Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read Fallsy Downsies is the best book I've read in a long while. Stephanie Domet is such a talented writer in the way she draws you into the story and introduces you to the characters with such care and feeling that you find yourself becoming part of the story. When I had finished the book I had the feeling that I may never find another book with characters that would capture my heart like this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great read of the Year! Opening Fallsy Downsies you are immediately are drawn into the lives of its characters and feel like you are travelling along right beside them. This story of personal growth, reflection and acceptance will give you some chuckles and leave you wanting more. Domet's imagery is outstanding. It's not the flowering long-winded kind, but the kind that takes you there immediately. Best is her ability to express those everyday things in a way that makes you relate personally with the characters of Evan Cornfield, Dacey Brown, and of course, Lansing Meadows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best discovery in years - wonderful author, and wonderful read Fallsy Downsies quickly became my favourite new read of the year,and I am thrilled to have encountered the work of such a warm and intelligent author. Domet presents the story of an aging folk music icon and his young travelling companion and protégé with sensivity born of a deep love for the characters, and a warm understanding of Canadian folk music history and the lived reality of its practitioners. The female lead of the novel's trio of protagonists was a particularly delightful surprise, deftly side-stepping the expected roles of siren or muse while navigating her own personal journey with integrity and authenticity. At some points this novel made me cry.  At many others, it made my heart swell with respect.  Throughout, its imagery took me on a beautifully rendered journey "on the road" that I wanted to never end. Furthermore, Fallsy Downsies is not a long novel and is a highly  engaging and accessible read - I have already given over a half dozen copies as gifts. Highly,  highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't want it to end! A wonderful story that both captivates and inspires! Unable to put it down, I was highly invested in the characters and the scenery of Canada. As soon as the last page was read, I missed the characters who now felt like friends!
