Sylvia V. Hewitt, reviewed on Amazon.com
“Mr. Kaufman has written a fine novel. The character development in The Collectibles is excellent and the setting descriptions place the reader right in the center of all the locations and there are alot. It’s been a lovely read. I laughed, I cried and I wished for more.
Joe Hart is a fascinating character and there is the promise of learning where life takes his Collectibles in the future. I trust we can expect to find out one day. Without being overly sentimental, there are life lessons to be carried away and that’s a challenge for an author to maintain.
Other reviewers have written well about the story line. Suffice it to say that Mr. Kaufman deserves to join that long line of distinguished North Carolina authors. There is an art to crafting a well written book and he should be very proud of having succeeded in his first effort. It’s so nice to discover another new favorite author.
If we are lucky, we will hear more from Mr. Kaufman and if you are looking for a good read, you should settle in with The Collectibles. A chain of car dealerships, boats and beaches, the Adirondacks, big money and low life’s – this book will take you on quite a ride – that’s a promise.”
