Bewilderment: A Novel

An Instant New York Times Bestseller
Shortlisted for the 2021 Booker Prize
Longlisted for the 2021 National Book Award for Fiction

A heartrending new novel from the Pulitzer Prize–winning and #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Overstory.

The astrobiologist Theo Byrne searches for life throughout the cosmos while single-handedly raising his unusual nine-year-old, Robin, following the death of his wife. Robin is a warm, kind boy who spends hours painting elaborate pictures of endangered animals. He’s also about to be expelled from third grade for smashing his friend in the face. As his son grows more troubled, Theo hopes to keep him off psychoactive drugs. He learns of an experimental neurofeedback treatment to bolster Robin’s emotional control, one that involves training the boy on the recorded patterns of his mother’s brain…

With its soaring descriptions of the natural world, its tantalizing vision of life beyond, and its account of a father and son’s ferocious love, Bewilderment marks Richard Powers’s most intimate and moving novel. At its heart lies the question: How can we tell our children the truth about this beautiful, imperiled planet?

Richard Powers - Bewilderment: A Novel Book Reviews

AwesomeBeautifully written. I could not put it down..Score: 5/5

Unbelievably beautiful! Soul crushingly brilliantWhat a beautiful journey and a privilege to have traveled along with Robin and his Dad, Theo. Their beloved mother and wife’s memories and precious bond between them all was so precious and utterly profoundly unforgettable. Every one should have this on their bedside long after they’ve finished this, as it will linger on remain still long long after the book has ended. Remarkable!! Powers blows my mind at each sentence paragraph page and thought. His prose is lyrical and magical filling your heart mind and soul with all of his irreplaceable gifts in his honed skilled and untouchable wisdom that clenches the deepest depths of the soul and brings all emotions and spiritually connected thoughts to the surface while on this otherworldly journey with him. I’m spellbound by his beautiful irrevocable mind.Score: 5/5

Mind blowing!Beautifully woven tale with picturesque descriptions and amazing ideas ranging from astronomy, neuroscience, environmental issues and the meaning of life itself, all nesting within a poignant family story. For fans of Overstory, this is more digestible but as powerful. Short of 5 stars as at times it oscillates between technical and sappy..Score: 4/5
