Trisomy XXI by GA Minton has 266 pages of adventure with twists and turns the reader would not expect. The story begins with an old drunk named Henry, who encounters an unidentified object in the woods. When he tells his story, no one believes him - given his drunken state most of the time. Henry lives in a small town called Tranquil, located in Arizona. The city itself is charming, and its environment and surroundings reflect the meaning of the town's name. The next character is more interesting than the old drunk. He is a 16-year-old boy with Down’s Syndrome, who has an overzealous religious father who believes he is God’s messenger. The story of the boy’s transformation and ordeals in life takes the reader to another dimension throughout the rest of the story.
Trisomy XXI by GA Minton is a story of religion and great encounters unlike many in other books. The chapters are well developed and flow well. The writer tells his story, adding excitement and anticipation from chapter to chapter. The books are suitable for an adult audience. Unless one is aware of the meaning of the word “Trisomy”, they would not know that the book is about a boy with Down’s Syndrome. The struggles of this 16-year-old boy are sometimes frightening; sometimes unbelievable, and sometimes very emotional. The story starts with the old man named Henry and ends with the impact of Henry’s sighting in the forest that no one believed. A long read, but well worth finishing the book.
