Julie Christine So curious to hear your thoughts on this. I haven't read it- been so on the fence. Reviews are passionately con and pro!

s.penkevich Great review, I've been teetering on 'should I read this or not' for a long time now. This tipped me over into the READ side, so great work!

Samadrita This is an amazing review. Although it seems this book keeps on getting different ratings from different people.

Thanks. You'll love this book if you are not very particular about narrative structure.

Gino Being able to list dozens of characters without being able to say much about any of them as a PERSON explains why the book is lousy, not that it is good.

Saying that the book is not coherent & has no focus explains why the book is lousy, not that it is good.

Giving positive reviews and awards to books like this explains why it is so hard to find any good, contemporary literature.

Lowest Common Denominator

Loved..."


Thank you.
