This is a three and 1/2 star winner in my book. My mom lent it to me this summer in Wisconsin--written by a faculty member at University of Iowa writers' workshop. It was slow at first and I found myself irritated by the seemingly masculinity of the characters, writing style, plot, emotions, etc. That said, once I let myself get into the book I really enjoyed it. It was well-developed, well-written, and filled with just enough political intrigue.

I agree it's a good three and a half star book. Well worth reading with some rich passages, particularly with the main character and his father. I liked it that a lot was made out of so little, which is a nice contrast to books where it's all action and changes of plot.
