A Rabbit’s Tale: An Easter Story by Diogenes Ruiz is an eclectic mix of genres that you will come to love. Juan always wanted to be a professional photographer, but life happened and then his personal preferences and desires took a back seat. As time went on, he perfected the art of pretending to be happy, but he kept on yearning for real happiness. One fateful day, his brother-in-law asked him to wear the Easter bunny costume for a kid’s party and he accepted.
He had no idea that he would lose his marriage, his self and his body. Now, with a crippling side effect of the event reminding him of that fateful day, Juan must learn to live his life. But all is not over. An evil and manic man wants Juan dead, and Juan must help his friend to put this dangerous man behind bars. With so much going on in his life, Juan is questioning God. Does God exist? If He does, then where is He? Why isn’t He helping Juan?
A Rabbit’s Tale: An Easter Story by Diogenes Ruiz was a roller-coaster ride. It is a mishmash of humor, suspense, religion and mystery. Juan is quite a character. He is the perfect eclectic hero for an eclectic novel. Despite that, Ruiz managed to make the novel fun to read. It was very well written and entertaining. I felt that the novel was a little rushed towards the end, but then I knew what was happening and the characters knew as well, so there was no point in beating around the bush. Still, a five-star novel. I’m glad I picked it.
