpredictable events. James Huber’s writing had me equally intrigued and delighted. Bur is a naive yet lovable character. His intellect may be challenged, but his heart is always in the right place. His curiosity and willingness to open up to new possibilities were admirable. Bur and Port had great chemistry, and their crazy interactions and ideas are the driving force of this tale. The irony of them wanting to read but not knowing what reading means, and little details like counting days by moons, was comedy gold. It is well-written, and I loved reading it. Ultimately, Huber adds details that make you wonder if the contents were worth all the trouble. You will have to read the book to figure this out.
